A BIT OF SANITY amid all the alarmism surrounding Google Buzz and privacy. I believe Google's mistake was to integrate so tightly something very public -- a social network -- with something very private -- email. It freaked everybody out, as if private stuff was going to leak out any moment. It seems that Google is about to do what it should have done in the first place: offer users the option of using Buzz within Gmail or separately.
