There Goes the ‘Netterhood

You know, I like Google’s toys, but their practices frankly scare the heck out of me. First it was the admission that while taking pictures for their Street View feature on Google Maps they “accidentally” recorded data from private Wi-Fi networks, and now we have this little gem from the NLCP:

The White House confirmed that Mr. McLaughlin used his personal Gmail account when discussing White House business, possibly violating federal archiving rules.

From web privacy to Net neutrality to China’s Internet policies, McLaughlin actively engaged Google’s lobbying team and at least one top company official, in at least one case contradicting the Administration’s public stance.

Ever get the feeling that 10^100 Big Brothers are watching you?
