This is extremely corny. This absolutely kills me. That music, the visuals, the text. Is Peter Woodbridge a tenth grade student who made this for a civics class? Sometimes you people at Adbusters need to wake up and realize how mawkish some of the crap you post is. The message is important sure.. But this is hilarious.

i think that the web's assimilation of the language and politics of market forces is one of the most dangerous things affecting us today. the web promised us so much in terms of free, and even radical, thought- but it has failed to deliver that. the digital economy bill in the UK for example will effectively thwart the use of the internet for true disruptive innovation. the pirates may be ideologically right but they will always lose.

the web is an important battleground and site of symbolic struggle against oligopolies. the issue isnt necessarily about data, it isnt about a personal attack on google as such, its about the direction in which the web is heading - one that is corporate, monopolistic, one that entwines us so deeply in consumerist memes that we dont even know our language of dissent is actually a language of co-option.

google has a massive impact on shaping our collective mindset and memory. for this reason we must be careful of how much we come to be reliant and dominated by this technology

Yes, there is probably an important message in there somewhere, but I couldn't find it through the melodrama.

Also I might not have found this poor excuse for a video if it hadn't been for Google.
