I liked your artifact, that was such a cool idea to have so many people from all over to do the same search and see if it changed from the location. I also didn’t know that there was no Google in China. An interesting point about considering if technology is further entrenching the social divide.
I agree with you about the whole “giving the customer what he doesn’t yet know he wants.” It’s such a bizarre concept but then very in line with all advertizement. Stores put charcoal next to grills, milk next to bread, jeans next to t-shirts, to insight the idea of what you are going to want next.
I also loved your idea about how its “googles” as it is how we look through it and see the world.
Really well done!
