Google became famous and powerful by indexing the (most of the) Internet so that you and I can effectively search it. However, more and more content is being created behind closed doors that require logins to access. I am not sure if this is good or bad. Of sites that I have bookmarked, the following require me to login (to do what I want):
- Google Reader
- Ubuntu Forums
- Ubuntu Brainstorm
- Project Euler
- KGS Go Server
- ISU MSDNAA
- Several things at ISU
- Several things at UWM
If you include these five, then 74% of my bookmarks require a login.
Since I have posted almost all of my bookmarks anyway, here are the rest of my bookmarks:
In conclusion, a personalized Internet is more difficult to search.
