Google Desktop | P2P in Sheep’s Clothing

[tinfoil cap off]

Stephen Bryant writes “By distributing desktop apps through Lexar USB drives, Google is laying a better foundation for collecting and publishing user data. “

Couldn’t agree more. Google is in the business of “managing information”. And guess what — horror horror — 99% of that information lies on your desktop — and not on some obselete server sitting somewhere in Kansas. Yes, sir, your work computer — with that new 200GB HD — when connected to your office LAN has more data than hundreds of “websites” put together. Though Google claims to index over a billion web pages, it still has no idea about TBs worth of content residing on millions of desktops & laptop machines.

That’s real data. .doc, .ppt. .pdf files. Sitting on your machine.
To manage that information, it has to get an entry to your machine. And that’s not all. It has to seek your permission to provide that index selectively to other users. That’s where p2p comes in.

Google is right on track.
