Will Google’s stock price be the key to how much of our privacy we can hold on to in the Internet age? With the billions of bytes of personal info gathered without regulation or oversite, a question should be asked: what will stop Google from selling their inventory of data to anyone, should they face a monetary downturn?
Here I am, shooting off my mouth again.
If you could not make it to the New Music Seminar in 2012, you missed my controversial speech Google Bubble, wherein I predicted that Google stock will dive bomb to down to $60 a share and then what that event would mean to the public in general and the music space in particular.
Since then Google stock rose briefly to $768 in October of 2012 only to begin it’s steep slide to$687,–an almost 20% loss in less than six months–where it still sits.
You can not see the the Keynote slides I am referencing on the NMS link because they only had one camera and I guess the camera man felt my face was more important than my groovy deck, so I embedded some of the key slides below.
Please leave comments. We should all be talking about this.
Viddie well, little brother, Viddie well…
