Will Robert Kyncl and YouTube Revolutionize Television? On a rainy night in late November, Robert Kyncl was in Google’s New York City offices, on Ninth Avenue, whiteboarding the future of TV. Kyncl holds a senior position at YouTube, which Google owns. He is the architect of the single largest cultural transformation in YouTube’s seven-year history. Wielding a black Magic Marker, he charted the big bang of channel expansion and audience fragmentation that has propelled television history so far, from the age of the three networks, each with a mass audience, to the hundreds of cable channels, each serving a niche audience—twenty-four-hour news, food, sports, weather, music—and on to the dawning age of Internet video, bringing channels by the tens of thousands. “People went from broad to narrow,” he said, “and we think they will continue to go that way—spend more and more time in the niches—because now the distribution landscape allows for more narrowness.”

Why is Chrome so important to Google? It's a 'locked-in user' Google's Chrome browser historically has looked like just another side project for the company.
Sure Chrome is a speedy browser. Sure Google has garnered impressive market share in a short time. And yes Google gets to push browser development a bit. But the real importance of Chrome---and why Google is marketing the browser so heavy around the world---boils down to the lifetime value of a Chrome user. CFO Patrick Pichette was asked about the importance of Chrome on the company's earnings conference call and his answer bonks you over the head. Google Holds Out Against ‘Do Not Track’ Flag. And then there was Chrome.
Apple made it clear this week that the next version of its Safari browser — which will ship with the upcoming version of Mac OS — will include the ability for users to tell websites not to track them, by using what’s known as the ‘Do Not Track’ header, according to The Wall Street Journal. It’s a technically simple change that Mozilla (the maker of Firefox) and Microsoft (the maker of IE) have already included in their newest browsers. Those companies included the change despite the fact that no one has actually defined what tracking is. So far only two ad networks, Blue Kai and Chitika, have pledged to obey the flag.
That leaves Chrome, the browser created by the online-advertising giant Google, alone in not supporting the nascent feature. ‘The idea of Do Not Track is interesting, but there doesn’t seem to be wide consensus on what tracking really means.’
Google : numéro 1 mondial de l'open source ? Ah qu’il était doux et rassurant le temps de l’informatique à grand-papa où nous avions nos ordinateurs fixes qui se connectaient de temps en temps et où nous luttions avec confiance et enthousiasme contre le grand-méchant Microsoft !
Ce temps-là est révolu. Nous entrons dans une autre décennie et il se pourrait bien que le principal sujet de conversation de la communauté du logiciel libre dans les dix ans à venir ne soit plus Microsoft (symbole du logiciel propriétaire, j’ai mal à mes fichiers !) Mais Google (symbole de l’informatique dans les nuages, j’ai mal à mes données personnelles !)

Innovation is hard, especially when a new idea needs to create billions of dollars in revenue for it to count. In the the following guest post, author and former venture capitalist Peter Sims talks about the challenges Google faces not to suffer the same fate as every other dominant tech company before it. Sims is co-author of True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership with Bill George. His next book, Little Bets, will be published next spring. He can be found on Twitter @petersims. In late April, JP Morgan invited me to a “thought leaders dinner” to discuss the latest goings on in Silicon Valley and digital media. Anyhow, after about an hour and a few glasses wine, Jimmy raised the main question he was curious about: “I want to know from each of you: which company would you go long on and which would you short?” I, too, was surprised.
