How many women can you name who have both a supercomputer and a U.S Navy destroyer named after them? Grace Hopper—who we’re celebrating with a doodle today in the U.S.—is one. “Amazing Grace”’s contributions to computer science made her a pioneer in the field. She created the first compiler for a programming language and led the development of COBOL, the first modern programming language. Happy 107th birthday to Grace Hopper!

Open Access for Publications
Posted by +Alfred Spector, Vice President, Engineering

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) recently announced a new option for publication rights management, wherein researchers can choose to pay for the public to have perpetual open access to the publication (http://goo.gl/OXlYp). Google applauds this new option, and today we are announcing that we will pay the open access fees for all articles by Google researchers that are published in ACM journals. IEEE (http://goo.gl/qqeka) also has an open access option for some of its publications, and we also pay the open access fee for them and for publications in like organizations.

Google has always believed that by improving access to the world’s knowledge, we can help improve everyone’s lives. When it comes to scientific research, we have consistently said that open access to publications speeds up research, accelerates innovation, and helps grow the global economy (http://goo.gl/eDfj7).

Policies like ACM’s continue to demonstrate the sustainability of open access publishing. It will also provide better access to the papers that we write at Google. We encourage researchers everywhere to pursue open access options whenever publishing articles, and to continue to make publications available as widely as possible, within your rights.

We have long pushed for transparency so users can better understand the extent to which governments request their data—and Google was the first company to release numbers for National Security Letters. However, greater transparency is needed, so today we have petitioned the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to allow us to publish aggregate numbers of national security requests, including FISA disclosures, separately. Lumping national security requests together with criminal requests—as some companies have been permitted to do—would be a backward step for our users.

The best career decision I made was going into technology -- its a fast growing field, filled with opportunity and fun.  Girls/women - there are not enough of us joining the technology industry.  Whatever stage of your career or studies you are in, consider joining the technology field and help us build the future.

Dear Google users—

You may be aware of press reports alleging that Internet companies have joined a secret U.S. government program called PRISM to give the National Security Agency direct access to our servers. As Google’s CEO and Chief Legal Officer, we wanted you to have the facts.

First, we have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers. Indeed, the U.S. government does not have direct access or a “back door” to the information stored in our data centers. We had not heard of a program called PRISM until yesterday.

Second, we provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process. Press reports that suggest that Google is providing open-ended access to our users’ data are false, period. Until this week’s reports, we had never heard of the broad type of order that Verizon received—an order that appears to have required them to hand over millions of users’ call records. We were very surprised to learn that such broad orders exist. Any suggestion that Google is disclosing information about our users’ Internet activity on such a scale is completely false. 

Finally, this episode confirms what we have long believed—there needs to be a more transparent approach. Google has worked hard, within the confines of the current laws, to be open about the data requests we receive. We post this information on our Transparency Report whenever possible. We were the first company to do this. And, of course, we understand that the U.S. and other governments need to take action to protect their citizens’ safety—including sometimes by using surveillance. But the level of secrecy around the current legal procedures undermines the freedoms we all cherish.

Concept by Hamutzim.

Stay far, far away. Had to re-order our cabinets twice, due to three different mistakes (two of which were their fault, one of which was the cabinet manufacturer's). Unresponsive customer service---twice I called to check on the status of a reorder and the response was, "Oh, those are here; when would you like to have them delivered?". Maybe I'm nuts but I figure most places would call to schedule delivery, rather than rely on their customers constantly bugging them to see if something has shown up from the manufacturer. After all the mistakes and over two months delay (costing us a significant amount of money in wasted work days for our contractor, when they showed up to discover broken and/or incorrectly-made cabinets), they were resistant to giving us any discount or compensation on our multiple thousands of dollars order. It took us physically going to the store and waiting for the owner himself to get them to write us a check for just $150 off the whole order (only refunding our delivery fee). They first tried to give us nothing, then tried to give us Lettuce Entertain You gift certificates. By far the worst customer service experience I've ever had in this industry.

Pizza is decent-to-good but this place is miserable for eating-in. Super hot (no a/c), ultra loud, crappy service. Our largish group got dumped down in the pit with just tiny square cocktail tables we had to assemble ourselves. I can think of many places I'd rather return to before this joint. Also: the crowd trends very douchey on the weekend, given its location by Milwaukee/North/Damen.

Joel's reputation for crotchety-ness is undeserved. He's not the most chatty guy but very nice, super helpful and knowledgeable. Fair prices and all sorts of random parts in stock. Plus last time my son and I were there he had an honest-to-god penny farthing in the shop, getting repaired. AWESOME.
