Keeping Secrets - A simple prescription for keeping Google's records out of government hands. By Tim Wu
But the big news for most Americans shouldn't be that the administration wants yet more confidential records. It should be the revelation that every single search you've ever conducted—ever—is stored on a database, somewhere. Forget e-mail and wiretaps—for many of us, there's probably nothing more embarrassing than the searches we've made over the last decade. Google's campus LCD sounds like it's just fun and games, but when a search can be linked to you (through the IP address recorded by Google), that's a lot less fun. And when, as we're seeing, it can all be demanded by the government, that's no fun at all.
That is Google. Yahoo & Microsoft already surrendered the data to DaBigBro aka US Government.
Have faith? Imagine God. Imagine His GIGANTIC database. Imagine if "what's hidden in the corner will be proclaimed in the rooftop"
... Kyrie eleison. (O Lord, Have Mercy)
