I wish it were as benign as just advertisements. Less benign would be analysis of the information and use it in political (“election”) 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 “free” services, and information will float to you.

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