Google hires Darpa’s Military Director

 

DARPA director exits agency for Google, assumes mysterious role:

DARPA

 

Not even the federal government’s factory of sci-fi dreams can hold off the likes of Google’s recruiters. According to Wired, Regina Dugan, DARPA’s current director, will be moving on from the Department of Defense’s fantastical research arm for an unspecified “senior executive position” with the folks from Mountain View. Dugan’s served in her role for the past three years, winning over the likes of the Pentagon by shifting her agency’s focus from out-there R&D experiments to more practical military applications, while also ruffling a few feathers with her brazen statements. No word was given on when exactly she’ll officially join the search giant’s ranks other than a vague mention of “sometime in the next few weeks.

  1. Ok, Ok, Ok. So she is not a military director, but she was involved with military-like applications with DARPA. Sounds like the Government is trying to gain more access and control over the internet. Google and the Government are basically the same thing now. I could only imagine what crazy tech they will add to google. It won’t be for our protection! lol. Personally I think this slick talking/looking lady is just an agent for the Pentagon. So glad I am out of North America…
