“Google is something that we often take for granted, but something we disregard even more is the amount of work that it takes to catalogue and index such an inconceivable amount of information.”

Os tentáculos do Facebook

A rede social de Mark Zuckerberg e o Google já formam um duopólio na arte de mapear nossos hábitos. Na semana passada, o Facebook reuniu desenvolvedores de todo o mundo em San Francisco, na Califórnia, para a quinta edição da F8, sua conferência realizada quase todo ano. Estes eventos ainda não são grandes espetáculos midiáticos como os realizados pela Apple no tempo de Steve Jobs vivo, mas os anúncios feitos por lá terão impacto. Um deles, se der certo, pode revolucionar a maneira como nossos smartphones funcionam. O outro potencialmente reforçará o poder do Facebook no duopólio que ele e o Google constroem na internet."

Google X admits it’s working on a space elevator, teleportation, hoverboards | ExtremeTech

Google X admits it’s working on a space elevator, teleportation, hoverboards | ExtremeTech | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Google X, Google's secretive R&D laboratory, has confirmed that it was indeed working on a space elevator -- but sadly had to put the project on the back burner until humanity creates a building material that's strong enough. The same team at Google X has also investigated teleportation and hoverboards -- but again, at least for now, the secret sauce that would unlock the development of these technologies has eluded the Google geniuses.

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 2014 5:58 AM

People who use Google are given the impression that they are interacting with the data out there, but they are actually interacting with Google and its view of the world.

 

"They are prediction engines that constantly refine a theory about who you are and what you are going to do or want next. Together, they create an universe of data for each one of us."

"In a 2010 paper published in the Scientific American journal, Tim Berners-Lee warned about companies developing ever more “closed” products and “data islands”.

"Morville, in his book Search Patterns, says that the first and second results receive 80% of attention. The vertical approach suggests to the user the idea of a single result that fully answers the question, enclosing possibilities and preventing alternative realization."


Or in other words, is our acceptance of what we see in search results eroding our ability (or willingness) to consider alternatives and employ critical thinking?

Lucy Beaton's curator insight, January 16, 2014 8:21 PM

This is alarming.  We, as Teacher Librarians, need to be aware of the ramifications of this.

Mrs. Dilling's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:52 AM

My favorite statement, "we must always be aware and well informed about the intentions of companies, and never stop having multiple options for any service."

 

This article was an eye opener for me. I had never questioned Google before.

Google is so ubiquitous it has reached verb status, and it's what most of us turn to when looking for something online. Monopolies are bad, and…

Escape Google With These 12 Search Engine Alternatives

Escape Google With These 12 Search Engine Alternatives | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Google isn't the only game in town and isn't even the best alternative for many specific search tasks and needs. Here's how to escape Google's grip with Bing, Blekko, BuzzSumo, DuckDuckGo, SocialMention, Quantcast, Topsy, Wolfram|Alpha, and more.


As concerns over the de facto monopoly status of Google continue to grow, I'm reminded of the great philosopher Herman Cain and his infamous line  "blame yourself". As long as "Google" is a generic phrase for Internet search, their dominant position is assured. That said, you can do something about it.There are plenty of Google alternatives and many of these players offer a bettersearch experience, depending on your needs. Here are 12 alternatives to escape your reliance on Google for all things search...
