GOOGLE, ARE YOU MY BIG BROTHER?

Google, DON’T BE EVIL.


This avatar-style animation video was created by our newest author, Jamie Court, and his colleagues at CONSUMER WATCHDOG, to draw attention to Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s lack of regard for our online privacy.

Slack and Taut: Defining a System’s Resilience
