Google balances privacy, reach | CNET News.com

I have a little program called Covenant Eyes that monitors my web browsing and then sends it to a close friend in order to provide some encouragement to stay away from pornography on the internet.

As it turns out, I may just as well have Google monitor my internet use, and my life.
Google balances privacy, reach | CNET News.com: "Google CEO Eric Schmidt doesn't reveal much about himself on his home page.

But spending 30 minutes on the Google search engine lets one discover that Schmidt, 50, was worth an estimated $1.5 billion last year. Earlier this year, he pulled in almost $90 million from sales of Google stock and made at least another $50 million selling shares in the past two months as the stock leaped to more than $300 a share.

He and his wife Wendy live in the affluent town of Atherton, Calif., where, at a $10,000-a-plate political fund-raiser five years ago, presidential candidate Al Gore and his wife Tipper danced as Elton John belted out 'Bennie and the Jets.'

Schmidt has also roamed the desert at the Burning Man art festival in Nevada, and is an avid amateur pilot."
