Just add some quicksilver to let Google know everything you do on your computer.

Things are moving fast in a Google-rich enviro. Take a look at this interesting Google Tech Talk about the fast-access Quicksikver « interface » : what you see is a clever guy designing a « graphic command line system » that creates shortcuts for almost anything you do on your computer. That’s great because it overpasses most of the software interface in order to streamline your actions. But…

…but, if I wanted to create a fast and light way to « sniff » everything that is done on a computer, I’ll do about the same. By activating Quicksilver, you allow the piece of software to actually process your queries using a simple « grammar » that is quite easy to store and transfer. This grammar actually processes the relevant value of your actions – opening a file, searching, sending a doc, etc… – , knowing what piece of software you are using, when, and what for. It actually delivers new information to Google about the user’s habits in a continuous and phantom way like never before. It also enslaves software makers because a centralized command interface would become a « component » of the online experience that couldn’ be overpassed: users would prefer the easiest path to an action, whatever the specs of the tool may be.

This is pure evil.
