Tim O’Reilly zu ausgesprochenen Bedenken nach der Doubleclick-Übernahme:
people seem to be ignoring far greater risks to our privacy that are in the hands of people far less scrupulous than Google. Our credit card company knows everything we buy – and sells that information to marketers; our phone company knows everyone we call – and sells that information to marketers; our supermarket knows what we buy and how often – and sells that information to marketers.
Meanwhile, here’s Google, which is using the information it collects to build better services that we eagerly consume because they are useful to us, and yet we’re complaining about the risks of how much data they collect!
