Google Less Accountable Than Interpol?

In a superficial way, here’s one for the conspiracy theorists and pissed-off privacy advocates: One World Trust placed Google below Interpol – and indeed, at the very bottom of a list – in terms of accountability.

Google Less Accountable Than Interpol? 17 points out of a possible 100 – that’s all the search giant managed to get.  And at this moment, most sane people might start to worry – there’s no telling what could be going on at the Googleplex, right?

Yet a more accurate way of looking at it is that there’s no telling One World Trust what is going on – Google didn’t cooperate with the organization, and got blasted as a result.  The most telling example of this is the way in which Google scored exactly zero points in the “Environmental and Social Impact” category; we all know about the company’s RE<C initiative, its push to get “green” PCs into government buildings, and its solar panel-coated headquarters.

For anyone who would like to further explore the One World Trust’s inaccuracies, John Oates writes, “The whole report, or a summary, is available from here although ironically you will need to register – not very transparent is it?”

Crisis averted, then.  Google may still be creepy, but it probably shouldn’t be compared to an international police organization.
