Hawking FTW:

"A demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."
-- Stephen Hawking, describing Donald Trump

"For a so-called genius, this was an epic fail. If Professor Hawking wants to do some damage, maybe he should try talking in English next time."
-- Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager

"Trump bad man. Real bad man."
-- Stephen Hawking, later that day

Been trying to use #Google Cloud Datalab, I know it is beta, but still the support is less than stellar. Have posted a fairly simple usage question about it's integration with GitHub (as required , the only offered support channel)

Nota for over 24 hrs,, This seems to be quite typical for Google Cloud products,, not a great way to get people off AWS.. Come on!

Seriously between pretty poor docs and lackluster support even for new users (especially for) gives Google's entire cloud offering a bad rep compared to the momentum that AWS already has.. +wesley chun ??
