Tech Oligarchs

I have been saying for a long time that Google is to be feared (as well as used; I'm not crazy). There's also a big issue in their stock structure -- multi-class so control can remain concentrated in a few wizards. I feel as if I should have something to say about it, but hey, it's the market and all that.  But what if we are evolving toward a world in which a few goofball geniuses call the shots for the rest of us?  Still, try to fix it and you end up with Congress concocting something just as bad.

Tom, I'm very familiar with the tech industry. Trust me--if tech giants end up ruining your life, it will be through rampant incompetence and confusion, not political ambition and power-lust.
