'There is an old joke about an engineer, a priest, and a doctor enjoying a round of golf. Ahead of them is a group playing so slowly and inexpertly that in frustration the three ask the greenkeeper for an explanation. “That’s a group of blind firefighters,” they are told. “They lost their sight saving our clubhouse last year, so we let them play for free.”

The priest says, “I will say a prayer for them tonight.”

The doctor says, “Let me ask my ophthalmologist colleagues if anything can be done for them.”

And the engineer says, “Why can’t they play at night?”'

[...]

'You and I would feel safer in a car that met the 301 standard. But the engineer, whose aim is to maximize safety within a series of material constraints, cannot be distracted by how you and I feel. If you are busy empathizing with blind firefighters—if your goal is to treat them with the same consideration you would sighted golfers—how do you get them to consider that everyone might be better off if they played at night? The grievance at the heart of that joke is that we wrongly think of the engineers’ attitude as callous, when to their mind, in their focus on identifying the real problem, they are the opposite of callous.'
To the public, a car either is or isn’t faulty. To an engineer, imperfections and compromises are inevitable. Credit Construction by Stephen Doyle / Photograph by Grant Cornett

I think the writer got a bit overwhelmed by Obama's charisma, but still a good (pretty long) read. +Arne Strawe what do you think?
Obama’s Presidency is on the clock. Hard as it has been to pass legislation, the coming year is a marker, the final interval before the fight for succession becomes politically all-consuming. Credit Photograph by Pari Dukovic.

+Eric Koleda Do you think it would be possible to add this open xml file generator to apps script as a library?
officegen - Node.js module: standalone Office Open XML files (Microsoft Office 2007 and later) generator for Word (docx), PowerPoint (pptx) and Excell (xlsx). The output is a stream.

That library is built for NodeJS, so while it may be possible manually convert it to work with Apps Script, it certainly can't be used as-is.

Start up 101: never trust a business analyst!

'But John Hagen, an analyst with Forrester Research, said all the technology in the world won't generate revenue without good marketing and a business plan.

"Right now there are weak technologies that have great marketing and are making great progress" said Hagen. "The space moves too quickly and at some point, you have to make money."

Hagen said Google is reaping the benefits of the speculative nature of the Internet, which is still in a Wild West stage'
Some of the Net's heaviest hitters are backing the new search engine. But why?

Entgegen anders lautender Gerüchte wurde der Moscow Mule hier nicht erfunden, ist aber wie die meisten anderen hier gemischten Cocktails sehr empfehlenswert!
