Google….King of the World? Futuregod?

I have long jested that someday Google will rise up, becoming some sort of omni-potent articial intelligence that somehow gets out of control and ends up destroying humanity…no wait, isn’t that a movie plot? All kidding aside, I have said those exact words numerous times before. And no, I am not joking.

Today there is news of more reason to believe this will come to pass. I give you, Google Plague Prediction System. If a person could indeed profess to predict the future, and especially in ways that allow us to save people form death, could not they be a god?
