I'm Feeling Lucky

Google

So Rob and I went to BayCHI’s March meeting (use permalinks damnit!) this past week to see Google founder Larry Page speak about his company and the lack of innovation in his industry. He had a very low opinion of company leaders who lack technical skills and made a point against the practice of using the “latest/greatest” tools to solve problems rather than researching a more logical solution. Which are good points but in the end he came off as being a bit arrogant. I suppose it takes a certain degree of arrogance though to develop a project as significant as Google without it being erroded by business-as-usual thinking.

The leader of the BayCHI East chapter made an announcement about an event in Berkeley later in the month called The Design of Online Communities which I’m going to try to make it to as well.
