Google now is tackling literacy. It’s a brilliant strategy, and of course self-serving. I’m not sure how many illiterate or barely literate people there are, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s roughly half the world’s population – let’s say it’s 3 billion. Those are 3 billion people who can’t use Google.
Okay, we don’t need to be quite so cynical. Once again, Google’s not just serving as an industry leader but an industry role model.
