Google: We see no evil.


I’m very disappointed in the Google board’s recommended decision to reject a shareholder request for a human rights committee and anti-censorship rules.

These decisions make Google’s claims to be improving search around the globe ring somewhat  … hollow:  Official Google Blog: Making search better in Catalonia, Estonia, and everywhere else

I have a longer post about this  this over at WebGuild

Over there I wrote:

This is a sad day for Google and the recommendation is a death blow to their now transparently specious “Do No Evil” mantra. Google has an obligation to promote human rights within the reasonably confines of their business structure and goals. In this obligation, they have now dramatically failed.
