Google: “Don’t Be Evil”

by Eric Pena on June 27, 2008

When I first had access to the Internet in the mid 90s, Google was non-existent. Popular search engines then were Excite, Alta Vista, Infoseek, Lycos and of course Yahoo! Well, except for Yahoo, the other web search engine pioneers may now be unheard of today. I learned about Google in 1999 and since then it has become my default search engine, and I guess so too with most people today. So how did two Stanford University students created the search engine that practically ended all other search engines and built a company that is now one of the biggest software companies in the world? With Google’s slogan of “Don’t be evil”, can we trust them to keep our information in its vast databases safe from others? Find out in this video about this company that was rated by Fortune Magazine multiple times as the #1 Best Place to Work, and its drive to become the #1 software company in the world.

I guess we can trust them.
They haven’t proven themselves unreliable but convienent.
Since I myself use gmail and love it!
Ive also heard about their working facility; they feed you for free ;)
I hope I can work there some day.

Trust them? I sure hope so because we have no other choice and it’s too late to get back all the info they have on us, even if we can. I trust the Google techie guys but let’s be wary of the business people. After all, money is the root of all evil and their slogan is aptly intended for those who manage their billions.
