Hot on the heels of the news about Google’s China censorship comes this bad idea: Google Circles. It shows you what others in your demographic are searching for. This to me seems like the ultimate naive mistake: some techno-weenies throw together a search data mash-up because they can, with no thought about how the data could be misused in the real world. I imagine some White House staffers would be embarrassed if people knew they were searching for WMD.
Maybe once Damien gets there, he can help straighten them out.
