Google Meets Big Brother
These posters are by Stéphane Massa-Bidal slyly explaining Google’s services.
I’ve extolled Google’s existence in our daily lives in the past. These posters, on the other hand, paint a different picture. I don’t know why we don’t think twice about it, but for one company to have access to 99% of our information is frightening. Imagine having a girlfriend who reads all of your e-mails, knows exactly what porn sites you visit, and then plants a homing device on you. Except your girlfriend is really awesome because she doesn’t ask if you she looks fat as a trick question and you don’t have to read her mind, but she can read yours and does everything for you. That would be Google.
Still, I suppose some people do cherish their privacy and are unsettled at the fact that Google has this much control over our lives. I would be complaining more about it if Google wasn’t so good at what they do.
