Ex-Googler ventures opinion about Chrome

Yak, yak, yak, yak. For a guy who had zilch to do with the project and was completely unaware of its existence, on what his former employer is up to, he sure seems to think he has a handle.  Essentially, I think this guy is interested in convincing fund managers who read his blog to buy scads and scads more Google stock, making his own hoard more valuable. Google’s strategy, he feels, is not the success of Chrome but of getting people off the desktop completely and doing everything online. I think this inevitable, anyway, and a lot of people are jumping on the bandwagon without having a clue, and Google will probably profit for this for awhile, until some upstart blindsides them, becoming the New Borg.

The future generation of the internet is going to be communicating directly from our heads folks, it’s the ultimate step, probably something like

Cogswell’s singularity or sumptin’, and someone will figure out how to profit from that


See you at that party, or probably readin’ your mind.
