Eric Schmidt Says G+ Is An Identity Service

Eric Schmidt, speaking at the Edinburgh International TV Festival, decided to add to the long list of creepy ass things he has stated in public. eek!

I asked him how Google justifies the policy given that real identities could put people at risk. He replied by saying that G+ was build primarily as an identity service, so fundamentally, it depends on people using their real names if they're going to build future products that leverage that information. Regarding people who are concerned about their safety, he said G+ is completely optional. No one is forcing you to use it.
