studebaker hoch: Where is the link where we can be removed from Google?
Cybernetic: $1 billion for a "fleet" of satellites seems pretty optimistic. Launches are expensive.
Nogrhi: dittybopper: [aviationblog.dallasnews.com image 400x300]For the win!
studebaker hoch: Google can search the web and find all the results that exist.Then compare it to a list of people who have opted out.Like a telephone "do not call list", we could have a national registry of people who don't want their names returned on search results.Not hard to do.
studebaker hoch: If we can implement a national "do not call" list, why can't we have a "do not search" list?If someone opts out, their search results would still be available, but only to someone with a search warrant for that person.Do you really want Google returning your information to any creep who wants it?
studebaker hoch: DiscordulatorGoogle can figure out who I am unambigiously by geographic location, email address and more. That's all they do.
studebaker hoch: So I should then be able to click all those links that DO apply to me and say "don't list those". I could prove they pertain to me only, and that I'm not some random internet guy.My point being that Google could do this if they wanted to.I should be able to claim my own search results, right? And if there's question, prove it to them somehow, say by showing (google only) a utility bill, pay stub etc that proves that yes, that's really me.Or google could say "We just can't isolate your data in a result set, it's impossible" while going back to working on their self-driving cars.
MindStalker: You know, I bet the first time this happens it will be a Wall Street trading bot. It starts to make crazy bets, you go to shut it down and it destroys the market and holds the worlds stocks as hostage to keep itself alive.
