It’s a difficult thing to struggle not to use Google in any aspect of one’s online activities.  As long as one is free to make that choice, and not unduly inconvenienced in one’s effort to make that choice, ok.  But for some folks, participation in the world that Google is creating is not a choice but instead an invasion.  This, I think, may be a useful distinction and an interesting point of departure for wondering how the private (one’s home) becomes public (visible to passers-by), and how the public becomes private (leverage for Google ad dollars).
