Privacy is overrated

(Watch the video in my previos post)

Questioning Googles commitment to privacy? (See France claims success in Google privacy breach The German privacy paradox « BuzzMachine Privacy, publicness & penises). Google is guaranteed to build itself into your life: car, phone, home pc, house, life…. See: Ford adds ability to sync Google maps directions to Sync

Of course Google was collecting wireless info for Google Maps. Of course, Google’s mission statement (advertised on http://www.google.com/corporate) is

“to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”

Hello!??? The “world’s information” is pretty broad, hey? And if you look at what they’re doing: earth, maps, mail, videos, (and their acquisitions: youtube, etc) you can see they are serious about fulfilling their mission.

Now I am not saying Google is evil. Rather I am saying that privacy is probably an outdated concept and needs to be revisited. See: http://www.buzzmachine.com/

Everything is being rewritten. The media, news, education, religion, business NEED to rewrite their foundational concepts, including banking and privacy. I think privacy should be included in our new charter of rights and protected, but what is privacy? See http://www.cluetrain.com/
