It funny how so many people don't understand the mechanics of websites and search. Privacy is becoming an almost non-stop topic of discussion online. Google just this week was forced to provide IP addresses and access time stamps to the Brazilian government to assist in legal issues. AOL recently published the search records of 600,000 AOL users and within 2 days a New York Times reporter was able to identify a customer just by her search patterns. And perhaps my favorite example of privacy failure is the ability of Google or any search engine to help you find confidential documents online. Try this search and see what comes up: "Confidential do not distribute". Here's a note for the 61,000 websites that have exposed documents........just because you have it on the corporate web server doesn't mean its private.
