from the New York Times
is a nice, reflective piece on how people might be thinking more about how the
searches they are doing might be perceived by others, in the wake of last week’s
US Department Of
Justice demands for search data from Google
. Also be sure to see the
poll Gary
blogged on earlier, where many people assume their searches are private and a
good chunk want them to stay that way, though they are more willing to share in
particular circumstances or in response to subpoenas.
