After selling his social bookmarking service del.icio.us to Yahoo, founder Joshua Schachter stuck around until last June. Now the reports are flowing that he has joined Google.

In a phone call Schachter says he hasnít been assigned to a specific project yet and declined even to state who heís working for at the Internet giant, but he did confirm that today was his first day on the job at Google.

I predict that, eventually, many of the Internet entrepreneurs will be recruited by Google, in exchange for a big paycheck. I love Google, but I'm not sure I want them to grow beyond the size of their breeches (if that hasn't already happened).

Google... unstoppable monopoly... take over the world... yada yada yada.

They are getting big though. Monolithic. And I really don't like considering what G could know about me if they chose to. Still, it might turn around rapidly- with a loss of public image and an few innovative startups challenging key business areas, it might all go POOF.

If you're into conspiracies, all those online file backup companies that are coming out of the woodwork, are in actuality funded by the government, in an attempt to compile a massive database containing the population's personal files, in addition to all our emails that are stored online (and they will be used against you, if the time comes). Forget the old-fashioned method of bugging the apartment of a "suspected" enemy of the State (like they did in East-Germany). Nope, this is the new way of doing it; making people surrender their private data voluntarily. Pretty slick ;)

:-P

Sorry ... way off topic!

One day the president of World will be elected by Google, at Google and for Google.

In the UK, there would be many cases where you'd be breaking the law if you were taking on new staff at the same time as showing some existing people the door.
