グーグル対中方針はセルゲイ・ブリンの意向:Sergey Brin's behind Google's China Ploy

Google's bold stand against China was Sergey Brin's personal decision.  The Independent shares some of his life stories.;
Brin was born in Moscow in August 1973, to parents whose ambitions had been thwarted by the state.

He became a mathematician, and even then was forced to take more challenging exams than his non-Jewish peers to gain entry to university. He passed, as did Eugenia – later his wife, and Sergey's mother. The family lived with Michael's mother in a small, three-room apartment in Moscow but, after meeting Western delegates at a Warsaw maths conference in 1977, Michael decided his future lay beyond the borders of the USSR.

After applying for an exit visa, Sergey's father was fired from his job, so in the long months before the Brins were at last given permission to leave the country, he taught his young son computer programming.   -read more at The Independent
