Methinks they doth protest too much.

Not only was Shakespeare the father of the modern English language, he also was very good at human psychology. He had human behavior well analyzed.

So I quote him. (I hated reading Shakespeare at School. There is a vast difference between reading for pleasure and one’s own reasons, and reading for exams. As for Chaucer – I’d sooner read Latin).

From The Resister (A British IT web newsletter, complete with British Humor)

Here’s the quote:

But, Jones asserted, Google is eminently trustworthy – more trustworthy than your government, in fact. “I think you should decide the following thing: do you want the world’s information available to you? And if you do, it’s gotta come from one of two sources: either your government – or like the United Nations or some other government – or its gotta come from a company,” he said…

And how well is Google doing in its noble service of truth? “So far,” Jones said, “I think we get an ‘A’ – or even maybe ‘A+’.”

The Reg would like to point its dear readers to the qualifier Jones added to his self-congratulatory grading: “So far.” ®

I believe Google, no really I do, oh yes, absolutely and completely. Why would I ever question the actions of a secretive for profit organization (who’ll collect particulars to do evil for profit, and provide particulars to my less-than-trustworthy Government)?
