U.S. Enables Chinese Hacking of Google
"In the aftermath of Google's announcement, some members of Congress are reviving a bill banning U.S. tech companies from working with governments that digitally spy on their citizens. Presumably, those legislators don't understand that their own government is on the list."

Now a Giant, Google Works to Retain Nimble Minds - NYTimes.com
Google’s chief executive, Eric E. Schmidt, says that people who think Google faces brain drain are “fundamentally wrong.” The company’s attrition rate for people it wished would stay has been constant for seven years, he said.

Nevertheless, Google’s maturation worries him. “There was a time when three people at Google could build a world-class product and deliver it, and it is gone,” Mr. Schmidt said. “So I think it’s absolutely harder to get things out the door. That’s probably our biggest strategic issue.”

App Inventor for Android
"The compiler that translates the visual blocks language for implementation on Android uses the Kawa Language Framework and Kawa's dialect of the Scheme programming language, developed by Per Bothner and distributed as part of the Gnu Operating System by the Free Software Foundation.

The educational perspective that motivates App Inventor holds that programming can be a vehicle for engaging powerful ideas through active learning. As such, it is part of an ongoing movement in computers and education that began with the work of Seymour Papert and the MIT Logo Group in the 1960s. "

ITA Becomes Hot Ticket [WSJ.com]
"ITA, whose technology powers a huge chunk of all online travel queries in the U.S., has been negotiating exclusively on a potential deal with Google, which doesn't have its own standalone travel search engine, these people said.

But other potential bidders, including Expedia Inc., Kayak.com and Travelport, have expressed interest as well. Some of them have submitted unsolicited offers of cash and stock for closely held ITA, but haven't been given access to the company's financial information on the grounds that ITA is in exclusive negotiations with another buyer, according to these people."

facebook tv - this is sippey.com
If Google TV is going to have a shot at displacing one of those boxes (or even joining them and their mess of cabling) it's going to have to do something radically better. And I'm not quite sure a search box interface is it. I don't have problems finding things I already know I want to watch. I do have a problem discovering things I should be watching that I didn't know about before. And in my mind that's a social problem, not a search problem.

Thought experiment: what if tomorrow Facebook announced Facebook TV? Would their default UI -- a stream of recommended items from your friends -- be more or less compelling than Google's search box?

Official Google Docs Blog: What’s different about the new Google Docs?
"A month ago we introduced the latest version of the Google document editor. The new editor comes with features like a ruler, tabs stops, and floating images. Those features might seem pretty basic, but they’re nearly impossible to support in a regular online text editor. This post unwraps some of the core technical changes with the new editor to make this new functionality possible."

Chromium Blog: Irregexp, Google Chrome's New Regexp Implementation
"A fundamental decision we made early in the design of Irregexp was that we would be willing to spend extra time compiling a regular expression if that would make running it faster. During compilation Irregexp first converts a regexp into an intermediate automaton representation. This is in many ways the "natural" and most accessible representation and makes it much easier to analyze and optimize the regexp. For instance, when compiling /Sun|Mon/ the automaton representation lets us recognize that both alternatives have an 'n' as their third character. We can quickly scan the input until we find an 'n' and then start to match the regexp two characters earlier. Irregexp looks up to four characters ahead and matches up to four characters at a time.

After optimization we generate native machine code which uses backtracking to try different alternatives. Backtracking can be time-consuming so we use optimizations to avoid as much of it as we can."

Unladen Swallow: LLVM based Python compiler [Lambda the Ultimate]
" We want to make Python faster, but we also want to make it easy for large, well-established applications to switch to Unladen Swallow.

1. Produce a version of Python at least 5x faster than CPython.
2. Python application performance should be stable.
3. Maintain source-level compatibility with CPython applications.
4. Maintain source-level compatibility with CPython extension modules.
5. We do not want to maintain a Python implementation forever; we view our work as a branch, not a fork.

Google's Microsoft Moment - Anil Dash
"I'm not sure Google's new Chrome OS announcement is that big a deal, or that the eventual product that gets released will actually have that much impact, but it's a useful milestone in marking Google's evolution towards becoming an older company with a distinctly different culture than they used to have."

The site allows users to tile YouTube videos frame-by-frame, with options to resize the frames and even display them as a spiral.

Helvetireader
"Helvetireader is a userscript that pares down Google Reader to what I consider to be the essentials. In particular, it's made for looking at feeds in the expanded view, using Keyboard Shortcuts instead of on-screen buttons. It’s not going to suit how everyone uses Google Reader, so you can take the CSS and personalise to your hearts content!

All you need is a browser that supports userscripts (see below) and, of course, Helvetica."

Can Your Programming Language Do This? - Joel on Software
"Ok. I hope you're convinced, by now, that programming languages with first-class functions let you find more opportunities for abstraction, which means your code is smaller, tighter, more reusable, and more scalable. Lots of Google applications use MapReduce and they all benefit whenever someone optimizes it or fixes bugs."
