15 years of Google. Remember when their motto was "don't be evil"? #nostalgia

I still have tremendous respect for the company but after a couple of hundred employees, cultural change is axiomatic with growth.

The main thing I'm shocked at is how badly they fumbled Google+ and the identity issues surrounding it. Google+ could have been an amazing tool that increased our respect for Google, instead it ended up like a bad Facebook also-ran.

To some extent the influence of ex-Microsoft execs on Google+ was obvious, but I'd still expect the company that brought us the original Google and the original GMail to not flub it that horrendously.

"Don't be Evil" assumes a constant definition of "evil". Recent findings of NSA and DEA snooping has altered the definition of "evil" in Google's favor.
