    Recently Google announced it will be providing 1Gbps internet:
    http://www.informationweek.com/news/storage/portable/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=222700747

    Recently it's been announced that they will be able to purchase and sell electricity????
    http://mashable.com/2010/02/20/google-energy/

    I know the article says they will not be providing home electricity just yet, but still, the thought's a little crazy.

    So potentially it's looking like all of my bills (internet, electricity, and i wouldnt doubt someday gas) will be controlled by big G.

    Is it time to start worrying about them yet?

    Deregulation of part of the property selling act will allow google to step in there as well. So that's houses, insurance etc

    Well, I recently decided to move my online identities away from Google and Facebook since they all have way too much information about me for me to feel comfortable just going along for the ride. This article has some good info on alternative services -- gizmodo.com/5476386/how-to-escape-from-googles-clutches-once-and-for-all?skyline=true&s=i .

    Globalization is the reason you can eat Pizza without traveling to a remote village in Italy. :)

    An Italian guy once told me, we should live in a world where local products should stay local. Others should not be allowed to copy it. If I wanted to eat pizza, I should go to Italy.
    I was laughing all night. :D

    Haha, funny since the Italians did not invent the concept of pizza (but they did come up with the modern ingredients of pizza.) The Chinese also invented sphagetti, so according to him, Italians will have to go to one of the asian countries for sphagetti.

    And it has been written that from the vast digital sea a great beast shall arise; a beast with 6 letters for its name, each letter permanently sealed on the forehead of its 6 dragon-heads and each dragon commanded a corner of the earth.
