I read an article entitled “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” by Nicholas Carr. Bluntly, to answer the question, I would say no. But it does seem there is a dark side to Google. The founders of Google, Sergery Brin and Larry Page, have quotes placing their interest in creating an artifical intelligence smarter than humans. Brin even goes so far as to say we would be better off if all the world’s information was attached to our brain. The concept of information as a source of good life is foolish. At the moment, it is also fictional, but most people who think down to Earth, such as author Ray Bradbury, would probably agree the idea is stupid. If that is truly where they plan to take the Google company then we would truly be stupid. The anniversary of Google and the release of Chrome might be a turning point for Google in its effort to change our lives through the use of the net.

On all the world wide web, there is almost no information on urban campus crime. There are some news articles, but nothing truly reliable. Searching google with a variety of tags including “urban, campus, crime, university, college, school, safety, and security,” in a variety of combinations only brings up a variety of bs. There is no study linking urban campus crime to poverty, no study detailing how to decrease urban campus crime, nothing. Even searching Google scholar, and other academic search engines are no better. No one seems to care about the safety of college students in cities.
