Good Morning Mr.Gates how do you like us now?
It seems the good ship Google will now be more able to achieve its goal of indexing/processing all of the information in the world. Sure, it just so happens that much of that is YOUR information and interactions, but thats a trivial minor consideration, right? I mean its just like their unlikely bunk buddy, Microsoft, whom merely wanted to make our lives easier with the proliferation of the PC. Google is looking to help us in our everyday world. Arent they?
So how does one get a hold of all of the information in the world anyways? Simple, just make sure you are as close to, or involved in, as much of the information transfer and processing as possible.
We are the Google resistance is futile
Search index the web and collect user performance data. Even if you are not logged in, there are many ways for Google to track your actions and intentions. Google not only indexes the worlds webformation, but has a plethora of data collection and behavioural targeting opportunities at hand far beyond simply striving for more relevance in search result delivery.
Gmail and Reader obviously your email and news reading activities are a bonanza of end user data that can be associated to understand you better and the aggregate data to better understand larger behavioural trends.
Get Social Not to be left out of the Social Sphere, Google has aspirations of accessing not only personal social interaction, but tapping the business communities as well. We can certainly expect more moves into these areas soon. Of note we have LinkedIn, Orkut, YouTube (plus strategic partnerships such as MySpace) and of course, the OpenSocial platform.
