Google’s mission used to be “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”.

It still is.

Yet, that’s no longer what Google does.

Google is now in the business of deciding what information is and what it is not, it shapes the way people consume the internet and its content, with a clear bias towards information that is either owned by Google or that companies pay Google to promote.

So much for accessibility and usefulness.

Of course, companies change as they grow. But should we trust Google to offer us the type of information we need, at the right time? Probably not.

That’s not what they do anymore.
