    Matt Jones on stuff done at BERG and Google, and our anti-anti-utopian future. (Video plus slides & transcript.)

  2. So, about this Googler’s manifesto. – Yonatan Zunger – Medium

    Aside from the sense about that Googler’s document, this is good on what being a high-level engineer means. Confirms for me that, really, I’m a hobbyist.

  3. In Oracle v. Google, a Nerd Subculture Is on Trial | Motherboard

    I love this collision between tech culture and a court made up of “normals”, as the author describes them. (Odd that the article doesn’t say what the trial’s about until the final sentence though.)

  4. [messaging] Modern anti-spam and E2E crypto

    Fascinating summary, from 2014, of the problems with blocking email spam and how end-to-end encryption affects that.

  5. Adactio: Journal—URLy warning

    Jeremy Keith is, as usual, right. Chrome removing the URL bar makes me much sadder, and a bit angrier, than any UI tweaking should.

    What it says. QUICK! A command line tool. (via @antimega)

  7. Google, what were you thinking? ← Mocality Kenya

    Some fine Internet detective work from Stef uncovers Google being, well, evil in Kenya.

  9. Implementing a Fixed Position iOS Web Application - Google Mobile Developer Products - Google Code

    Brilliant: how to (a) make page elements fixed on iOS Safari (which doesn’t acknowledge position:fixed, grrrr) and (b) do scrolling with momentum. Gmail in iOS Safari is very swish.

  10. Google-refine - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Looks very nice - an interface to sort, search, cluster, refine, and generally tidy up large datasets. (via Waxy)

  11. The government shouldn’t hang on Google’s every word | Charles Arthur | Comment is free |

    Yes, it’s good the government is making positive noises about technology, start-ups etc, but also, this. (Although, are you really surprised a government, especially Conservative, is taking policy advice from large companies?)

  12. The Data Liberation Front (the Data Liberation Front)

    “An engineering team at Google whose singular goal is to make it easier for users to move their data in and out of Google products.” (via Haddock)

  13. Art Fag City » IMG MGMT: The Nine Eyes of Google Street View

  14. YouTube - Google Wave Developer Preview at Google I/O 2009

    I finally got round to watching this demo. I rarely need collaborative tools and I like plain text email. And yet this really looks like the future. Worth setting aside some time to watch until the end.

  15. Simonw’s geocoders at master - GitHub

    Python “code for accessing various geocoding web services with an ultra simple API”. Sounds good.

    Doug Bowman on how buttons were developed on Google apps. Good HTML/CSS cleverness. (via Simon Willison)

  17. Google Open Source Blog: Google Blog Converters 1.0 Released

    Excellent - scripts to convert between Blogger, LiveJournal, MovableType and WordPress. I reckon every single online service should have an “Export” button and nag you if you haven’t backed-up in a while. (via Tom Taylor)

  18. Why Google App Engine is broken and what Google must do to fix it. at Aral Balkan

    My word, it sounds quite useless really. (via Simon Willison)

    URLs of all the standard icons.

    Google Maps can now give you walking directions. A quick couple of comparisons in London showed it doesn’t know about as many pedestrian-only alleys etc as Yet. (via City of Sound)

  21. Google Maps API Tutorial

    Lots of examples for how to do things with Google Maps. (via Tim Brayshaw)

  22. Freaky People Productions » Blog Archive » Google Maps causes Safari 1.3.2 to crash

    If you use the Google Maps API your Javascript may have recently started crashing Safari 1.3.2. This is how to fix it.

    I’ve wanted to do this for ages and didn’t know you could. So you can, for example, get your Google Groups messages sent to different email addresses. (via Technovia)

    I’m trying not to let this useful game eat up all of my time, although it’s getting a fair amount of it.

    Official Google Maps app for the Treo. Works a treat. All it needs now is walking directions…

  27. Google Maps - Salton City, California

    The road layout of an American town founded in the 1950s, which failed to develop. (via Google Sightseeing)
