We hope that someday this institution will eclipse Google itself in overall world impact by ambitiously applying innovation and significant resources to the largest of the world’s problems. is the philanthropic wing of Google. Currently the site is quite empty, but in the future it will be a place to find out information about getting grants from Google, and I suppose to find out what non-profit activities Google is up to. The GoogleBlog has more information about current endeavors Google is undertaking, in a post entitled About I like the we-can-change-the-world mentality of Google.



  1. Bullshit!

  2. What exactly do you think is bullshit?

  3. Smells like a tax dodge. I suppose Google has the right intentions. And I am tired of giving Google the benefit of doubt.

  4. And people change the world, not corporations. Or maybe I should stop making sweeping generalizations!

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
