No big deal!
OMG. Now are city council members have even something to say and judge about Google CEOs!. I'll defer instead to the WSJ, rather than the Voice on matters such as these. I think I voted for these people to run our city. I could give a hoot about their opinion regarding anything else.
Hey Observer, you're right, we don't cover Google's business practices as well as the Wall Street Journal. Maybe its not apparent but we have only two reporters (only one was working when this story broke) and one editor. We don't have anyone sitting around doing nothing to take on a story like this when it breaks. We did our best and I think we came up with a rather unique local reaction to this event. Council members were nice enough to provide their perspective, which seemed interesting enough. They think about the state of the city's largest employer about as much as anyone else, save the employees themselves, who hesitate to talk to the press.
Google employees, what do you think of this change? Feel free to use this forum to air your thoughts or concerns.
The search engine is terrible lately. With all their other projects going on, they've let the ball drop on the search engine.
Great, then it would have been better to ask the council members how the change over might affect the city directly or indirectly rather then getting their opinions on what they thought of CEO changes in general, comparisons to Apple and market competitions. Only in the second to last paragraph do you begin to touch upon a relevant tie in to MV, perhaps suggesting that the CEO change is on par with the company's negotiations with the city. I'm more inclined to believe that the city is completely powerless to say nothing but yes to anything Google asks given the revenue stream involved and the pension liabilities the city has incurred.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
