CSR Wire: Don’t Be Evil: What’s the Matter with Google?

  Don't Be Evil: What's the Matter with Google? Has Google lost its way? Why is the organization now funding regressive organizations fronting for the fossilized sectors and legacy incumbent interests holding back the green economy? What happened to the founders' mission of catalyzing a whole-system transition from the fossil-fueled Industrial Era to the cleaner, knowledge-rich, green economies of the Solar Age? Then there is the organization's misplaced R&D efforts narrowly focused on linear, often trivial extensions of IT, like Google Glass and its privacy implications.
