In honor of Google: Crome…

In honor of Google Chrome moving to open beta, I give you 3 short stories by Cory Doctorow with at least some relationship to Google.

Scroogled:  What would happen if Google turned evil, sold out to the gvt and DHS.

The Things That Make Me Weak and Strange Are Engineered Away: The monestary (Campus) of geeks analyzing data.  The Order can be remarkably reminescent of Google.

When Sysadmins Ruled The Earth:  A little less linked, but still along a similar theme.  EOTWAWKI, and a few sysadmins burried in the bowels of a server room survive.. what happens after?

Also, for a full lenght novel in a slightly different vein, check out Little Brother.  It’s flatout amazing.  It also fed my paranoia something fierce.   I consider it a good thing, most of the time.
