Welcome In July we launched Lively in Google Labs because we wanted users to be able to interact with their friends and express themselves online in new ways. Google has always been supportive of this kind of experimentation because we believe it's the best way to create groundbreaking products that make a difference to people's lives.

Most of the technically savvy minds often invest in gadgets that include laptops, smart phones and desktops among others. The advantage with these gadgets is that they get you going; however, the flipside is that they may make you get confused.

Occupy Wall Street: The Most Important Thing in the World Now Published in The Nation. I was honored to be invited to speak at Occupy Wall Street on Thursday night. Since amplification is (disgracefully) banned, and everything I said had to be repeated by hundreds of people so others could hear (a.k.a. “the human microphone”), what I actually said at Liberty Plaza had to be very short.
