Google Spaces had no reason to exist.

How many millions of lines of code does it take? Chart of various projects ranging from the few hundred thousand, for an iPhone game, all the way up to 2 billion for Google.

I've heard Google employees crank out 15 million lines of code per month.

Basically the equivalent of all of Windows every 3 months.

Though if you added up all the lines of code every employee produced on every project, it might be in the same ballpark for other big companies like Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, etc.

The reason it's easier to do that for Google is that they made the decision when the company was started to put all the code in a single directory tree, so all Google's projects are in a sense part of one big project, something that isn't true for other companies.

"TV news report about unwanted Alexa orders triggers unwanted Alexa orders." Quite a headline, but (for once!) apparently not an exaggeration.

"Television anchors on San Diego's CW6 were discussing how a young girl 'accidentally' ordered a dollhouse and four pounds of cookies by talking to Amazon's Alexa when one of the anchors said 'I love the little girl, saying 'Alexa ordered me a dollhouse.' Oops."

"Browsix is a framework that bridges the considerable gap between conventional operating systems and the browser, enabling unmodified programs expecting a Unix-like environment to run directly in the browser. Browsix does this by mapping low-level Unix primitives, like processes and system calls, onto existing browser APIs, like Web Workers and postMessage."

"Browsix brings all of these abstractions into unmodified browsers, and is isolated and secured to the same extent any normal web page is: at the level of the browser tab."
