Over the weekend, the blogosphere, journalists and Twitterers were all a-flutter over a Google glitch. It seems for an hour on Saturday morning, every site in the Google results were labeled with "This site may harm your computer."
Yes, that's right. Google made a mistake. And you know what? The earth still rotated on its axis and the apocalypse did not happen (except for a little bit at last night's Superbowl).
My dad had a saying about technology: "Computers are only as smart as the people who run them."
You see, I'm not sure if you're aware, but Google is staffed by imperfect humans and not some advanced robot-human-alien hybrid that can do no wrong, despite their "Do no evil" mantra.
So move along people, there's nothing to see here. At least, not anymore since they quickly fixed that buzz-creating glitch.
