A Conversation With Hal Varian, Chief Economist at Google. A truly fascinating glimpse into the logic behind Google. This talk is a bizarre mix of somewhat interesting and rather boring. I'm ultimately disappointed at the naive, at times crass over-simplistic worldview outlined here - all using smart sounding concepts, of course.

"It used to be gardeners you would have to do now different plants and what characteristic those plants had - well that's gone away to. Now thats low-level jobs. They have been augmented by machines"
