Actually really enjoying Buzz at the moment. We’ll see what kinds of legs it has long term, but in the meantime, it’s fun to draw comics about it.
I saw that it showed your location, that’s so weird!
Why do you have a picture of Shaymus in your window?
Meh, the closest people can come to me is that i live in the Twin Cities. I’m not sure where they’d find more detailed info than that as I don’t share my contact info on my profile page.
Great comic. I think Google has a ways to go before Buzz is what it should be. Right now it just feels like noise. Noise that knows where you are.
Sorry to nit pick but the way you said “AYE” is pronounced “I” like the pirates say it should have been “EH”.
Isn’t the info sharing to much?
It’s kind of creepy that other people know where I am, but on the plus side, at least now I know where I am. Now if it could just help me figure out how the hell I got here…
I signed up because it is a stalkers dream tool.
The era of internet anonymity is over. For better or worse. You guys should address this on ELR pros and cons. I’ll be telling my daughter about how you used to go on the internet and nobody even knew who you were and you could get away with most anything. I guess it was only a thinly veiled illusion anyway.
Buzz wont catch on because twitter already exists.
by the way, you have to make it so the via email things are automagically unchecked, I keep forgetting to uncheck them and I get flooded with emails
I was going to try Buzz… got to the final step to make a new account and they wanted to text the activation code to my personal cell phone. Like I want Google to have that.
There has never been such thing as anonymity on the internet. I suppose the difference is now people are more comfortable openly sharing who they are.
As for buzz, I doubt it will become as popular as twitter. Let’s face it, it wasn’t the technophiles that made twitter what it is today. And buzz has some features that are squarely aimed at technophiles.
To be honest, I hope it doesn’t go mainstream… I like having some geek culture left untouched by the mainstream.
this pretty much sums up whats going to happen
