FASTER connex between Japan & the U.S.
Internet users and our customers in Japan today should notice things seem to be moving a bit…FASTER. Today, our FASTER subsea cable between Japan and the U.S. officially entered into service.

Fun facts:
- FASTER has 60Tbps (terabits per second) total capacity — more than any active subsea cable, and 10 million times faster than your cable modem
- This cable is the first of its kind, with multiple colors (100) of light transmitted over various frequencies
- Every ~60km a repeater to re-energizes the light as it travels over 9,000km across the ocean floor

FASTER is one of just a few hundred submarine cables connecting various parts of the world, which collectively form an important backbone that helps run the Internet.

This is particularly exciting news for our GCP customers in the Japan, as we’ll be opening our Google Cloud Platform region in Tokyo later this year. Looking forward to a more reliable, more secure and FASTER public cloud!

My favorite story on these 2, from the archives:

Very proud that Google's Jeff Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat have been elected into the Academy of Arts & Sciences.  MapReduce, GFS, NoSQL, TensorFlow...yep, both art and science :-)

Here's to a great year and even better 2015!
Ten years ago, we started bringing Google’s technology to enterprise IT, but it quickly became more than that. It became about work, and about redefining the way that people do it. Then, with whole cities and schools using Google products to transform the way they work, it became even bigger than our name. To celebrate the holidays, we’re highlighting some of the many 2014 moments that have gotten us to where we are – Google for Work. #googleforwork

This is really neat! Watch 3 authors write a short story in Google Docs together in 1 hour! :-)
Every year on November 1, thousands of people aim to start and finish a 50,000-word novel by 11:59pm on November 30. This fun, seat-of-your pants approach to creative writing is called National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo), and we think it’s pretty awesome. But you know what could make it even more awesome -- doing it together... live!

To celebrate we’ve invited three of our favorite writers to get creative together. They won’t be writing a full novel, but on November 18, they will be collaborating in Google Docs to write a short story in just one hour. You’ll be able to watch the whole thing as they swap sentences in real time. Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with the authors moderated by NaNoWriMo director (and dedicated participant), Grant Faulkner.

Of course, every great story needs a great beginning, and that’s where we need your help! You’ll tell the authors how the story should begin, whether it’s with the classic “Once upon a time…” or something completely random like “Before he came to Tuberville, Roger Pickens had never seen a chicken.”

To participate, send us your opening line ideas (via this form: until November 12th. Then, on November 18, you can tune in to view the winning prompt, and watch as the writers transform that sentence into a one-of-a-kind story, right in front of your eyes.

One prompt, one Doc, one hour. Three talented writers. And the tale unfolds from there...

Meet the collaborating authors 

Edan Lepucki’s debut novel, California, debuted at #3 on the New York Times Bestsellers List and has been the #1 bestseller on the Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle bestseller lists. California was also recently chosen as a Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers selection.

Tope Folarin made his fiction debut in Transition with 'Miracle' in 2012, for which he won the Caine Prize for African Writing in 2013. In 2014 he was named to the Africa39 list of the most promising African writers under 40. Tope currently lives in Washington, D.C. where he is at work on his first novel.

Mike Curato’s debut children's book, Little Elliot, Big City (Henry Holt Books for Young Readers, Macmillan), has received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist. The first in a series of three, Little Elliot, Big City recently won the 2014 Founders Award from the Society of Illustrators, which is given to the most promising new talent in the field of children’s book illustration. Curato lives and works in Brooklyn.
