“sharing is broken on the web”

A bit of a digression but I was struck by the phrase “sharing is broken on the web” in James Whittaker’s blog post about why he left Google. He was describing the internal declaration within Google which led to their Google+ strategy, what I found telling about it other than the language was the binary attitude it suggests. Something is either broken or not broken. Google can fix broken things by applying superior intelligence and resource.

Read the whole post, it’s interesting and all the more credible for not being a score-settling rant.
