And then Schmidt’s stand-up act: beware billionaires describing technology as culturally neutral. Baloney. There is a strong conservative streak built into the web, which is why so many people lose their jobs for speaking out on websites, and why over 70% of recruiters have opted not to hire candidates based on information found in social networks, like Facebook. This is a steady, corrosive force, and it inexorably excludes edgy lifestyles, and ‘dangerous’ or unpopular political stances from being openly advocated by anyone that needs employment.
