I wish it were as benign as just advertisements. Less benign would be =
analysis of the information and use it in political (=E2=80=9Celection=E2=80=
=9D) play. One can think up even less benign use of everything.

And as some wise man said: you do not need to recruit spies. Just roll =
out =E2=80=9Cfree=E2=80=9D services, and information will float to you.

I=E2=80=99m writing all this realizing that it will end up in huge =
number of gmail accounts. As 80 or 90 % of all email does.
