“Know then thyself, presume not Google to scan.
The propper study of Mankind is Man.”

(H.C. after Alexander Pope, Essay on Man)

Maybe we should just rewrite the 2nd epistle of Pope’s Essay on Man. Or should I say reread?

It’s not Google which is our God, it’s our desire for knowledge and thus power which really makes Google big.

Google is a great company, but the key to its power is in the hands of each of us.

As with every religion.
