https://about.google/
Our mission is to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Curtis Yarvin, Urbit founder:
Google’s mission statement is ‘organize the world’s information.’ What that assumes is that the world’s information is a shitshow, a pile of crap, and we need to pay a bunch of people $300,000 a year to go in and sort it out. Our idea is that the world should organize its own information.

It's for this reason that's I've stopped embedding micro data in the HTML I write.

Micro data only serves Google. Not my clients. Not my sites. Just Google.

Every month or so I get an e-mail from a Google bot warning me that my site's micro data is incomplete. Tough. If Google wants to use my content, then Google can pay me.

If Google wants to go back to being a search engine instead of a content thief and aggregator, then I'm on board.
