Don't be evil

The petition reads:
"As a Google user, I am telling you, 'Don't be evil.' The deal between Google and Verizon as reported by the New York Times is evil because it undermines the open Internet upon which hundreds of millions of people rely. Live up to your founding motto, walk away from this deal and save the Internet."
Tell Google what you think.

I signed, not that it will matter, with our wholly corporate-owned government these days. They will permit it; the internet will decline into a massive corporate empire; email will go from 25 percent spam to 100 percent; a typical blog will take 10 minutes to load; etc. etc. We cannot stop it.

Stella, rearranging our office (one of her hobbies is rearranging), ran across that old cartoon of two dogs sitting and talking, and I'm going to put it up near my computer. One dog says to the other, "I had my own blog for a while, but I decided to go back to just pointless, incessant barking." Why not... the one has as much effect on the world as the other, and requires a lot less work.

Well.. even the pointless incessant barking has the mainstream media angry and confused, which is a good thing.
