Why I left Google - JW on Tech

Everyone wants to know why I left and answering individually isn’t scaling so here it is, laid out in its long form. Read a little (I get to the punch line in the 3rd paragraph) or read it all. But a warning in advance: there is no drama here, no tell-all, no former colleagues bashed and nothing more than you couldn’t already surmise from what’s happening in the press these days surrounding Google and its attitudes toward user privacy and software developers.

This is simply a more personal telling. It wasn’t an easy decision to leave Google. The Google I was passionate about was a technology company that empowered its employees to innovate. Technically I suppose Google has always been an advertising company, but for the better part of the last three years, it didn’t feel like one. Under Eric Schmidt ads were always in the background. In such an environment you don’t have to be part of some executive’s inner circle to succeed. Suddenly, 20% meant half-assed. Sacred Economics, le court film à propos du livre.

The same list but with links to extensive treatments for each book is here. 1. On Debt, hierarchy and P2P dynamics Without any doubt, this is the most important book of the year, and not just for the p2p/commons community. Not only is debt the key issue in the present structural crisis, but David Graeber has uncovered how this is a key thread running through human history. Matt Cropp has an interesting quote on the ‘hierarchy’ aspect of debt: “A debt between two individuals thus creates a temporary hierarchical relationship between them, and in societies in which the alienation of relationships pioneered by slavery has been internalized, such debts can then be transfered to, or even originated by, a creditor with no interest at all in the wellbeing of the debtor as long as the debt continues to be serviced. 2. 2b. 3.

The Coming Insurrection « Support the Tarnac 10

This is not the least of its virtues. From those who seek hope above all, it tears away every firm ground. Those who claim to have solutions are contradicted almost immediately. The sphere of political representation has come to a close. The flames of November 2005 still flicker in everyone’s minds. There will be no social solution to the present situation. As an attempted solution, the pressure to ensure that nothing happens, together with police surveillance of the territory, will only intensify. The impasse of the present, everywhere in evidence, is everywhere denied. This book is signed in the name of an imaginary collective. Piero San Giorgio : « Survivre à l’effondrement économique. Accueil » Actualité générale » Piero San Giorgio : « Survivre à l’effondrement économique Interview le 27 septembre 2011 par la radio québecoise « les fils de la liberté » de Piero San Giorgio, l’auteur suisse du manuel pratique « Survivre à l’effondrement économique » prochainement publié par Scriptoblog, édition « le retour aux sources ».

Dans cet entretien Piero San Giorgio expose les raisons pour lesquelles il est convaincu que notre modèle de société devra bientôt subir bien plus qu’une crise, un effondrement majeur (!) Il donne ensuite qq. indications sur la façon dont nous pouvons nous y préparer et nous organiser pour y faire face, récit assez décoiffant ! Ne pas se laisser rebuter au début par l’accent terriblement canadien des animateurs de la radio, Piero San Giorgio est vraiment captivant à écouter, son site est aussi très intéressant à consulter pour quiconque est préoccupé par les menaces de l’avenir..
