Thinking about Google

Benedict Evans has some interesting thoughts on Google. Of note: this is one of the only articles I’ve read on Google lately without using the word “creepy.”

    Tim Bray just announced he was leaving Google.

    Creepy is the easy, lazy writers tool just like you guys say about much of Apple articles.

    I’m happy to see an intelligent view without all the slant. Props for posting it.

      “Of note: this is one of the only articles I’ve read on Google lately without using the word ‘creepy.’”

      Like Pauline Kael’s “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon,” this says more about the speaker than the subject.

    This was still creepy to me.

    Very good. Two great metaphors that try to understand Google from a different point of view.
