The Progression of Evil…

Posted January 25, 2007 9:12 pm by

As I mentioned earlier, Google did not start out evil. No, no, no… that’s just what it seems like. But hey, don’t take my word for it. CNet News wrote an article last year aptly titled “Google becomes ‘evil'” (see? I told you!) about the progression of evil as seen through the comic strip Dilbert.

Back in 2004, Dilbert creator, Scott Adams culminated a week long strip with this image of a “Google-ized” Dilbert.

A Google-ized Dilbert
That’s a far cry from the 2006 strips, Adams created involving Google.
(The links to the Dilbert strip no longer work, so you’ll have to settle for the version SEOmoz used in their post.)

Dilbert Fights an Evil Google

Adams may have been just having some good natured fun at the expense of ole’ Larry and Sergey, but I think he hit the proverbial nail on the head. Google has so obviously become what they originally despised, that it’s almost laughable… almost.
