I had a google about a google last google

September 22, 2010

The Google. I cannot think of another company in history that has offered such an array of excellent products that are completely free of charge to the public. Think about it. If you want an image of your house from a satellite, where do you go? Google Earth. If you want to see a picture of the front of the house in which you grew up, where do you go? Google Street View. Want to keep an online calendar of your events? Google Calendar. Share your pictures, blog your thoughts, or build a 3D model of something? Picasa, Blogger, SketchUp. Email, download digitized books, or organize your medical records online? Gmail, Google Books, Google Health. … So are these merely products? Or are they just bait?

Ask yourself these questions and answer candidly.  Who knows more about you – your best friend or your google?  Where do you first go to learn more about that suspicious rash of yours?  Whom do you seek advice from on breaking the spirit of your wild-hearted children?  To whom do you turn when researching if your government is operating GWEN towers to control the emotions and will of the weaker among us?  Looking into the side-effects of that pill you’re on to help with your Ranging Emotion Syndrome, who do you turn to?  Where do you go if you want to find out if someone has already invented phallus-shaped soap?  Where would one logically go to flush out the intersection of Google, the CIA, and Recorded Future?  Where might you soon go to get an instant dossier on your neighbor who doesn’t take his garbage down to the curb the night before pickup, but rolls his heavy cans full of empty vodka bottles down his rocky driveway at 6 am on a fresh autumn morning when everyone’s windows are open?  Das Google!

Protect yourself.  Or someone else will protect you from you.

Where do you go if you want to find out if someone has already invented phallus-shaped soap?  Das Google!

    Protecting yourself isn’t easy. I’d like it best if my surfing habits online belonged to me and know that nothing was being shared, much like the books I check out from the library. It should be private. Truth is our online behavior is being monitored.
