I am going to try and live blog the Google press day event. It is packed room, and tons of journalists are in the room. Despite all that, we are all disconnected. There is a problem with the WiFi and there is no connection. I am posting this from my crackberry.

Eric Schmidt is on stage drawing parallels between the highway system and the Internet. He is talking about LAMP and using all buzzwords like AJAX and Mash-Ups.

He says Google grew because of viral marketing. We are successful because of lot of personal aha moments.

They just launched Google Trends and new widgets for Google desktop widgets.

Marissa says that since Google knows a lot about you, they are going to include a recommendation angine. It will also automatically create a Google Page for you.this looks pretty slick. You can sync between machines.

Its a lot likes Apple is inspiring them all.

Just announced Google Co-op. Yahoo guys must be quite happy in the fact that some of their social web ideas are being put to use elsewhere.Talking about the GOOGLE COOP…. Does this mean the all mighty GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE can’t do it all and need help of mere humans! Stop the presses because this is different direction. I am not sure why will they be successful when Yahoo is still getting limted traction. I think there is also the big point…. Google users don’t spend much time on the site. This might also be a way to get them to stick around.

Google notebook is another new product which is a little pop up screen that allows you to take notes, drop links etc. It follows you even if you leave Google. Yojimbo does that on Mac but is local. Good tool to organize data you find on the web. Kaboodle…take note!

  1. I can’t wait to see what they launch, Google Health?

  4. Hiay Om,

    Glad to finally meet you last Saturday in NYC.

    I’m live blogging the Web cast at: http://billkosloskymd.typepad.com/wirelessdoc/2006/05/livebloggingg.html if anyone’s interested.

    Alan already used the example of a medical textbook index to describe the search technology, so I think this might be a prelude to an announcement of Google Health. BTAICBW.

  6. They are addressing a lot of these things. Some reason the blogging software is barfing. Hang on. Not sure about when the wifi comes back.

  7. They pretty much dismissed the issue of click fraud.

    Specifics are lacking in just about every answer.
