The Future of Google

Google Maps. Wikipedia. Satellite imagery. We’re immersed up to our nipples in a steam of increasingly personal information sharing and editing. From Wikipedia, where I can literally go to any entry and add the word “fart” in the middle, to Google Earth’s delightful ability to zoom from space into your backyard, nearly worldwide.

Here’s an extremely well put-together video, made two years ago, but distubingly close in some of its predictions. See it here. Enjoy, and report back here for discussion.

Credit for this piece of work goes to Robin Sloan and Matt Thompson, with music by Aaron McLeran.

And check out the betaSuri stream, where I discovered it.

See you soon, back here, where we’ll delve futher into the discussion.
