Do know evil: John Battelle asked the following two questions to Google and in both cases they told him, the answer is “yes”:
“1) “Given a list of search terms, can Google produce a list of people who searched for that term, identified by IP address and/or Google cookie value?” 2) “Given an IP address or Google cookie value, can Google produce a list of the terms searched by the user of that IP address or cookie value?”
Gee. I wonder who’d want that kind of information.
