Happy Birthday, Google!
Ten years ago tomorrow (September 15, 1997), two young men by the names of Larry Page and Sergey Brin registered the domain name google.com. Today, Google is a giant of the online community, and is reputedly getting ready to break into the mobile phone market. Google itself is one of the most sophisticated software systems in existence (particularly of those accessible to millions of people worldwide), and has undoubtedly changed the way we use the internet--not to mention the rest of the way we live. My friend Eripsa does a lot of philosophical work with Google, so I'm going to invite him to post something here for discussion. Let's see if he complies.
