Google, Inc. is possibly the most fascinating company on the planet. In an information age, they are the source of more information than any other company - and as information shapes people's views, being able to control that information is of utmost importance. Google also has the best and worst of a lot of worlds... it allows every voice to be heard; but that includes the crazies, the crackpots, the bigots, etc. It also ranks - using complex algorithms - the most 'important' views on any given subject... whether or not they happen to be factually correct.
Anyway, I've always found it interesting. They're a scarily powerful company.
Meanwhile, in other news, Google has basically gotten a ruling that allows Orthomom to defend herself if she so chooses... and she so chooses. All in all, not bad - it does mean that assuming Orthomom can defend herself (which it seems clear she can with ease) Google will not be releasing her information.
Adar is a good month, isn't it? :)
