❝ Google blocked a privacy push at the main organization that decides how the world wide web works, according to a recent vote that isolated the internet giant from others involved in the process.
The Alphabet Inc. unit was the only member of the World Wide Web Consortium to vote against the measure to expand the power of the organization’s internet privacy group, according to a tally of the results viewed by Bloomberg News. Twenty four organizations voted for the idea in a recent poll.
❝ The W3C, as the group is known, makes decisions by consensus, so Google’s objection was an effective veto.
Golly gee. The folks who tell us they “do no harm” don’t seem to be in any hurry to do some good.
