Google Public Policy Blog

Tags: ,

Google has given a mouthpiece to its public policy efforts with the launch of a company blog. On its new blog, Google makes its case for net neutrality. I have to admit, I love Google. I'm thankful for what they've done to the search engine, thankful for the great blogspot platform, thankful for gmail! What say others?

Dan Gillmor: Google has launched a Public Policy Blog that is a model of the genre. A principal author is Andrew McLaughlin, the company’s director of public policy and government affairs (and a Berkman Fellow to boot).
This is the kind of thing Google should do to excess, because the its growing clout — and knowledge of what so many people are doing — is making a lot of folks nervous.

Pointblog: Google a ouvert officiellement un blog qui donne sa position en matière de gouvernance, de régulation, et de politique : le Google Public Policy Blog dont la démarche est expliquée par un billet de Andrew McLaughlin, Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs. La démarche se veut ambitieuse puisque McLaughlin dit que ce blog s'adresse aussi aux gouvernements et autres législateurs aussi bien américains qu'étrangers. Une manière comme une autre de répondre à la mode du Google bashing (qui accuse régulèrement Google de tous les maux, de manière plus ou moins précise et justifiée).

Bien que les sujets traités soient plus que stratégiques, le blog est quand même ouvert aux commentaires. On y trouve des billets publiés en interne sur cette thématique de la loi, et de la politique des pouvoirs publics, depuis le mois d'avril de cette année.

What Do We Mean By "Net Neutrality"?

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
