Google Wrestles with Privacy

An "Editorial Observer" column by Adam Cohen in today’s New York Times ponders the growing tension between Google’s two core operating principles: first, "to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful"; and second, to turn away from all wickedness, summed up in the corporate motto, "Don’t be evil."

Fretting about Google’s imperial ambitions is a semi-hot preoccupation in part because of the high-minded values and goals of founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page. And the axis on which much of the fretting occurs is that of privacy. Google Wrestles with Privacy - CIO News Alerts - Blog - CIO
