I mentioned this in my earlier post, but it deserves better play. Google's talking with CNET again. Google stopped talking with the news organization in a dispute over whether CNET crossed a privacy bounds in reporting on privacy issues, when it used examples of information about Google CEO Eric Schmidt. More background on the dispute in our Google Not Happy With CNET post and our Google Blacklists News.com forum thread. Schmidt himself spoke with CNET's News.com for its article over today's size announcement. Glad to see that Google has changed its mind over what I and many others felt was a bad policy. You can see the positive reaction flowing in already elsewhere, such as from Dave Winer and Steve Gillmour.
