Kai Fu Lee: Following His Heart To The Miracle Of Google

Kai Fu Lee: I need to follow my heart from ZDNet is a continuation of the Microsoft-Google fight over Kai Fu Lee, the in limbo head of Google China. It summarizes a letter Lee published on the web to former students, explaining that he's following his heart to Google because of the new passion he finds there to explore technology and products "beyond just the search." He even gives a formula of:

youth + freedom + transparency + new model + the general public's benefit + belief in trust = The Miracle of Google

Google's been compared to God before, and now it's miraculous as well. Whether it will be able to work a miracle in getting Lee free of his non-compete clause with Microsoft remains to be seen. More background on that in our past post, Microsoft Gets Temporary Restraining Order in Google Case.
