I couldn’t wait 8 more months for season 3 of Silicon Valley to start, so I spent the past 48 hours writing my own episode. It picks up where season 2 left off, and you can read it here: http://blakeross.com/SiliconValley.html

This is my first television script ever, which means it’s probably the roughest draft I've ever shared. I plan to do this a thousand more times until I figure out the medium. Until then, I'm taking a page from all those tech companies who wait ’til the Friday night of an Apple launch to quietly announce that they're replacing their privacy policy with a Snickers wrapper:

I'm shipping while you’re all at Burning Man.

Google's new social search features only include results from Google's own social network. See how relevant and useful Google would be if it included results from the entire social web—from popular services like Tumblr, Quora, Facebook and Twitter.

I put this together over the weekend with some engineers from Twitter, Facebook and MySpace.
See how much better Google's results would be if they included information from across the social web, rather than just Google's own social network.

Nevada recently shut down Uber for not protecting tourists. Last month, while a Vegas cabbie was ripping me off in a car that smelt of well-aged mackerel, I had some time to research how the state’s own enforcement system worked.

I was pleasantly surprised by the government’s approach compared to Uber’s clunky ratings system—it had over three times as much PDF, and 400% more foam.

Here are my findings in full.
It’s Time to Let the Government Drive

I'm currently a small business owner and I do not get why my ads account was closed. I have recently tried facebook advertising this January 2015 but I had my ads account closed for unusual activity. I've proven my identity with my birth certificate and passport.
The support still pushed for unusual activity which I do not get.
Please resolve this.
Thank you!
