» Misaligned interests

James Fallows on Google Keep:

Until I know a reason that it’s in Google’s long-term interest to keep Keep going, I’m not going to invest time in it or lodge info there.

And then often when you find out why it’s in Google’s interest to keep something going, you realize it’s not in your interest to use it.

Routine disclosure: many of my friends work at Google, as does one of my sons.
