Google, buzz off

Published on:

I only end up using GMail through the web when I can't use my desktop email client, so I was surprised to be greeted the other day by an invitation to test Google Buzz. I had other fish to fry, so I declined. In retrospect, that was a good decision, and here's why: Google Buzz is a privacy nightmare and Google Buzz is not fit for purpose.

I love what Steve Lawson said, as quoted by Suw Charman-Anderson:

There’s a reason why I don’t keep a ‘who I’ve emailed this week’ page going on my blog, and it’s not just cos it would be dull as shit.
