Google Everyone But Me

Who among us hasn’t googled those that we are interested in. Hell, I am googling someone right now. Its quick, its easy and its thorough. Private information? What is that? It’s all public baby.

So, I am sure that it came as a surprise to the folks at Cnet News.com when Google did not like Cnet’s googling one of their founders. Apparently, Cnet was doing a story which aimed to show that privacy doesn’t really exist anymore and that you can find anything about anyone by googling them.

Google did not like that Cnet used one of Google’s founders, Eric Schmidt, as their test subject. So the company has banned Cnet. What does this mean? It means that “it will not speak with Cnet reporters until August 2006.”

Sounds childish to me. The whole story, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.
