Living On The Edge

Fred Wilson really doesn't care much for Google Base, and gives some of his reasons in A VC: Living On The Edge (the rise of the edge feeders). I really think the first commenter, Al, has some better points.

Google Base is not a data base containing data as much as it is (or has the potential to be) an index pointing to the real data, just like Google itself isn't the internet, it just indexes the internet. With Base, Google has just taken the step of allowing people to make their data available in a properly formatted manner.
