A Straightforward Observation About the Google/Twitter Deal

Got this one sentence email in my inbox just now from one of my correspondants:

It just occurred to me to wonder, vis-a-vis Twitter, whether perhaps Google is now a major venture capitalist, insofar as it eagerly buys up tech companies freeing their entrepreneurs to go forth and multiply in additional directions.

That's one way of looking at it, and a refreshing change from the standard criticism that Google is turning into Microsoft: that they are out of good in-house ideas, so they're buying innovation from others.
