|Morozov I 28
Google/Jarvis/Morozov: the definition of Internet values is notoriously difficult. Take someone like the Internet expert Jeff Jarvis, who argues in his first book "What Would Google Do?" (1) that other institutions should copy Google's business philosophy, both for profit and for non-profit purposes. His argumentation is: "The Internet" seems open, public and collaborative. Google seems to be like that as well, and it is thriving. Therefore, its values are openness, publicity and cooperation; these are also Internet values that bring profits and efficiency.
MorozovVsJarvis: This logic is so circular that there is no way for experts like him to be wrong. (See Google/Morozov)
