The Guardian has a nice piece by Oliver Burkeman asking about what this ubiquitous mapping of our lives actually means.

Primarily the question seems to be not one of privacy, but one of perspective. Who controls the information we see? What are the selection processes for that information? Is a world mapped by Google Inc. different in significant ways by one mapped by Microsoft Inc. or Apple Inc.?
