这篇文章是来回应以前分享过的 google 何时衰败。各行各业都在转向 information-first 的框架。Google 正是此中行家。
The world is turning into information, and that information wants to be organized, accessible, and useful. I don’t think Google’s mission needs to change at all. Whether or not they knew it at the time, Google created a manifesto that I believe will prove to be dead on in the context of an economic shift to a information-first paradigm.

The real issue, say Salzman and others, is the industry's desire for lower-wage, more-exploitable guest workers, not a lack of available American staff.
