Alternate Google Usernames

Flashback, with new comments...

I'm terribly afraid that if I experiment around with these new naming systems in Google I'll end up doing something dreadfully wrong that can't be undone.

Hearkening back to my earlier comment (at the target blog), it would be good to have a sense that someone at Google is taking a long-term view of the Google namespace which is looking woefully used-up about now.

Should we not expect from a company that has outperformed the likes of Yahoo and Microsoft in so many areas a simple explanation of where their naming scheme is headed? Some hints to users regarding preserving the privacy of their e-mail addresses while at the same time making web pages and photo albums public. A few examples would go a long way toward explaining this to those of us who haven't yet intuited where they are going with all of this.

This is one area where Google continues to disappoint.
