Posted:If anyone still needed convincing as to whether we can trust google...
This is an amazing project. It's another example of google using their position to benefit the people of the world. I'm sure some people will see it as a cynical marketting ploy but I'm pretty convinced that its not.

OK, so that's 50 years from now. Shall we hate them now for what they might become?
I might murder someone one day. Shall we execute me now because it's possible?
Look, they're not perfect. They're gonna goof up. They're gonna make mistakes. They're gonna make a bad decision here and there. But as far as corporations go, I'll stand behind this one. At least for now.
They actually tried to not incorporate and find another way around it, but unfortunately because they don't really produce a tangible product, such models as a cooperative weren't available to them. So their only practical recourse was to incorporate.
It's sad to see people so prejudiced against any successful corporation that they assume that it must be evil just because it's a successful corporation.
