These pictures of a whiteboard at Google headquarters were taken in 2005, and they reveal at last what the Big G's plans for total world domination really involve.
Apparently these plans were drawn up for the benefit of John Markoff, the celebrated New York Times tech reporter and author of a countercultural history of Silicon Valley called What The Dormouse Said.
Google's master plans include "weather control," "elimination of humanity," and "remake of whole Babylon 5 series." Terminators are also in there, as is "Google goo," a play on "gray goo." Other highlights are "orbital mind control," "cattle mutilations," "Google OS," and "user happiness." Hmmm, which sounds the most scifi to you?
The photos were taken by VC Steve Jurvetson during a visit to the Google campus.
