Google Web History

Anil Dash has posted some interesting thoughts on Google Web History (released today).

Dash points out the technical merits of the project:

From a technical standpoint, Google Web History is one of those tools that’s so well-executed it seems simple, or even obvious, the first time you see it. There’s a basic timeline of your search history, with the ability to drill into specific search result histories for Google properties like web search, image search, news, Froogle…, Video, and Maps.

More importantly, Dash wonders if perhaps Google has gone too far. I’d agree with him. The idea of one company having so much personal data on a huge number of people is just creepy.
