Giants behaving badly

Stories like the downturn at Metafilter have shed some light on the behavior of Internet giants like Google, Facebook and Amazon. Their enormous impact, combined with their reliance on algorithms to do the work have pointed out the downsides of monopolies.

Bonus: Charles Stross on Amazon.
