Google Becomes an Adult!

Google joined the “adult” world today by hiring a lobbying firm…it’s true. According to Kate Phillips of the New York Times, “the quintessential outsider, Google is moving quickly into the ultimate insider’s game: lobbying.”

“It’s sad,” said Esther Dyson, editor of the technology newsletter Release 1.0 and former chairwoman of Icann, a nonprofit group that plays a role in Internet administration. “The kids are growing up. They’ve lost youth and innocence. Now they have to start being grown-ups and playing at least to some extent by grown-up rules.”

Hey, it’s alright by me, we all have to play the game well at sometime! I’ve been fortunate to have used their search since 2001 and it looks like Google Finance will work out well for me.
