Video: Does Google Own Us?
Mar 10, 2010 at 9:33am ET by Barry Schwartz

Here is a short but very well-done video on how much Google knows about us, possibly implying that Google owns their users. Clearly, this topic is not new, but the video was really well done.

The video is from the show “Hungry Beast” that airs in Australia on the ABC, 9PM Wednesdays. For more information on the show, see

Hat tip to Digital Inspiration and Andrew Vande Moere.

Barry Schwartz is Search Engine Land's News Editor and owns RustyBrick, a NY based web consulting firm. He also runs Search Engine Roundtable, a popular search blog on very advanced SEM topics. Barry's personal blog is named Cartoon Barry and he can be followed on Twitter here.

    People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I
    don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world
    are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want,
    and, if they can't find them, make them.

    -- George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish Playwright
