Google Embraces Its Status Quo Despite Govt Inquiries

June 11, 2009

I am fearful of quoting from an Associated Press story. You may be able to find the story “Google Unfazed by 3 US Government Inquiries” here. The author is an AP technology writer, but the story seems to be about business methods, not technology. Puzzling to me in Harrod’s Creek it is. The story carries a Newsweek logo as well, and I don’t have the energy to try and figure that out. The point of the write up seems to be that Google says, “Business as usual.” Its position is to keep on truckin’ on as various government entities think about the Google.

A blog post by David Lawsky here made a comment I found interesting. He wrote:

“The sense that I [a Googler working in DC] get is that their [Halliburton’s] corporate values may be a little different from Google’s, on some things.”

A company for which i worked became part of Halliburton. I wonder if these writers and Googlers have first hand experience that lets them make a definitive statement? From my goose pond choked with mine drainage run off I see some similarities “on some things” too. But the view from rural Kentucky is certainly not as crisp as those who are close to the firms mentioned in these write ups.
