The Google florist forger fights the internet’s community spirit 

[Cross-posted] Remember when the internet was full of educated people at universities, geeks wanting to help fellow netizens out, and people with high-minded ideals of reaching out to colleagues to make the world better? I suggested in 2007 that those days were long gone. And now, according to the internet-loathing mainstream media, we get people wilfully destroying data that Google freely compiles for the public good.
   How shameful that this alleged manipulator (above left), who is accused of altering the information of her competitors, is in New Zealand.
   There’s no sense of community spirit left in some circles. It’s something we need to change for the next generation.

Note

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
