Dear Google,

I like how you try to anticipate my needs and all that, but last night you lost it.

Google Now is set up to trigger alerts when you are at location X and you need to be at location Y at some time. Well, I'm at a resort that is Big. Humongous. Apparently my phone can't actually tell that I'm at the same place! It looked in my email and said I should be at an all day event, which starts at midnight sharp of course, and beeped at me around 11:45pm that it was time to leave to make it to the conference in time! This woke me up, all the more surprising because Android was set for Do not Disturb mode!

(Facebook messenger also seems to ignore dnd, which is why it never beeps on my phone and I miss messages if I don't notice it vibrate.)

So 2 android bugs... Ignoring do not disturb is the worst. Suggesting it is time to leave for an all day event at midnight is silly but innocuous if it doesn't beep.

+Google now​

I posted this on facebook, and +Matt Welsh  collected some additional info and said he'd submit a bug.  Merci.

I think my phone contacts corrupted my g+ circles a couple of weeks ago. There are a number of people I didn't have in circles just now who I thought used to be. If you got a message that I added you, and thought we were already connected, that would be why.

I'm curious what the rule of thumb is for protecting the confidentiality of an anonymous conference submission. Is it limited to what you put in the paper, or are you expected to "keep it quiet" until a decision is reached? And how quiet?

I kind of figured all that but wondered if there were common rules of thumbs about "dos and donts". I think ACM & USENIX could do a service by providing a FAQ here. (IEEE too if it has conferences with anonymous submission -- I haven't come across any but they must exist). I was particularly curious about the situation in which submitted papers are presented to a large audience including PC members (but as I noted, perhaps that audience would be conflicted already even without the presentation -- unclear).
