It’s not always just about Google and Facebook. But what happens on their level will actually effect the entire digital infrastructure.

(excerpt from an interview with David Galbraith)

“…The internet is a communication network, it needs people in it. Some companies are trying to replace people with algorithms, but I think it is a ridiculous idea. Google is imposing algorithms on us. Google or Google News have no human intervention. The Google car can drive itself without a human being behind the wheel. That is Google’s weak spot, what they are trying to do is fundamentally against the DNA of the internet.

And that’s the biggest difference between Google and Facebook. They are about people, and they clash frontally with the model of Google. Like all good battles, it will be fought on a fundamental level. It’s really algorythms vs people. The next big war on the internet. …”
