Next to Google, Facebook is just almost benign. Almost.
“Ultimately, search is not just the web but literally all of your information – your email, the things you care about, with your permission – this is personal search, for you and only for you.”
“We can suggest what you should do next, what you care about. Imagine: We know where you are, we know what you like.”
“A near-term future in which you don’t forget anything, because the computer remembers. You’re never lost.”
Yeah, a little scary. What if I want to get lost? Go off the grid, as it were? Remember, this is the same guy that recommended that people change their name if they wanted to escape their online activities.
