"Google is now 10 years old. With its mission to organise the world’s information, it has grown from obscurity to become one of the most important companies and brands in the world. But is Google as benevolent as all that, and what would a world constructed in its image look like? Google insider, New York Times columnist and author of Planet Google: How Once Company is Transforming Our Lives Randall Stross comes to the ICA debate Google’s mission, its promise and its dangers with Andrew Keen, Independent columnist and author of the controversial The Cult of the Amateur: How Blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and the rest of today’s user-generated media are killing our culture and economy. Chair: Bill Thompson, journalist and technology critic."
