In a sign that the practice of mindfulness is entering the mainstream, Thay has been invited later this month to run a full day's training session at Google's main campus in California.
...
He plans to discuss with them how they can develop a deep understanding of the inter-connectedness and inter-dependence of all life and offer practical tools to better integrate mindfulness in their daily work, in the products they design, and in the vision they have for how technology can change the world.
...
He believes that for business to play a role in slowing the runaway train of capitalism, corporate leaders need to recognise they have made a fundamental error in their narrow-minded belief that profit on its own equates to success. [theguardian.com...]


The bold text above is mine. I wonder if Thay made any progress in that field with them. They certainly need to understand that the Internet does not belong to them to suck the life right out of it as they please because that's sure how it has felt in recent years.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that inviting Thay to speak to them was with good intentions. Time will tell.
