  18. 18. “Google is not a search engine. Google is a reputation-management system, and that’s one of the most powerful reasons so many CEOs have become more transparent: Online, your rep is quantifiable, findable, and totally unavoidable. In other words, radical transparency is a double- edged sword, but once you know the new rules, you can use it to control your image in ways you never could before.” Clive Thompson, Wired, March 2007.
