Matt Cutts / Tim O'ReillySorry for the animated GIF, I bet it is really annoying. But I wanted to notify you of a chat Matt Cutts, Google's head of search spam, will be involved with today at 11am PT / 2pm ET.

Matt Cutts will be on Tim O'Reilly's Reinventors on Google+ on the topic of Reinvent Regulation. The talk will be about government regulation changes needed today in the world of the internet. Matt Cutts said on Google+ that he will bring his "point of view from working on webspam."

Other speakers include Peter Leyden (the host), Sophie Raseman (U.S. Treasury Department, Director of Smart Disclosure, Office of Consumer Policy), Jason Tan (CEO, Sift Science) and Matt Cutts of Google.

To be reminded about the event, go here.

I'll hopefully be listening for any search related discussion points.

You will be able to watch it live on Google+.

It animates 3 times and then stops because it was too annoying.

Im really interested in this discussion. Personally I would like to see a line drawn in the sand, a black and white if you will. I have personally seen "gray area" crimes that prey on peoples stupidity. Sure taking advantage of people through inflated offers or empty promises is what drives marketing messaging today. The trouble is that main stream media generally has a pause. We all know that is not the case for our cyber world. Its going to be interesting what the cyber police looks like, if nothing else it will start a conversation between the different groups that use the internet. And thats a good thing.

Well it's pretty clear that the USA government does not want to regulate Google. An untamed beast Google is here in the states, and they are pushing their verticals and doing everything within their power to keep users from visiting organic sites in the SERPS. Showing page previews, ratings, images, YouTube videos, off the charts host crowding, etc. are just the beginning of paid search. And with CPC continually going down, you can expect Google to consume more of the organic search results in an effort to please not end users but stock holders.
