But it’s open! Part VI.

In today’s installment I want to draw your attention to a great piece by Bobbie Johnson at GigaOm titled:

This is why Google is losing the future.

It’s a great read, and shows how Google has turned on it’s principles. In this case it’s about

a now-familiar bait-and-switch that Google keeps running on web businesses. First, the search giant offers a little traffic boost to sites that organize data in certain useful ways. Then it turns the game on its head and — without any notice — starts using that structured data to inform its own services. Finally, with a disturbing inevitability, it launches its own competing product that steps in and replace yours.

But it’s totally open, dude.
