Hi +Aaron Kalair.  This line looked suspicious:

"maxEndTimeNs": "1419867599", 

The maxEndTimeNs is supposed to be specified in nanoseconds, but th e timestamp looks to be in seconds (or maybe millis).  Try adding some zeroes to see if you get better luck :)

I don't know if this person is talking about Google specifically, but I bet they are:

You can make decisions based on whatever input you choose. The success or failure of your project in the market is not really that important; what's important is whether it gets canceled or not, a decision which is at the whim of your boss's boss's boss's boss, who, as your only link to the unpleasantly unpredictable outside world, seems to choose projects quasi-randomly, and certainly without regard to the quality of your contribution.

It's a setup that makes it very easy to describe all your successes (project not canceled) in terms of your team's greatness, and all your failures (project canceled) in terms of other people's capriciousness. End users and profitability, for example, rarely enter into it. This project isn't supposed to be profitable; we benefit whenever people spend more time online.
