Interesting possibilities to expand on the point about taking in radically more than they give out. I look forward to seeing more salient thoughts on this...

To me, google is an organization that goes beyond previously concieved boundaries of monopolism, or even capitalism. i can only imagine the indignance of libertarian zealots if something ala google had been set up and run by a state or govt somewhere, but as a private company, what we get is an entity with absolutely no accountability, no transparency, and yet apparently working for "free access to all the world's information" (and maybe with internal links to state or govt entities anyway)... And all is said and done in such neutral and objective language...

Now "information" is starting to extend to the files you keep separate on your local drives, not just content on the interweb. What potential in this? The mind freaks.
