Google Well, here we have another attempt. After the failure of the overly complicated Google Wave (remember that? It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

Google in general is a walled garden. It's the largest walled garden on the Internet.


That must be why you can't access GMail accounts through IMAP, or Google Talk accounts through Jabber, or Google Calendar through CalDAV... oh wait.

Google wants to collect every possible tidbit of information about you that they can for their own commercial interests. But they aren't going to share it with others. That makes it a walled garden.


Wait, WHAT? You'd prefer if they DID share that information freely?
