Why I left Google to join Grab – Steve Yegge – Medium
Food trucks lowered the barrier to entry significantly, but food delivery lowers it to near-zero. Cathy and Romano realized you can literally cook out of your own kitchen to get started. They are the forefront of a new era. When this idea inevitably takes off, people are going to be able to order take-out from their neighbors, from anyone in the city who wants to cook their family recipe. It will change cuisine forever.

THIS IS WAY MORE INTERESTING THAN THE ANALYSIS OF WHAT'S WRONG WITH GOOGLE.

If Google Is Biased, So Are Its Algorithms - Bloomberg
If the Damore lawsuit correctly describes an aggressively leftist culture at Google, the human input into the algorithms can be expected to favor the leftist worldview. That may lead to overcorrection -- and to the burying of alternative views, noxiously right-wing or even mainstream conservative. When I type "women are" in the Google search window, the first suggestion I get is "women are always right." How do I know this is not the result of the personal bias of someone who tweaked the suggestion algorithm?

Brief thoughts on the “Google memo” – Julia Galef
I’d actually be less disappointed if the critics’ response had simply been “Look, you can’t talk about gender differences at work.” As a general rule, I hate to ban topics, but I can see how this one could have harmful effects.

TheSpec - The Dirty Little Secrets of Search
So how does he justify all his efforts to undermine that engine?

“I think we need to make a distinction between two different kinds of searches — informational and commercial,” he said. “If you search ‘cancer,’ that’s an informational search and on those, Google is amazing. But in commercial searches, Google’s results are really polluted. My own personal experience says that the guy with the biggest S.E.O. budget always ranks the highest.”

To Mr. Stevens, S.E.O. is a game, and if you’re not paying black hats, you are losing to rivals with fewer compunctions.

Google and Money! by Charles Petersen | The New York Review of Books
If we can imagine that future, we can also picture a more disturbing variation: perhaps a depressive son begins reading blog posts about suicidal thoughts, and shortly thereafter his parents begin to notice a rise in advertisements for psychotropic drugs and crisis prevention hotlines. Would that be wrong? Perhaps not, but as advertising becomes more personalized, pervasive, and instantaneously updatable, it seems likely that more and more users will want to opt out of a system that, though perhaps seldom deeply intrusive, will continually be pushing the boundaries of what we find acceptable.

Apple Wins First Round Of TV War With Google (AAPL, GOOG)
Google is going after "input one" on your TV -- the first input where your cable box is plugged in, which is a really big, really risky bet. Most people don't mess with input one. How often do you switch cable or satellite providers? Or set-top boxes? Rarely, if ever.
Apple, meanwhile, is going after "input two," where your DVD player or videogame machine is probably plugged in. In most households, that's likely to be an easier entry point -- mentally easier to unplug, easier to experiment with.

Gmail Priority Inbox Sorts Your Email For You. And It’s Fantastic.
Email overload has finally met its match. Tomorrow, Gmail is rolling out a new feature called Priority Inbox that is going to be a Godsend for those of you who dread opening your email. In short, Google has built a system that figures out which of your messages are important, and presents them at the top of the screen so you don’t miss them. The rest of your messages are still there, but you don’t have to dig through dozens of newsletters and confirmations to find the diamonds in rough.

The beauty of the system lies in its simplicity — it’s nearly as easy as Gmail’s one click spam filter. There’s almost no setup: once it’s activated on your account, you’ll see a prompt asking you if you want to enable Priority Inbox. You can choose from a few options (the order of your various inboxes and if there are any contacts you’d like to always mark ‘Important’) but don’t have to setup any rules or ‘teach’ Gmail what you want it to mark important. It just works, at least most of the time.

The Agnostic Cartographer - John Gravois
Just five years since the release of Google Maps and Google Earth, the corporation may well be the world’s most important mapmaker. More than 600 million people around the world have downloaded Google Earth. As a testament to ambition, that number alone would be remarkable. But Google is also intent on upending our very notion of what a map is. Rather than produce one definitive map of the world, Google offers multiple interpretations of the earth’s geography. Sometimes, this takes the form of customized maps that cater to the beliefs of one nation or another. More often, though, Google is simply an agnostic cartographer—a peddler of “place browsers” that contain a multitude of views instead of univocal, authoritative, traditional maps. “We work to provide as much discoverable information as possible so that users can make their own judgments about geopolitical disputes,” writes Robert Boorstin, the director of Google’s public policy team.

YouTube Is Doomed (GOOG)
Since the majority of Google’s costs for the service are pure variable costs of bandwidth and storage, and since they’ve already reached the point at which no greater economies of scale remain, the costs of the business will continue to grow on a linear basis. Unfortunately, far more user-generated content than professional content makes its way onto the site, which means that while costs grow linearly, non-monetizable content is growing geometrically as compared against the monetizable content that YouTube really wants and needs to survive. This means less and less of YouTube’s library will be revenue-contributing, while the costs of delivering that library will continue to grow.

With the ongoing hammering of ad CPMs and unstoppable growth in the site’s popularity, Google is going to bleed substantial cash on this experiment for the foreseeable future. With costs of operation at half a billion dollars and growing, YouTube’s future is very much in doubt.
