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.

What utter drivel. Are you seriously complaining that Google don't share their information about you with others? That doesn't make something a "walled garden"; if anything it shows that they have some respect for your privacy.

You're simply insane.

No. I'm complaining about how much information they collect about me without my consent. As I said, they even scan your private email to build an advertising profile about you.

I quote:

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.

Stop pretending you said something you did not say, and stop pretending you didn't say something which you did say.
