Just watched a very interesting doco on our "fifth" television station here, SBS, on the spreading influence of Google. It was titled, "Google: Behind The Screen" and was an interesting expose behind the rise of Google and its widening and sometimes tightening grip on our world of digital information. It was put together by a Dutch documentary team but thankfully was screened in English (for this monolingual blogger.) Not sure how anyone could get to view it if you wanted to but it was very watchable. I love the 20% rule that is in place for Google employees. One day of their working week is given over to employees pursuing their own choice of work related interests - imagine if educators were valued that highly!
