From Bloomberg Business:
“The issue of local search result fairness is an evolving issue in a fast-paced digital economy,” Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said in a joint letter with the attorney general for the District of Columbia. “We encourage the commission to consider new information and developments that have become available both domestically and internationally since closing its Google investigation.”
“Don’t be evil” was the corporate slogan from the earliest days of Google.
How is that working for you?
I am naturally skeptical of government bureaucrats looking to expand their power. On the other hand Google has become extremely powerful. Here is where we cue Lord Acton, “power corrupts” or Spiderman, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
Google has literally changed the world in remarkable ways. Remarkable and for the most part very positive ways.
Google is now so big it is easy to imagine that some of the things they are doing will hurt some people while advantaging others. They have systems that are designed to promote Google. Is that bad? Is that something the government needs to police?
Perfection is the enemy of the good.
