Defending Google, the video

Here’s video of my presentation at the NPR Intelligence Squared debate on whether Google violates its “don’t be evil” motto:

I am responding to Siva Vaidhyanathan’s inspired recitation of Google’s execution of the seven deadly sins; I answered with eight virtues. More videos are here. Here’s a transcript. The audio will be up soon.

Saul Hansell of the Times Bits Blog covered the debate and then followed up with Google CEO Eric Schmidt making the point I made in the start of my talk, explaining the don’t-be-evil vow to the editorial board of The New York Times (you’re welcome from that straight line). Schmidt said: “‘Don’t be evil’ is an invitation to debate. It means we will fight over what it means.”
