Phi Beta Iota: The author was reacting to a very strong negative comment on Google, both the spark and the fire are worth reading.  Our view is unequivocal: Google is evil.  We support Open Everything, but especially Free/Open Source Software (F/OSS), Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), and Open Spectrum.
