Google Here, There, And Everywhere

Taken to its logical extension of providing an interface for every popular service or sector on the Web, Google becomes the omnipresent middleman and a clear and present danger to just about any company that relies on the Internet for commerce. Which, increasingly, is every company in the developed world.

your search info to the Googleplex, I have been thinking about the unique place Google occupies at the center of online culture and commerce.
Not to wax too paranoic, but since we live in a 'Google everywhere' world,
they are collecting an incredible sea of data.
I don't think there has ever been anything like it in history.
Tracking the global clickstream... my goodness.
It surely is worth noticing and maybe even thinking about.

If you're using Adwords and want to track conversions, Google has a new feature that allows you to do this now, but insists you use a little graphic on your "thanks" page to "let users know they're being tracked."
I'm just confused; there's probably a distinction here, but I don't see it. I couldn't really understand their reasoning several months ago (seemed more like an advertising thing to me).

Online tracking is unique, but as 99.9% is anonymous, then it isn't really an invasion of privacy or a big concern IMHO. Unless, of course, you have a static IP Address, never del;ete cookies and regularly give out your name address etc etc.

I wouldn't quite start worrying just yet. Certain experts are actually predicting that Google's search market share will fall over the next couple of years as others, such as MSN, start to gain more custom.
Sure, but at the moment Google knows more about what folks do than any private institution in history (perhaps bested only by Carnivore and Echelon).
I am not worried, but I do feel that this is a noteworthy state of affairs.
