The RSA plays host to a debate tomorrow 'Is Google getting too powerful?' with a bumper harvest of Reg staff present.

Panelists include policy expert Damian Tambini of the LSE, Becket McGrath, partner at Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge and Tom Hyde of digital marketing agency, Profero. Joining them is our own Andrew Orlowski, who says he'll be trying to steer the debate away from both Google-angst and Google-philia, into something more grown-up. Or so he explained here. The Reg's US Editor and Google expert Cade Metz (who coined the Chocolate Factory tag) is in town, and in attendance.

Unfortunately, antitrust litigant Shivaun Raff of Foundem, originally promised, can't make it.

All regulars welcome, and it's a chance to put your area expertise before a wider non-tech audience. Given that it's free, get there early. Find out more at Spiked, which is hosting the event, here. ®
