"Google's Selfish Ledger Is an Unsettling Vision of Silicon Valley
Social Engineering"


        Google has built a multibillion-dollar business out of knowing
        everything about its users. Now, a video produced within
        Google and obtained by The Verge offers a stunningly ambitious
        and unsettling look at how some at the company envision using
        that information in the future.  The video was made in late
        2016 by Nick Foster, the head of design at X (formerly Google
        X), and shared internally within Google. It imagines a future
        of total data collection, where Google helps nudge users into
        alignment with their goals, custom-prints personalized devices
        to collect more data, and even guides the behavior of entire
        populations to solve global problems like poverty and disease.
