What the Hell Happened to You, Google?
Remember back in the day when everyone was enamored by Google? Its “Don’t Be Evil” mantra was echoed across the Internet, respected and loved by all. That slogan was coined back in 2006. Nonetheless, the slogan’s guiding principles served at the core of its foundation in the early days when it was only Larry, Sergey, and a couple of other engineers.
Now, look at what has happened: Search Plus Your World, the “Don’t Be Evil” bookmarklet, and Page’s “new” direction for the company. Oh, and don’t forget all those creepy and anti-privacy Eric Schmidt has made in the past year or so. You remember those, right?
Honestly, it would make me happy—and not to mention countless others—to see your once fresh and empowering ideas of a Better Internet resurface. But it might be too late now.
