The thing that really struck me was how many firms that we think of as strictly civilian had ties to the Pentagon. Companies like Apple, Starbucks, Oakley the sunglasses manufacturer. Even Google, and a lot of big corporations like PepsiCo, Colgate-Palmolive, and Nestle, that you don’t normally think of as defense contractors.
Google the name Prometheus, and see how often it has been given to innovations in many different fields, notably science, medicine and space exploration. The fire he stole can be seen, too, as the spark generating all artistic creativity.
Google has withdrawn from China, arguing that it is no longer willing to design its search engine to block information that the Chinese government does not wish its citizens to have. In liberal democracies around the world, this decision has generally been greeted with enthusiasm.
People think that when you use Google you’re finding exactly what you need, but really, you need expert help.
My mind works like Google for images. You put in a key word; it brings up pictures.
People are adamant learning is not just looking at a Google page. But it is. Learning is looking at Google pages. What is wrong with that?
I’m a visual thinker, not a language-based thinker. My brain is like Google Images.
