Googlezon: the future of information delivery?

When the owners of some of the most successful technologies of the past few years merge, 2014’s media landscape becomes part of the Google GRID. This is Robin Sloan‘s futurescape…

“Using a new algorithm, Googlezon’s computers construct news stories dynamically, stripping sentences and facts from all content sources and recombining them. The computer writes a news story for every user.”

“[Googlezon’s] ‘Evolving Personalized Information Construct’ is the system by which our sprawling, chaotic mediascape is filtered, ordered and delivered. Everyone contributes now – from blog entries, to phone-cam images, to video reports, to full investigations. Many people get paid too – a tiny cut of Googlezon’s immense advertising revenue, proportional to the popularity of their contributions.”
