+ - Why Google's new privacy principles miss the point-> 1

Submitted by Dada Vinci
Dada Vinci (1222822) writes "Google recently announced five new privacy principles designed to product development at the company. However, many commentators are starting to notice that the list is based on a Web 1.0 view of the world: the privacy principles address only what Google does with the data, not what privacy invasions can be done by others using Google's services and tools. In a Web 2.0 world, is "Privacy 2.0" required?"

Why Google's new privacy principles miss the point

  • From the article:

    We've always operated with these principles in mind. Now, we're just putting them in writing so you have a better understanding of how we think about these issues from a product perspective.

    Only now they are putting them in writing? They didn't have any documents dealing with the issue of privacy?

The wages of sin are high but you get your money's worth.
