Google is Center of the New Post-State World

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

It’s a¬†grandiose¬†title to this post, but I can’t imagine any other way to think about it. Google has more impact in my day-to-day life than my local government. And I trust Google a whole lot more (witness the Obama vs. House Republicans encounter here – hilarious – until you realize these people rule us).

This is a report of the briefing Google gave at Davos on Friday, made by the author of “What Would Google Do?”. While I have my quibbles about the intellectual depth of the book – once you read the title, do you need to read anything more? – I’m completely behind the treatise of the book, and it makes Jeff Jarvis the perfect person to report this.
