Es ist so heiß, ich kann momentan der Schokolade beim Schmelzen und meiner Haut beim braun werden zusehen. Und wieso müssen Ventilatoren so laut sein?


Gerade gelesen im Wikipedia-Artikel über Googles Claim „Don’t be evil“:

In 2006, when Google declared their self-censorship move into China, their „Don’t be evil“ motto was somewhat replaced with an „evil scale“ balancing systems allowing smaller evils for a greater good, as explained by CEO Eric Schmidt at the time.



However, Elliot Schrage, at the time vice-president of public communications and global affairs, at a testimony hearing before the Committee on International Relations of the U.S. House of Representatives, responded to these accusations with an apology where he claims that it is better for Chinese citizens to have access to some of Google, which can be achieved via partial self-censorship, than to be completely censored anyway by the Chinese government and give no access at all. He goes on to state that „[w]e believe that our current approach to China is consistent with this mantra [‚don’t be evil‘]. Our hope is that our mix of measures, though far from our ideal, would accomplish more for Chinese citizens’ access to information than the alternative.“

Hmpf, auch nicht viel besser.

I had a dream where a guy put a portable CD player in his boiling spaghetti water and played carefully selected music so his food would taste better.
