Well, this isn’t the finale, but it’s something of a curtain raiser. Those of you who’ve read Searchblog for a while knew this was coming. Google’s got a privacy kerfluffle at the moment, and the reactions are interesting.
The original release from Privacy International (yow, that’s not good).
The Media Story. (ouch, wow, says Average Joe Newsreader, Google sucks).
Danny (the counterintuitive Google defense).
In the end, this is only going to play poorly for Google. Sure, folks like us might read Danny or TC and realize the story has more than one angle. But two or three orders of magnitude more folks will only read the Media Story.
Google, get out in front of this one….
