I swear every day I become more creeped out because of people and their use of the internet, more specifically their use of Google search. I love Google search just as much as the next person, but do I have time to sit and Google other people, to find out about their comings & goings? Fuck no. Do I have time to Google people’s internet nom de plume’s just to see what their Google ranking is? Hell no. Do I have time to sit around and Google the government names of people/associates/coworkers or people who I wish would cease breathing? I’d rather watch paint dry.
What’s scary is that there are people who do the above things. What’s even scarier is that they have the time to sit and do it. You’d think they’d have better things to do with their time. Google search is a tool used to gain information, not to stalk people and their online/offline activity.
Now with the advent of Google buzz, personal information and connections are even more accessible. If I wanted someone to meet a friend of mine, chances are, I’d introduce them myself. Forget about “Big Brother” watching, it’s more like Big Brother and his whole damn family.
