I got a Gmail account today, through a friend who was a beta tester. I haven’t played around with it much yet, but so far it strikes me as very cool. (And no, I’m not publishing my address. I get enough spam on my other accounts.)

But it does make me worry a bit about the Googleization of everything. Will we face a day when most of the Web works like Google, when clean interfaces and functionality and quick responses are the norm?

Wait. That wouldn’t necessarily be such a bad thing, would it.
