              AFAIK it’s not the first time an artist gets in trouble with Google.

              Off the top of my head, I can think of the Google will eat itself project.

              It’s a different approach, and it’s already 10+ years old, but it may be worth mentioning… http://www.gwei.org/

                Heh, that GWEI project is interesting, but I suspect Google’s objection is more nuanced than “the government says culture is bad. Fuck art.”
