For many years, Google has touted an upbeat and idealistic motto: “Don’t be evil.”
It came with an equally utopian mission statement about organizing all the world’s information and making it accessible to everyone.
When the Financial Times asked Google CEO Larry Page if his company would need to change that statement in coming years, he responded in the affirmative. “I think we do, probably,” he said. “We’re still trying to work that out.”
Page wants to take Google beyond search and mobile, and use its considerable resources to tackle some of the largest problems facing society as a whole. Want to live longer, in a cheaper and more energy-efficient house, while robots spare you from working? Google is working on projects that could make that sci-fi vision a reality. “We’re trying to figure it out,” he added. “How do we use all these resources… and have a much more positive impact on the world?”
In light of that, what should Google adopt as its new motto? We have some ideas:
“We’ll Be Evil Sometimes… But Only When It Benefits You!”
“We Have Military-Grade Drones. Is Everybody Using Android?”
“Using Your Search History to Build a Better Tomorrow.”
“User-Friendly World Domination.”
