A large crater to dump my thoughts

Google’s definition of net neutrality

leave a comment »

Despite its public support for net neutrality earlier, Google seems to think that it does not apply to wireless networks and that, if money changes hands, some traffic could be more equal than other traffic. Sigh.

It looks like Google’s internal culture is (albeit slowly) changing for the worse, or at least its outside policies are. Last year saw a couple of incidents surrounding privacy, most worryingly Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s comments on the value of privacy. There was also the hasty rollout of Google Buzz, and the incidents with collected wireless network information.

Google is still doing better than a lot of other tech companies, but it’s going downhill. I hope this trend can be reversed.
