Haven't seen this here, yet. Interesting article, even for the non-paranoid critical eye and potential Assange disliker.

That was really good. He absolutely blasts Google there.

It was interesting to see him outline how Schmidt has always been politically connected.

About the only thing he didn't say was that Schmidt (and the like) are part of the shadow government.

Found it very interesting too. Schmidt seems like a fascinating character... Without being paranoid, there's something a bit chilling about the Google empire, its links with the political, etc. The impact on present and future world politics, people rights interpretations, the manipulation of world culture, the modification of individuals ways of perceiving right and wrong, ugly and beautiful, etc. ad infinitum. We're in for a great ride,for the better or worse.
