Mr. Google vs Mr. Gates

Mr. Google: "Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accesible and available."

Mr. Gates: " Google is great, they are smart people, the press should continue to feed their arrogance as much as possible,’ he says.
‘They say they are going to organise the world’s information. Well, we don’t think that is our job. We think you need to get tools to editors and subject experts to let them organise the world’s information. There is a bit of a philosophy difference here. The only sure winner is the consumer.’ "

There is an interesting difference in the way the two companies approach the concept of delivering information.
