Google is at the top of its game at I/O, but its biggest challenge is hubris – and that customers will begin to fear its power

Hi David. All the resemblance to my father is in my nearly boundless energy and my Picarsic work ethic.

I'm also tall and thin like him. My mom is short and a little plump -- but don't tell her I said that :)

Hubris.  There's a great lesson in the Ron Johnson, JC Penney story. Smart man. Capable exec. But high-volume confidence in his own ideas blocked him from hearing the realities of JC Penney's market. He would have been better off starting something entirely new. A good read.

Story
Tagline
life-sentenced journalist, always-in-beta marketer, perennially in college Communications VP
Introduction
I'm a life-sentenced journalist, a perennial professor, a media inventor (to quote my amazing former Poynter student, Robin Sloan) and an accidental university administrator.

My current job lets me do all those things at once -- working with an incredibly smart and nimble tribe of beta-courageous folks http://universityrelations.wvu.edu/

I spent 10 glorious summers co-directing the Poynter Summer News Writing and Reporting Fellowships with my brilliant colleague, Chip Scanlan.

I'm also a wife, mother and an only child, blessed with a huge family of friends.
