Just a quick Google Buzz observation

A coworker of mine received a buzz on his cell phone, It was a comment by a guy he didn't know. Ok, that's what Google Buzz does. The neat (or scary if it was unintentional) thing is that along with his buzz was his location overlaying Google Maps. And it actually gave the name and address of his apartment complex! It's really neat, but if you read my old blog you may recall my concern about similar fun things in the past that used Twitter and Facebook to allow friends (and others) to track your whereabouts. Great stuff for stalkers. Enjoy your social internet, but be careful what you're letting people know.
