Does Google Have Too Much Power?

Interesting article on the steps Google has made in the past few years to make friends in Washington.

Snippet from Ken Auletta’s article in the New Yorker: “In June 2005, Sergey Brin, one of the co-founders of Google, went to Washington D.C. hoping to create a little good will. Google was something of a Washington oddity then. Although it was a multibillion-dollar company, with enormous power, it had no political-action committee, and its Washington office had opened, in 2005, with a staff of one, in suburban Maryland.” That office now numbers thirty people, among them Robert Boorstin, a former speechwriter for President Clinton.
