And You Will Have a Window in Your Head…

Google’s announcements at its IO conference this week remind me of my favorite poem

And you will have a window in your head.
Not even your future will be a mystery
any more. Your mind will be punched in a card
and shut away in a little drawer.
When they want you to buy something
they will call you. When they want you
to die for profit they will let you know.

In a world of anticipatory “search”, be like the fox indeed.
