Google's CEO Eric Schmidt is speaking some truth (link here)
"I don't believe society understands what happens when everything is available, knowable and recorded by everyone all the time... I mean we really have to think about these things as a society."
and... for those who might 'expect' or 'trust there's internet privacy' (link here)
"we know roughly who you are, roughly what you care about, roughly who your friends are."
Those statements are true, and they reveal what Schmidt and his leviathan are focusing on developing, irregardless of Facebook anarchy or annoyance.
But he is also delusional and self aggrandizing: (link here)
""I actually think most people don't want Google to answer their questions," he elaborates. "They want Google to tell them what they should be doing next.""
I am not part of the Idiocracy of which Eric Schmidt wants to rule / market to / manipulate / and INSTRUCT. No, I still have a few neurons to rub against each other and I'm capable of free thought, and making my own decisions. I don't need Google, or anyone else, deciding for me, thank you. Leave your instructions for the lemmings in the herd who are barely capable of independent thought.
Schmidt's myopic, self exaggerations of omnipotence, are dangerous, and should be duly noted and kept in perspective accordingly.
