First they came for Google Wave, and I didn’t speak out because I was not one of the three people in the solar system who understood how Wave was supposed to work.
Then they came for Google Buzz, and I didn’t speak out because I was too busy laughing.
Then they came for the keyword data that’s passed from Google’s search results to web analytics programs, including Google Analytics, and I kind of did speak out, because showing Keyword “(Not Provided)” is bullshit for organic search when they’re continuing to give all the keyword data to their rubbish advertisers who use paid search. Assholes.
Then they came for Sparrow, and I spoke out (1, 2). This angered me because I paid for Sparrow in the expectation that it would be developed, and all Google wanted was to suck the life out of it so they could use it it for their inferior apps.
Then they came for iGoogle, and I went back to not speaking out because I had a strong preference for Reader instead.
Then they came for Google Reader, and there was no one left to speak out for Reader. Except, I guess, all of the people who are speaking out for it.
Next they’ll come for Google Voice. And that will be the end.
