Along with Danny making an appearance of ABC News Nightline tonight, ABC’s World News Tonight offered a look at the company a little while ago. A text version of the story is here. We learn about the corporate culture, etc. but we also here from Larry Page on privacy issues. The video is also now available.
From Larry Page:
“Our company relies on having the trust of our users and using that information for that benefit,” said Page. “That’s a very strong motivation for us. We’re committed to that. If you start to mandate how products are designed, I think that’s a really bad path to follow. I think instead we should have laws that protect the privacy of data, for example, from government requests and other kinds of requests.”
John Battelle is also quoted in the story. He says:
“I think people are both fascinated and terrified, frankly,” said John Battelle, author of “The Search.”
