Siva Vaidhyanathan talked about his book The Googlization of Everything: (And Why We Should Worry) (University of California Press, 2011). In his book Professor Vaidhyanathan contends that Google’s ever-growing prominence as the sole search engine for many Internet users allows the company to decide what is of greatest interest and value on the Web and presents a singular view of what is available to the user. The author argues for changes in the ways that people sort and receive information on-line in the hopes of moving away from what he considers is the blind faith many grant to Google. Siva Vaidhyanathan presented his argument February 25, 2011, at the Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Massachusetts. close
