While Facebook makes headlines this week with its cultish secret insignia, its more mature competitor Google consistently opts for the high road, installing for example, 4 new bee hives on its property in Mountain View, CA.
What a perfect match! Google & the bee hive: Both are (or create) systems where the aggregate of individual behaviors produces something otherwise impossible or uninspiring. Honey, in the case of the hive and brilliantly pragmatic tools or groundbreaking systems like Android, in the case of Google.
Me and my little hives tucked away on the edge of America are so grateful! Just think of all the high-profile attention these newest beekeepers will bring to the challenges facing honey bees in our modern world.
