Google's company slogan is "Don't be evil." But as Google navigates the turbulent and uncharted techno-social currents the company has itself in part created, is Google drifting to the dark side? Is Google the new Big Brother? This program recounts the remarkable story of Google, but with a twist. In addition to detailed background on cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the birth and exponential growth of their company, and the heady experience of working at the Googleplex, Should We Be Afraid of Google? scrutinizes Google Web Search and various other initiatives-AdWords, Google Earth, Google Book Search, and more-within the context of how the aggregation and commoditization of data threatens both personal privacy and the free spread of uncensored information around the world. Commentary is provided by David Vise, author of The Google Story; New York Times tech writer John Markoff; Brad Templeton, president of the Electric Frontier Foundation; and many others.
