Google's new search is creepy
By Dave Winer on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 7:24 PM.

A picture named hamsterCage3.jpgI really don't like the way Google search is going#

It's becoming more and more laden with strategy taxes.  #

It's being designed more and more for their competitors, rather than for their users (us) or their customers (the advertisers).  #

Meanwhile Twitter is becoming filled with stuff I didn't ask for. Like the frog in the slowly boiling water, you hardly notice it, until one day you're looking for your own tweets, and find they're even more clicks away than they were before. #

Hey I don't think they should change anything, but we should all be aware that if we want to use the Internet for more effective communication, these guys are giivng us an Internet that's less effective.  #

Because you and I aren't what they are about. #
