    Details, details. The "Good for the World" fragment migrated directly to the top of the Drudge Report and hung there for a while, like a semaphore the rest of the media would understand.

    And they did. While technology blogs have been full of anti-Google sentiments for a long time, the mainstreamers are now joining in. A few weeks after the jet story, Boston Globe technology writer Hiawatha Bray opened a piece with the question, "Do you hate Google yet?" Reminding his readers that once upon a time Microsoft was the heroic upstart, Bray then asked, "Is it Google's turn?"

    Last week, USA Today ran an is-Google-bad? story under the headline, "Once-Brotherly Image Turns Big Brotherly."

    It's kind of amazing it took this long for journalists to start turning on Google. After all, the company has its own news operation, one of those information-wants-to-be-free deals that is eating the old media's lunch. Why help them?

    In 2006, watch for media people to stop using those Google e-mail addresses ending in "@gmail.com" that were once so fashionable, a sign that you were plugged in to the cool people. Cool just moved on.


    It was only a matter of time. I shorted this pig on Friday.


    And it couldn't have happened to a nice group of clowns.

  4. I don't think google is going anywhere (yay!) and if it did bill gates would just own even more of our lives.
