Overdue. Always surprised that Stewart didn't grab him. Noah is wise to grab his wisdom and perspective on the American experience. And have you lost a little weight there, B? Looking sharp. Wish I could rock a tie off the top button that well.

After the Brillo and Eddystone debacles, I said Google needed to name a Chief Product Namer. The situation just became more acute.

Don't think so. Unless there is a universal wage more than just minimum to keep commerce flowing. Yes, a good salary paid by the government to everyone.

And you are just thinking inside of your bubble. Pop it up and look outside the US.

Great writers are always great readers. Advice to people who want to be better writers: Read more. Then write a story you're dying to tell!
