Wow: "We see people turning onto, and then driving on, the wrong side of the road a lot ... Drivers do very silly things when they realize they’re about to miss their turn ... Routinely see people weaving in and out of their lanes; we’ve spotted people reading books, and even one playing a trumpet."
After 1.7 million miles we’ve learned a lot — not just about our system but how humans drive, too.

From the air, it resembles a thin gray ribbon, stretching almost endlessly as it wends its way through a thicket of factory smokestacks and cheek-by-jowl houses.

Google is opening up one of its most popular cloud-based app-building tools to run on other companies’ computer servers, in part to help developers deal with rules requiring data be stored within national borders.

Story
Tagline
technologist, business leader, music aficionado, and outdoorsman, among other things
Introduction
Krebsbach summarizes himself as a builder: innately curious, he likes to learn, analyze opportunities (often disguised as challenges), and tackle them in order to advance an organization and its people.

As a technologist, John uses a combination of data, tools, and processes to battle his sworn enemy – inefficiency. Despite his love of technology, Krebsbach is not disillusioned: it cannot solve all problems, especially when introducing complexity. John believes technology must be used deliberately, not fashionably.
