What makes China so afraid of Google?

Google means way more than just a search engine. There's far more than that. It puts people's memory together. Can you not be amazed how powerful it is when it comes to facilitating every user to contribute their own little pieces of history to the nation's? "Open collaboration" are the words in the red rectangle on this Google Map with locations of the tanks, students, journalists, fire, Deng Xiao-ping and so forth. For some people, openness and exchange are two extremely frightening concepts.
