The Online Identity Program Is Coming Through The Backdoor
(ACTIVE POLITIC) Google Chairman Eric Schmidt just said the reason google+ is being so strict about pseudonyms is because the company intends to be an ‘identity service’. The intrusive online identity program that Obama wanted to require everyone to have, the one that American’s didn’t want; Google wants to force that on to people. What’s interesting is this is the opposite of privacy. Google intends to launch other products and services that only google+ users can access, which will require verified identities, perhaps things such as online purchases. They hope to become the standard, making it difficult to avoid having a google+ account.
