Google Talk Available Early

Indianwells Re:Now spy on your friends! (897 comments)

I didn't mean to be so snarky. Sorry about that. My point is simply that by becoming a jabber server, and by having a vast indexing engine available to them, it seems a short stop to be able to build a full "profile" of any user in google. It would be different if instead of a privacy policy, there was some standard of encryption on your own personal material that you store up there, but even then, one would have to assume their encryption was safe. I suppose it would be nice to see a jabber based solution not readily indexable by any of the search giants ... It is nice to see them expanding and doing other work, and I don't really have an issue with profiling users in itself.
