Google Outs Your Name – No Choice on the matter

We were in the process of writing a summary of this Gizmodo article, about Google+ (Google’s Real Names Policy Is Evil,” by Matt Honan. 12 Aug. 2011), when the computer inexplicably decided to log itself off…anyway, one fears this is the future of the Web – a gradual de-anonomyzing of the user. As Mr. Honan writes: “Google is one of the largest companies in the world, it touches billions of people. Governments regularly subpoena data from it. The things it knows about you matter. A lot.”

(Google+ is the new, ambitious social networking venture from Google; take-two after Buzz! failed to take off.)

Go figure. Google it! , ^]
