How Google Dominates Us
by noteworthy at 7:45 am EDT, Aug 2, 2011

Lawrence Lessig:

There may be a quid. There may be a quo. But because the two are independent, there is no pro.

James Gleick:

Google makes more from advertising than all the nation's newspapers combined.

What it means to own information is very much in flux. There is no information utopia. Google users are parties to a complex transaction, and if there is one lesson to be drawn ... it is that we are not always witting parties.

This much is clear: We need to decide what we want from Google. If only we can make up our collective minds. Then we still might not get it.

Charlie Brooker:

Suddenly there is no stick. There's just you. You are the stick.

Malcom Gladwell:

There is no point in raising standards if standards don't track with what we care about.

Mark Foulon:

It has become clear that Internet access in itself is a vulnerability that we cannot mitigate. We have tried incremental steps and they have proven insufficient.

Sarah Palin:

The view is so much better from inside the bus than under it.

Eric Schmidt:

If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place.

Jack Kerouac:

"You boys going to get somewhere, or just going?" We didn't understand his question, and it was a damned good question.
