"I just had a very fun debate/conversation on bloggingheadstv with Ari Schwartz of the Center for Democracy and Technology. The subject was the story Fred Vogelstein and I recently wrote called The Plot to Kill Google, and the particular topic was privacy.In Google Mart information is the infrastructure. Infrastructure needs regulation. What is going to change isthe cultural definition of "privacy."
We began by discussing part of the article's thesis: privacy is going to be a huge debate in the next year, in large part because a group of companies that don't like Google seem it as the best way to go after the search company. If they can paint the Mountain View company as a sprawling snooper, they can weaken it and thus gain leverage in all sorts of other areas."
