      1. It feels like a lot of services are being concentrated under individual companies (ie. Google!) and I can’t see why they would be any better managed this way. I don’t know all that much either, but I’m leery of most information going through the same conduit



      2. Ah yes. The Google. It’s basically on its way to ruling the world. It already owns the internet. In its most basic answer, these big companies buy out smaller websites where they see profit.
