How Does Google Handle IT for Its Workers? Ask CIO Ben Fried - WSJ - WSJ -
How Does Google Handle IT for Its Workers? Ask CIO Ben Fried - WSJ - WSJ
"Many chief information officers find themselves in the role of technology evangelist, raising awareness of the value of information technology among skeptical leaders at the executive and board level. But what if you work at Google Inc. and your CEO is Google co-founder Larry Page ? It’s no surprise that Google CIO Ben Fried ’s experience is probably a lot different than that of most of his peers. Mr. Fried, who joined Google six years ago after 13 years at Morgan Stanley, leads IT at a company where no one needs to be convinced about the value of the cloud, and where choice in the use of technology has been enshrined for years. Most businesses are headed in that direction—Google just got there sooner. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Fried spoke about the link between technology and company culture." - Me from Bookmarklet

Sometimes it feels like the outsourced IT folks get paid by the number of follow up questions asked. Actually reading emails must not pay nearly as well.
This contrasts with our offshore team who ask no questions ever, not even amongst themselves according to some of our staff who've paid a visit; they sit in absolute silence, doing the work they're paid poorly for, and doing it poorly too. So poorly that it drives the rest of us insane and leads to a lot of instructions to do things again but the bosses know best and they know they can... more... - Mark H
Better to ask then not ask. - Me
This company goes through a lot of people so you are always dealing with inexperienced people. I let this issue simmer on purpose; I have been unable to connect to one of our remote systems for two weeks. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
The other night, the hotel we were in had "Gluten-Free Vegan Cake" for dessert. I wonder if the gluten-free vegans were fresh, or if they brought them in frozen. Either way, they made a pretty tasty cake.
Welcome to portland! ;) - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
Yup. It's amazing how many politically correct foods there are around here. It's kind of blowing my mind. Also, on a slightly different subject, Voodoo Doughnuts are works of art, but the one Blue Star donut I had was much tastier. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
YES. you learned the PDX doughnut truth. :) which did you have at Blue Star? - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
I'm not sure what it was called, but it had a super-dark chocolate glaze and crushed peanuts sprinkled on top. The chocolate glaze was amazing (might have had some sort of coffee/espresso in it, based on how bitter and magical it was). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

These Crappy Reviews of National Parks on Yelp Will Make You Laugh, and Then Probably Cry | Adweek
Show all
"Yelp reviewers have a knack for making everything about them, and potentially ruining businesses because they woke up on the wrong side of bed. Some places have gotten so cynical about these "critics" that they've even asked people to post bad reviews on purpose. But what about America's most pristine natural landscapes? Surely Yelp reviewers can unite in their appreciation of such beauty. What about the purple mountain majesties? The friggin' amber waves of grain? What about the flipping fruited plains, America? Sorry, people will hate on all that, too. Mashable recently combed Yelp for negative reviews of the national parks by people who clearly don't like nice things and would be much happier on their couch watching reality television. The results are hilarious. And completely depressing." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Episodes Land at Vimeo, Which Has Exclusive on Future Releases | Variety
"A collection of 80 episodes of cult comedy series “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” featuring a man and his robot sidekicks riffing on especially terrible B-movies and assorted shorts, is now available on Vimeo. In addition, under Vimeo’s pact with Shout! Factory for “MST3K,” the online-video service has exclusive rights to any newly cleared episodes launching over the next year. According to Vimeo, about a dozen new “MST3K” episodes are slated to become available within the next 12 months. Homevideo rights for the show are complicated by the fact that the segments include full-length films and clips owned by other studios, and to date only 80 of 198 total “MST3K” episodes have been made available for digital distribution." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

My wife can barely speak at all, due to the tumor. (to communicate we ask questions and she nods) I have noticed in the early mornings she says a few words. I made a short video and emailed it to her daughter, saying thank you and love you. only 5 words, but the video made her day.
You are a good guy, Mike. These days are precious and it takes a huge heart to share them. You are amazing. - Shannon - GlassMistress

What a beautiful gift, Mike, both for Beverly that she was able to tell her daughter that she loves her, and for her daughter, who will treasure that. I continue to hold you both close in my thoughts. - vicster: full-bodied

Idle thought as I was ripping out turf and listening to music, when "Old Friends" came up: "Gee, Paul Simon can't be that much younger than I. Will he really find it terribly strange to be 70?" (for me, that's a year from now). Turns out he's nearly four years older than I am, so he's been feeling terribly strange since October 2011...
[Probably beaten to death in the popular media back then; I don't keep up with that stuff very well.] - Walt Crawford
I don't find it terribly strange to be 38, but when I'm with my friend I've known since we were 4, I often think it is terribly strange that we are now both so much older and have children (and one of hers is in high school!). - laura x
When we are 70, we'll have known each other for 66 years. - laura x
Not at all related, or maybe it is: Last Saturday's "Asbury Follies"--a low-key thing at my brother's church--included "When I'm 94," sung by a man to his wife, the man considerably closer to 94 than to 64. Quite lovely, actually... - Walt Crawford
Also, now I'm listening to all of Simon & Garfunkel in chronological order and feeling oddly nostalgic for high school. - laura x
Odd opinion formed because of alphabetic song playing sequence: When it comes to dissing dull small towns, I think Garth Brooks' "Nobody Gets Off In This Town" wins over S&G's "My Little Town." Although the latter is certainly more dramatic, the former's funnier & more pointed. (I like them both.) - Walt Crawford
