Went to a “Google breakfast” seminar. Got a free breakfast and a peek at how Google is marketing it’s “Google at Work” stuff. Some interesting quotes:
- Fast is better than Slow
- Fail quickly and learn
- Assume chaos and deal with it
Some other stuff: Manual Categories and Hierarchies are Dead – replaced by Great Search. Google will be releasing a Wiki technology soon. I think it’s the JotSpot acquisition they made. I signed up for that beta a long time ago with no reply yet.
The most interesting part I suppose was that the presenter Michael Lock showed us his gMail account live, as well as the Google intranet “Moma.” It’s good to see Google using their own applications for this.
There was free bacon too.
