I don't like the idea of Google coming after "us" academics. But as an ex-academic, I appreciate what I can learn from Google far more than what a
panel of "experts" in my field, or related fields, could tell me. Everybody has an agenda, including Google. But theirs is so huge, they could mostly
care less about academics, right? And if an idea has teeth, even Google can't stop it. I mean, I didn't need Google to find this forum post, dig?
All I'm saying is, screw academia. Google represents free speech far better, and far more completely, than a bunch of stuck-up, presumptive,
lecturing, over-educated, judgetarian academics ever will.
In other words, Anonymous Geeks Rule the Universe!!! Including they rule Google itself, whether Google knows it or not. A single man or woman with
access to codes that drive a search algorithm on Google potentially has more power than all the news media combined. And rest assured, many human
beings know how to hack aspects of Google. The corporations's agenda may be large, but no agenda can controll all the complex information resources
they own, which resources include most importantly the people who work there, especially the coders and developers.
I spent a day there once, being an expert on something. There's a lot of smart, savvy, competitive, ruthless people there with their own personal
(diverse) agendas. In spite of the great setting and incredible food, I couldn't stand it there. It's a massive hive of hive-minded twenty- and
thirty-somethings. But frankly, those people aren't old enough to control the rest of us. They are too driven by horomones, idealism, materialism, and
sheer ordinariness to control the discourse of the world. The rank and file of Google is too desperate to succeed to agree with itself -- or to not
manipulate the system for personal reasons.
So goes my reasoning, for why Google is lame excuse for a state. It's a megacorporation, like IBM or Microsoft. Its day has arrived, and it too will
fade as other corporate entities, like Tesla, come to dominate the future economy more and more. Also, Google doesn't own the IoT. That's the future
of data-mining, and it's a wild, open frontier.
