Isn’t it about time small companies started getting similar rights online to those of individuals? I don’t use Google Analytics much – because I worry about giving my sales data to the very company that changes the cost of my traffic based on a variety of undefined metrics. The same company who’s directors have a moral obligation to maximize the revenue for their shareholders. Not mine.

Granted though, as EM Forster said, “evil happens when good man standy by.” Plus, I am just reading how Talleyrand handed over the Rhineland to Prussia (instead of Saxony and to keep Poland in pieces to head off Russia), insouciant of how this would contribute to the unification of Germany under Bismarck and the Franco-Prussion war which wiped out France in record time. How relevant is that?
