It is barbaric to destroy the culture of education, knowledge, and understanding by the willful wholesale destruction of culture in the name of money.

The End of Google Reader is Barbarians Destroying Knowledge

I believe in knowledge, and education, with the dream that by working together, all mankind can share the good life. It is my belief that technology is to help humans collect knowledge, and retrieve knowledge.

By destroying “Google Reader,” they are destroying a culture of learning, the collection of knowledge. They say one thing, and do another; Google is a barbarian at my door.

GOOGLE READER
