Google It really hasn't been Google's week. First the entire internet exploded because of some uninteresting nonsense regarding social networking (really internet?), but today something happened that's actually a bad thing and worth talking about: in Kenya, Google has been caught accessing the databases of a competing business, and offering Google's own product to the people in the database. Google has already apologised, and is currently investigating the matter.

Yes, I was rather crude there, excuse my behaviour.


That's OK. Generally it's always better to attack the ideas rather than the person but we all slip sometimes. I know I do. There is some thing about internet text based discourse (email, commenting etc) that seems to militate against civility.
