In just a few short years, Google I/O has evolved into one of the must-attend-or-watch events on the technology calendar. Thousands of developers are expected to take part in the 2013 edition, which kicks off Wednesday morning at Moscone West in San Francisco, and we’ll be bringing you coverage of the show all week, including live coverage of Wednesday’s keynote address featuring top Google executives and likely to feature news about Android, Chrome, YouTube, and Google’s suite of enterprise-oriented cloud computing services.
While it might not feature anything as crazy as last year’s Google Glass-streamed skydive over downtown San Francisco, if you love (or love to hate) Google’s world, here’s what you can expect this week. We’ll update this post as new stories are posted.
