Spotify is now running on Google's Cloud: "What really tipped the scales towards Google for us, however, has been our experience with Google’s data platform and tools. Good infrastructure isn’t just about keeping things up and running, it’s about making all of our teams more efficient and more effective, and Google’s data stack does that for us in spades."

Google has been carbon neutral since 2007. Our data centers, the physical infrastructure behind web services used by billions of people, now get 3.5 times the computing power out of the same amount of electricity, as compared to five years ago. We are also the biggest corporate purchaser of renewable power on the planet. Just today at the White House, we pledged to triple those purchases over the next decade. In addition, we're a major climate-minded investor, so far committing more than $2 billion to clean energy projects, from America’s largest wind farm to Africa’s largest solar power plant.
I'm very happy to work for a company that takes the threat of climate change seriously.

Great discussion from +The Economist about the current state of the technology industry in the Bay Area:

As sure as the fog will roll in, at some point San Francisco’s tech economy will slow down. A rise in interest rates could make investors less enthusiastic about technology, because they could earn a higher yield elsewhere. A few well-known unicorns could collapse, killing the prospects of other startups raising funds. A sequence of down rounds across the sector could spook investors.

But the correction will not be like that of 2000. It will not be as indiscriminate, as deep, or as quick… Many firms may be overvalued this time, too, but few are worth nothing.
