  • Google’s former CEO predicts that the internet will split into two parts

Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. Now, The Intercept is reporting that Google tried - and apparently, failed - to suppress a memo that may have revealed how that search engine could have allowed the Chinese government to track those citizens who used it.

His prediction is considered important as Google is pushing hard to launch a Chinese and censored version of its search engine named; the secret search engine is named "Project Dragonfly".

He told an audience at a private event in San Francisco that he foresees a break between the Chinese-led internet and the non-Chinese led internet. These email demands include "pixel trackers" which notify the Human Resources department that they have been read.

Schmidt said he thinks people will likely see "fantastic leadership in products and services from China", noting the scale of the nation's business, the massive wealth being created there and the advance of global trade, according to the report. It describes the Google's joint-project with China as "in a pretty advanced state."The statement from our high-level leadership that Dragonfly is just an experiment seems wrong", claims the memo's author".

The Dragonfly Project was already created to censor search queries, but the memo notes it is even more complex, stating that the unnamed Chinese partner could add to the blacklist and "selectively edit search result pages ... unilaterally, and with few controls seemingly in place". Subsequently, Google human resources personnel emailed employees who were believed to have accessed or saved copies of the memo and ordered them to immediately delete it from their computers.
