Google: Now an Alleged Internet Parasite

April 6, 2009

Colorful that “Internet parasite” phrase. The bad Google PR blitz continues. Australian IT’s Jane Schulze wrote “Google Dubbed Internet Parasite”. You can read the article with this colorful headline here. One of the most interesting passages in the write up quoted Robert Thomson from the Wall Street Journal allegedly saying:

They [Google] are basically editorial echo chambers rather than centres of creation, and the cynicism they have about so-called traditional media is only matched by their opportunism in exploiting the quality of traditional media,” he said.

Mathematicians are not exactly top notch marketers. Will Google respond or float above the hoi polloi, which now seems to consist of content patricians in a bit of financial bind.
