Google's Wonder Wheel Experiment, and More Google’s Wonder Wheel Experiment, and MoreBy Tony Ruscoe & Philipp Lenssen Google is running an experiment in their search results, apparently shown to a portion of their users.

This semester, my students at the School of Information at UC-Berkeley researched the VC system from the perspective of company founders. We prepared a detailed survey; randomly selected 500 companies from a venture database; and set out to contact the founders. Thanks to Reid Hoffman, we were able to get premium access to LinkedIn—which was very helpful and provided a wealth of information. But some of the founders didn’t have LinkedIn accounts, and others didn’t respond to our LinkedIn “inmails”. So I instructed my students to use Google searches to research each founder’s work history, by year, and to track him or her down in that way.

They know what they want, for example a “Beyblade Metal Fusion Super Vortex Battle Set,” and are ready to review a specific set of results. Spearfishers and Netcasters

“How much has it been your experience that Americans follow what happens in the world? It’s something we’ll monitor, but Americans are somewhat self-absorbed.” -Reed Hastings, October 2010 In the book, Eli writes at length about the troubling combination of Peter Thiel’s extreme libertarian views and seat on Facebook’s board of directors. Peter Thiel is entitled to his idiosyncratic views, of course, but they’re worth paying attention to because they increasingly shape the world we all live in. There are only four other people on the Facebook board besides Mark Zuckerberg; Thiel is one of them, and Zuckerberg publicly describes him as a mentor.
After watching cars steadily stream through the drive-through window for weeks, it was obvious that the Kahwa reputation for excellent coffee had spread to South Tampa. I have visited the St. Pete and downtown Tampa sites so I new what to expect in terms of what would be on the menu. The drink selection is not extensive but also not overwhelming. The prices are not bargain basement but not so high as to make you blink in disbelief.
The idea behind NeuroGrid is to provide a framework for finding information within a distributed environment. NeuroGrid is based on the idea of automating the process we use in human society to find out things that we want to know, or the locations of things that we need.
