Self-Limiting · I was talk­ing to­day to this re­al­ly smart guy named Jonathan Le­blang who works for A9, and he said “You know, Google’s suc­cess may con­ceal a death warrant.” I said “Huh?” He said “Well, the most use­ful Web pages used to be the ones that ag­gre­gat­ed a bunch of use­ful links, and so peo­ple would point to those and Google would find them. Nowa­days, why would any­one go to the work to put a page like that to­geth­er if you can just re­ly on Google to find stuff?” Hadn’t thought about it that way.
