Newsweek Cover
posted:
I did this cover for this week's international edition of Newsweek.   The story is titled "Clash of the Titans—How the Democratic Republic of Google is testing China's appetite for democracy itself".  Google's questionable relationship with China met it's end when Google caught Chinese agents hacking into Gmail accounts to get information about dissident groups.  I worked with Adolfo Valle on this cover.  I've done a few covers for him and he's always been great to work with.


From the story: "Google CEO Eric Schmidt pointed out to me last week. It is the only major country with an elaborate, formal system of censorship that all information-oriented companies must accept. That's why in China, if you type the words "Tiananmen Square" or "Dalai Lama" into Google (or Baidu, the country's leading search engine), you will find mostly blocked sites. At the same time, China has been busily developing the world's most elaborate apparatus devoted to cyber-spying and cyberattacks. Chinese hacking has ramped up over the past few years, directed not only at human-rights organizations, but, importantly, at foreign businesses and governments. Many, if not most, such attacks originate from China; former National Security Agency director William Studeman has called them the "biggest single problem" facing the U.S. national-security establishment."
