Who Will Watch the Google?

Sample illustration of life at Google remote Opt Out Village. All former users will be rehabilitated.

There's a new crowd-sourced site dedicated to keeping track of all of Google's privacy, anti-trust, bias concerns--it's called Google Monitor.It aggregates all sorts of interesting Google news, like this WSJ story about the search giant using house ads to advertise its China policy. (Unmentioned on the site is Google's odd sensitivity about Michelle Obama.) But maybe the best thing Google Monitor has done so far is dig up this fantastic Onion story about Google's new opt-out scheme for people who don't like their privacy policy--a remote, 22-acre Opt Out Village. Pure gold.
