The phone is the equivalent of the web application and the mobile apps you have on your home screen(s) are the features. ... more than half of Twitter's ad revenue is coming from mobile.
If you look at any of the top web properties on comScore, Quantcast, Alexa or any other third party reporting service you will see that they all have been fairly flat over the first half of the year. ...

First, and arguably most importantly, Google drives behavior through incentives. Engineers working on important projects are, on average, rewarded more than those on less-important projects. You can choose to work on a far-fetched research-y kind of project that may never be practical to anyone, but the work will have to be a reward unto itself. If it turns out you were right and everyone else was wrong (the startup's dream), and your little project turns out to be tremendously impactful, then you'll be rewarded for it. Guaranteed.

I remember being forwarded this article several years ago. It sounds great! Democratic and fun. Google, of course, can get away with this because of scale. They can throw fistfulls of money at self-directed teams to do whatever until it fails completely or pays off big. This is the Venture Capital model.

And it's interesting to note that Google has stopped this practice. Around the time G+ was released, there was a reorg that saw a lot of the product teams consolidated into a centralized control structure focused on product development (G+ development, as it happens). This manifested itself as a long list of beta programs either cancelling or being folded into G+.

Google has grown up.

You must see this one! Immaculate and move in ready in Cherry Creek Schools! New Exterior paint, New Roof, New granite in the kitchen with stainless appliances, newer carpet and hardwood flooring...there is nothing to do here! On a quiet corner lot with no neighbor to one side. Soaring vaulted ceilings as you enter and a huge loft/office area above. The full unfinished basement is large, with multiple egress windows and plumbing in place for a bathroom...very easy to make into finished feet! The master bedroom has it own on suite bathroom and walk in closet. 2 additional kids bedrooms upstairs as well. Very functional and open layout. 2 car attached garage...this is a great home in an excellent location within the neighborhood!

I agree fully. We should be following this example.

When do we get started on that refactoring thing?

'Chef' as a configuration management software just crossed my daily reading. I am looking forward to take it for a test drive for my java based enterprise software.

Introduction
As a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft, I am having fun shaping the future of how premium media content is aggregated and delivered to consumers on devices of their choice. Earlier I built and led teams to deliver content management systems to likes of Rolls Royce, Delta Airlines, S&P, Pearson and Carrefour. I started Cruxly to help businesses wade through 1000s of tweets to find user intentions such as buy or like. I have dabbled with how to make Powerpoint users more productive by enabling them with real time updates from their colleagues using XMPP.

Inspired by Blue Ocean Strategies, My main focus areas are economics and future of content generation and consumption. 

I am married to Kavita an immunologist and blessed with a 2 smart and beautiful daughters. I am Electronics Engineer by training and hail from New Delhi, India. I bowl medium pace in cricket, play lawn tennis and will watch any sci-fi movie to find what future holds.
