To Wave or Not to Wave

  • I'm late to this too and don't know much more than the little I can glean from Google's pages – but my first reaction is that propietary pang I also get from Facebook, Twitter et al – namely, I don't want to do all my communicating with my friends, and whoever else, using someone else's server – in this case Google's. Like you I have my own domain, my own email, and with those I can freely access open internet standards like email and the web entirely on my own terms. I don't want to give all of my words to Google, I don't want Facebook monetizing my friendships, and I don't want to give my every waking thought to Twitter – all of these things are mine, they belong to me, and I have an innate distrust of any corporation who wants to turn them into a commodity. Know what I mean?
