Privacy is Worth Gold

Penelope Trunk wrote a blog post recently about privacy being the new celebrity that could not be better supported in any fashion more than the CEO of Google saying that in the future young people will have to change their names to escape their cyber past. This is not the most frightening thing this man said. I will type that out:

"I actually think most people don't want Google to answer their questions. They want Google to tell them what they should be doing next" (emphasis added)

The article mentions how Google could remind thme to get groceries, but where does it end? WHere does Google stop? This is the talk of Bond supervillains. He doesn't just want Google to tell people what to do, but he thinks people WANT Google to tell them what to do. This is all from the CEO of a company that tries to polish its image with the tag 'don't be evil'.

Blogger is a Google tool... the Google Borg will be out to get me.
