Also on my how-has-google-not-realized-it-is-broken list is the fact that pressing play on any "station" in Google Music currently just takes you to a blank page.

Having been a Googler, I'm often on the receiving end of general ridicule about Google's tendency toward extreme NIH syndrome. But as I sit here having waited for over an hour for my commits to show up in our Github Enterprise instance and having passed the time trying to figure out how to simply file a ticket in our Jira instance, I'm beginning to wonder what's so bad about NIH.

Pretty cool to see +Web Components in the wild as part of the new Google Music design.

Yeah. I really want to know what the deal is with Inbox breaking when you leave it open too long.

I was having a discussion about privacy today and when I have a discussion about privacy, I like to search arbitrarily on DuckDuckGo. Today I was kind of amazed to see that for the query "kellegous" Dreamhost is running an ad with my (most empty) forums profile from like 2004. Why? It feels kind of creepy to have a company posting ads to your profile.

It's because using such words is very very cheap and gives very directed advertising.

One person trying to get a job in the ad world bought ad words on the names of executives in the ad company he wanted to be in - and struck gold for an outlay of pennies when one googled himself.

Full, and funded, story!
We're feeling unusually festive at FullStory today! (We're maybe a bit over-caffeinated, but there's nothing unusual about that.) We've just completed a major round of funding led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), with participation from Google Ventures and tech VC-veteran Tom Noonan.

Watching Google IO presentation about making Google IO site using the Google IO site that is suffering from chrome rendering bugs. (You are unable to close the "Live Widget" on the right because the last frame of the circular reveal never renders. There is a close button hiding in there, you can use the devtools to reveal it).

Yea that seems right to me. We changed the widget to be responsive later on and didn't test enough on larger screens. I'll file a bug!

Filed Under: Internal warnings that need to be public.

"Sourceforge.net is bundling adware/malware/crapware with the installers of a number of open source applications - this is not cool to say the least. We wanted to make you all aware that this is happening and continuing to increase in prevalence. As such, Please don't download apps from Sourceforge.net as it is almost certainly not the true source of the project you are looking to get."

I'm trying to understand what tools means here, but I certainly don't agree with PPK if he is saying that the web would be a lot faster if we just got back to including those 30 inline script tags on our pages to avoid "tools".

Can we all agree to stop writing bullshit philosophical pieces about the web that fail to speak in concrete terms about the actual constraints that both users and developers have!?

Seems Facebook (which I don't use) has put out a new product that allows iPhone users (and only them) to read news articles without leaving Facebook. John Gruber wrote an as-always thought-provoking article about why this could be bad for the web as a whole. Although I don't agree that the web ...

No. Demonstrably, repeatedly, we cannot agree to that.

No one can have nice things. :(

Introduction
I'm Design + Engineering. I used to work for Google on Chrome & WebKit. I'm responsible for the existence of Speed Tracer and I was an early member of the GWT team. Before that I studied under John Maeda at the MIT Media Lab. And before that, I co-founded Connexxia which was kind of marketing through social networks before that was a good idea. I'm also a triathlete obsessed with swimming, cycling and running. More at http://kellegous.com/about.

Alas, if you didn't make it to the Indian Pass Raw Bar in its prime you missed the magic. This place was a local treasure of fantastic food and the ultimate in laid back coastal atmosphere. Fantastic steamed and baked oysters coupled with serve yourself beer from the cooler, I planned trips around returning to this place because each experience was memorable. This year, though, the magic is gone. The popularity has destroyed this gem of the forgotten coast. First, we had trouble getting seated. There were a number of people waiting, but that wasn't the issue here. Either due to lack of organization or favors for locals, we were repeatedly moved down the seating list. It took an uncomfortable discussion to bring this to someone's attention to finally get us a seat. The food was as wonderful as it ever has been. Strangely, though, our order never fully made it to the table. After some time we asked only to find out they were out of oysters and hadn't bothered to tell us that our food wouldn't be coming. The super casual checkout, which was once charming now became the subject of suspicion as we spent the trip home discussing whether they had charged us for the food we never received. The consensus was that they must have, given the price. We left hungry and focused on the disappointment. I have never left the Indian Pass Raw Bar focused on anything but the positive experience we had just had. Oh but if you had been to this place in its prime. It was a treasure and sadly it will be missed dearly. If you missed, I'm sorry but there is no more magic here.
