Profiles – Plaxo, Linkedin and now Google

Google Profiles

Its all over the tech press recently, Google giving users the ability to slightly influence search results on themselves with Google Profiles. Here is mine. But I'm not totally sure this is the best way to solve this problem. For example, my plaxo profile has all the same information and better controls, surely it would be better if Google just picked up on the information and the structure of the plaxo profile page? Further more, what about Linkedin, Facebook, etc? It strikes me there's no need to duplicate everything again. What would be very cool would be if they could copied and become a sort of super aggregator or broker.
