Google back in 2005:

There will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages.

Google today:

The company confirmed to the Guardian that it is testing a system with about 30 advertisers in the US in which it shows banner ads for companies including SouthWest Airlines on pages which include them in web search results.

And people wonder why I have zero trust in companies.

A secure and reasonably well paid job is actually a 20th century aberration. It is the exception not the norm throughout human history.

The logical solution is to automate society and pay people a decent basic living allowance regardless of whether they work or not.

The question I have is: all this change might cause social and political unrest, will we have to see a revolution before we get a proper solution ?
