Just got my ticket for this year’s Google I/O conference in San Francisco. Can’t wait!
And in Google-related news, check out the following post on their relationship with China, having discovered sophisticated attacks on their company to extract information about Chinese human rights activists. Heavy stuff.
“These attacks and the surveillance they have uncovered–combined with the attempts over the past year to further limit free speech on the web–have led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China. We have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn, and so over the next few weeks we will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine within the law, if at all. We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China.”
