Wherefore Art Thou, Serendipity?

Wherefore Art Thou, Serendipity?

Vic Gundotra, on Google+ —

We think long-term, four to five years from now, the system should be putting items in there not just from your friends, but things that Google knows you should be seeing.

Ugh.

Turning the web into a cruise ship. You have dinner with the same friendly couple from Iowa or Nebraska or North Dakota each night. Your excursions at ports of call are carefully planned and sanitized, your consumption conspicuous. The company knows what you should be seeing and what you shouldn’t be seeing.

No thanks.

I’ll backpack. Walk down alleys. Eat street food. Ignore Yelp.
