    Scared? Lol. They've had a database. What do you think happens with all those Gmail accounts, searches through their engine and so on?

    When one is missing a relative, a friend or colleague, the least of one's worries is whether or not Google is maintaining a people's database. The only thing one wants to know is if that other person is OK, and to that extend, Google is providing a service, similar to the old Amateur Radio in its heyday. Other Internet sites are helping as well:

    For the moment, I'll give all these Web sites the benefit of the doubt, for helping Japan & its people during this crisis IMO.
