sopssa writes “Several sites, including TechCrunch and The Register, are reporting about an email Google’s VP Jonathan Rosenberg sent to employees on Monday about the meaning of open. ‘At Google we believe that open systems win. They lead to more innovation, value, and freedom of choice for consumers, and a vibrant, profitable, and competitive ecosystem for businesses. … Our goal is to keep the Internet open, which promotes choice and competition and keeps users and developers from getting locked in.’ But are we likely to see Google open their search engine, advertising or the famous back-end system? In their words, that would mean Google and other companies would need to work harder and innovate more to keep their users, for everyone’s benefit.”
