San Jose City Council Greenlights New Google Campus Plan

This afternoon, evening and night there was a public hearing over San Jose selling 10 1/2 acres of property to Google, which would serve as a new company campus. I watched and listened to much of the ten hours of debate, often contentious, complete with protests and arrests, ended in unanimous approval by the council. I'm eager to see how this move could reshape jobs, housing traffic and more in the South Bay over the next few years.

The partnership of +Jeff Dean and +Sanjay Ghemawat is, in a microcosm, the story of Google. Their work has set the course for the company, and in many ways, the entire tech industry. This story in the New Yorker is fantastic.

Comments as a Platform, Or Silencing the Trolls

"Web content has typically divided into three camps - those who create, those who react, and those who just watch. The lurkers, if you will. From the very earliest days of blogging, those first posts awaited the inevitable comments, and, given a clear revenue stream, you would see early participants like Fred Wilson say that "comments are how bloggers get paid."

If you can trust your commenters enough to give them a voice, by all means, amplify their voices. But when they have shown you time and again that they cannot be trusted, turn it off."

How 23 Year Old Me Got a Job at a Stealth Company With a Fake Website

"My first two years in Silicon Valley were spent in Burlingame at a dotcom that hoped to revolutionize telecommunicatons online - with Web meetings, conference calls and even faxing from the Web. They had great services, but not enough customers, and eventually ran out of funding in early 2001, jettisoning marketing, sales and business development folks, before selling for scraps to Oracle."

A Google+ Highlight from 2012: Hosting +Daria Musk

From January 2012, I was able to host Daria, and hear her excellent song about Google+! +1 Me! The song still holds up. +gopi Kallayil and I, and many others appreciated her spirit.

It's come time for me to share it with everyone.
