Not Being Evil (Google and Japan)

March 11, 2011

This post isn’t about Java, or food or an interesting quote. It’s about Google honoring its corporate motto of Don’t Be Evil. Not only are they not being evil, but they’ve done a good thing today.

Within hours of the recent earthquake in Japan they’ve set up a Google Crisis Response for the 2011 Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami.The page has alerts and warnings, bulletin boards, transportation information, power outages information, maps (with KML data links so it can be used in other applications) and a Person Finder where people can post information about people they are looking for or people they have information about.

That’s awesome! Kudos to the folks at Google!
