Google: Behind The Edge
Just watched this doco on Google on SBS. Was pretty interesting, as it also brought up a few interesting topics regarding privacy and the storage of personal information by google. I’m still sitting on the fence on that one, as I believe that to some extent we do have a bit of power in our choice of whether or not we use the tools/features provided by Google.
Watching this doco, brought me back to the (good?) old days. It had this montage of search engines etc from ages ago. Any pre-Googlers remember the days of AltaVista. Not to mention Dogpile, MetaCrawler etc…. ahhh the nostalgic memories… (well not quite)…
Either way, I’m still all for vouching that ‘Google is your friend…’
