Google Polluting Itself

Looks like Google is polluting itself by allowing some search results to be indexed and turned into even more search results (which creates a redundant mirror of web noise). This is usually only the approach of spammers. For example, Ionut found, on which Google indexed over 2 billion search results of the loan/ poker/ casino type. (That particular site might be banned already.)

Google Employee on "Web 2.0"

From an interview at Hot From Silicon Valley with Google’s David Lawee, Principal for Corporate Development:

“I think the Web 2.0 thing, gets one of two reactions, it’s huge, or it’s not. And my point of view is more off the middle. There’s definitely going to be companies that could be the next Google, and I think Google has the humility to know that and to keep an eye on the growth of companies like MySpace, obviously staggering. But there’s 50 more companies that will probably do more, I think we are at a period of time where we have enough broadband, enough users, enough all of the things that were necessary to actually have things transform into opportunities. Everything done in the last 15 years, was building to this point, all of which is not even 1.0, it’s like 0.1.”
