Insightful article on "no more *not* being evil" .

Interesting reflections by high-up ex-Googler on what it means to (not) be evil:
+ Lack of government oversight?
+ Lack of moral values?

Also, mentions a horrible example of a Google product for Saudis: "Absher, an application that allows men to track and control the movement of their female family members". Should've been called abhor.
