'don't be evil' [Oct. 16th, 2006|03:10 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |thomas dolby - the flat earth]

so youtube has been snapped up by google) for $1.6bn, (quite a snip in my opinion), and the blogerati are a bit miffed, they are beginning to see google as the new microsoft, but hey, it could have been worse, it could have been newscorp or even fox (shudder).

ok, so google is now a megacorp, with all the disadvantages to liberalism that that entails.

can it stay true to it's founding principle, don't be evil?
yes and no

anyway here's some classic daily show, from youtube, for you to enjoy and shake your head at:
'sometimes the comedy just writes itself..:'

a times to kill
what exactly is president bush's job?
even stephens - religion
this week in god - limbo
tolerable cruelty
vp shoots 78yr old man in the face
the war on christmas
america freaks out II: the re-freakening

keep google free!

i wouldn't consider google a megacorp just yet, when they start owning newspapers, and TV channels, and making movies.. then, i consider them at the very most.. a media-megacorp.. when they make appliances, food, exporting/importing, and factories outside of the US... then.. the are full blown, a be nothing but evil, megacorp.

I love the Daily Show :)

As for Google... Thank goodness they snapped YouTube. One of the many reasons I don't use MySpace is because of who owns it.
