Of course, Google Base is not without its potential problems. The main one I see is that the data millions of people enter into Google Base may not be as valuable as Google wishes it to be. By which I mean, it’ll attract spammers like flies and even content entered by genuine people may be (ahem) crap. Google could in fact be building the world’s largest database of structured shite.
Early reviews tend to agree with Mr. MacManus.
Although while developing this product, don’t you think Google would have realized it’d be a haven for spammed content and they’d have a plan to how to deal with it?
I know some people think Google might not be so great, but it seems like this would have been something they were aware of beforehand.
Either way, they should probably fix it quick before the buzz is over.
