NOTHING TO SEE HERE FOLKS.AGAIN: Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin step down

Last Update: December 03, 2019

Yes folks, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

It is once again just me and crazy talk... Again..

Oh but wait, what I have warned over the past months did happen, sooooo it probably everything is coming up roses for the US tech giants, right?

Regardless of what spin is going to be put on this "abrupt" news or rude awakening for some, there is nothing normal about it, timingwise, procedurewise or otherwise.

To a schmuck like me, this news was not so "abrupt" but I was laughed at when I warned about it coming to pass.

Earlier today I have posted about the upcoming "Black Monday",and the period which follows it. One comment, which is fine, I guess I am the only one living in this reality and no one else is affected by what is happening (SEO, keywords, algos, website rankings, YouTube, etc.). Most professional teams would love to have a record like that if they could predict future outcomes.

Anyway, sorry for the interruption, nothing to see here folks again.

Until it does happen.

Again. The odds are phenomenal and the hits will keep on coming,

But who cares really, right?

Time to get back to skipping along the winding path in Willy Wonka's Adventureland.

A seismic shift, in terms of Google and the internet, the coming 18 months will be very interesting.

Alex, thank you kindly.

You have captured the so called "abrupt" departure in the proper terms.

Thank you for your reply.

I totally get you about the "ostrich posture". Many possible futures are tough to contemplate, let alone accept.

Kinda like, let's just cross the bridge when we get there, shall we?

Meanwhile, and until the music stops, let the dancing continue and keep the champagne flowing while we're at it.

Yes, I'll look up your mentioned previous articles/posts. I'm sure they're eye-openers.

P.S. Haven't heard about Black Monday. Will "Google" ;)

Cryptic. But intriguing. Most interesting. Do elaborate when you can? At some point we have to care. Thank you.

Thanks for taking the time to read and to comment,

There is nothing cryptic it is all out there for all to see and to read.

The problem is most people's mindset, impervious to big things and absorbed by little things.

They can tell you who fell on Dancing With The Stars or who divorced and who cheated on who in Hollywood with great detail but never read SEC filings, insider sales of large blocks of company stock, court filings, regulatory agencies' filings, etc.

Should/can/does everyone have the time to do so? NO.

But ignoring on purpose such critical info, when posted here or elsewhere, it is not a recipe for success. Being intentionally blind on a platform which relies so very heavily on US media tech giants, primarily Google, is hard to fathom.

If you have the time, please glance at my 3 to 6 months ago posts on the same subject.

No crystal ball here. Just focus on things that matter and can affect pretty much the world.

Anyway, looking forward to what "Black Monday" and beyond will bring.

Not that anyone cares, but, we all need to prepare, With basic essentials.

We now return back to the scene in the ballroom of the Titanic where the good times just keep on rolling.



PS: I wonder about Mark Zuckerberg's "exit strategy" with all of the "exits" already in the rearview mirror. Future proves past.

Slipped my mind. Now I recall what you're referring to. About Black Monday.

Thank you again.

Massive "Black Swan" event(s) for many is/are coming.

Please prepare accordingly. And if you care, wake up your neighbors too. There is no monopoly on reality. It affects us all.

It is better TO HAVE and NOT TO NEED than TO NEED and NOT TO HAVE.

I will give you a little bit more context for what "Black Monday" and beyond is about.

For foundational purposes, please first read my other post from yesterday on "Black Monday" and specifically what I have said about the readings and Gospel for Sunday, December 8, 2019 (I have provided the specific passages so that anyone can read and understand in full context not to sway anyone to any religion or belief).

As any event(s) of such magnitude, "Black Monday" and beyond has many moving parts, which I cannot cover here, however, I will point out one major one: Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption, issued on December 21, 2017 (there are many other EOs related to it, but this is the centerpiece one). Take a minute to find it and read it. Do not zero in too much rather take the 40,000 feet view. Then you may see what others will see an an unforseen "Black Swan" event of major proportions.

Back to Google for a minute and, I am not sure if it is: 1) willful disregard of reality, 2) self-induced ignorance, or 3) selective memory, however, not many seem to remember or to know who Eric Schmidt was (former Google CEO until 2015 and subsequent Alphabet Inc. CEO until 2017) and why he too "departed" abruptly. But hey, when certain TV shows and gossip take up so much of our attention, why worry about such pesky minor questions?

Now, without attempting to launch a spoiler alert on "Black Monday" and beyond, a good "redacted" version of that its going to be like in its wake, is a brief quote from the Law Abiding Citizen series (the PG-13 version of it):

Clyde Shelton:
"I'm gonna pull the whole thing down. I'm gonna bring the whole ... diseased, corrupt temple down on your head. It's gonna be biblical."

Please be prepared.

The ostrich approach is not a winning strategy....Ever.
