Minimalism is not a viable intellectual strategy

Minimalism cannot be a long-term strategy, but it makes an excellent short-term tactic.

Something to think about - can minimalism be a good long-term strategy?

Ageism by Google?

Teach Parents Tech

Every December, millions of tech-savvy young people descend on their homes only to arrive to a long list of tech support issues that their parents need help with. A few of us at Google thought there had to be a better way that would save us all a few hours each December...

Mom and Dad aren't necessarily as dumb as implied in this odd (and somewhat offensive) marketing approach by Google – in many cases, they're the more tech-savvy ones in the family – a little out of touch, in my humble opinion!

Is your data safe? (2)

  • Official Google Blog: A new approach to China

    Like many other well-known organizations, we face cyber attacks of varying degrees on a regular basis. In mid-December, we detected a highly sophisticated and targeted attack on our corporate infrastructure originating from China that resulted in the theft of intellectual property from Google.

  • Official Google Enterprise Blog: Keeping your data safe

    This attack may understandably raise some questions, so we wanted to take this opportunity to share some additional information and assure you that Google is introducing additional security measures to help ensure the safety of your data.

  • Google's half-truths and a plea for perspective

    Coordinated enough to get at GMail's internal data store, if only the one with e-mail headers. If that doesn't scare you, it should. What Google does with their .cn site is relatively minor news.
