We're all incompetent in their eyes.
not against the Semantic Web. But from Google's point of view, there
are a few things you need to overcome, incompetence being the first,'
Norvig said. Norvig clarified that it was not Berners-Lee or his group
that he was referring to as incompetent, but the general user.
From an article posted on Slashdot, it appears that Google exec Peter Norvig thinks that the general computer user is incompetent. I know there are a few folks on here who think Google is evil incarnate, and while I may not like some of the things they do, I have 3 Gmail addresses because they give me plenty of storgage space and I have nothing to hide so if they decide to keep e-mails I've sent forever more power to them. However, this type of arrogance and apparent disdain for the people who are making Google the most popular search engine in the game really rubs me the wrong way!! Surely someone as intelligent as Norvig thinks he is can come up with a better word to use to describe these people than incompetent... Who knows, maybe I'm just blowing this all out of proportion!
