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.

When I walk into a mall, I'm sure I'm being recorded on all kinds of security cameras. I never gave my consent for that


Most places that use security cameras do have signs posted mentioning that fact though.

but there's no law which says private companies can't record what's happening on their private property (which in this case would be their own website).


Again, the issue is not that the site itself is recording whats happening. There would not be any legal problems with that. The issue is that a third party is recording it and using it without consent from the user. That's where things potentially get a little dicey from a legal standpoint.
