Google Maps And A Boy About To Shoot

by | 20th, May 2008

GOOGLE is a company the prides itself on being fun. It’s the corporate executive in the 1990s shorts and location T-shirt.


In the 1980s, Google Man would have worn pastel jackets with the sleeves rolled up.

In the 1970s, he’d have had big hair and talked about “the Man”. 

Google wants to be your friend. It wants to see where you live. Here’s a picture from Google Maps of a boy about to fire a gun in Chicago.

It wants your health records.

Google knows best. Resistance is futile. Just relax and have fun. Are you having fun yet?

What about NOW?!
