Google employees have been given the unofficial “green light” to be evil if they wish to be.
Google has removed the phrase “Don’t be Evil” from their employee manual.
I’m waiting for this story…
“Well, I had planned on donating blood today but I saw that my company [Google] had removed the don’t be evil thing from the employee book…thing and well, I decided to run over a bunch of puppies instead. You know…since it’s ok now…and all.”
I found a pretty good article that talks about why Americans seem so dumb today compared to what they were just a few decades ago.
The article points to the education system but I disagree about why Americans aren’t as smart as they used to be.
The number of American citizens who can do very high-end research who also can easily get security clearances is limited,” Ignatius says. “The ability of our schools to produce American students at a world-class level, that’s an important national challenge.
Again, I disagree to a point. I believe the problem is something else entirely. Do college graduates really need to remember anything? In the age of “just Google it” do we really need to even try to retain information? I believe the answer is no. If I can’t remember a song, there is an app for that. If I can’t remember what camping gear I need to take with me — again I can just Google it.
Today if you go to Google.com, you’ll get to create some music.
It is very cool.
