BWAAAHAAA!!! "Driverless cars". We already have those where I live. The drivers are electric shaving or putting on lipstick while texting, trying to manage a bagel, doing the balancing act with a bottle of water or a cup of coffee, and doing just about anything else you can think of except for... driving.

Ambitious project, definitely. I'm a bit skeptical that Google can determine what is fact and what isn't. I think the end result will net something like Wikipedia - never fully trusted.

Within the medical field researchers into DNA have developed searching algorithms that attempt and have succeeded in places where patterns within the data have been discovered.

The spokesman I heard said that the statistical analysis has got to the stage of running scenarios that can adapt to useful lines of enquiry to determine correlations that would be certainly impractical by traditional methods.

Does Google, Twitter, Facebook, or any company ever discuss internally the consequences on society if their "latest, greatest, most wonderful" technology is taken to it's "logical extreme" by: (1) Criminals, (2) Psychopaths, (3) Ex-spouses, (4) Overzealous law enforcement, (5) Extremists of any ilk, (6) Governments that contain any or all of the prior?

In a discussion recently a co-worker mentioned the idea of someone on a subway with a pair of "intelligent glasses" linked to face recognition software that searched facebook and other sites for matches, then automatically sent a tweet out "I just saw (person XYZ) on the (specific subway line) between stations C and D."

Consider the "synergy" and consequences of the intersection of those two paragraphs...

Think I'll stay off Facebook another year... :)

How many decades have we heard reference to the "Starfleet Database", where the crew of any starship in any part of the galaxy can find out information about any person in history whenever they want to. Is this what Google wants? I think that having all the social media sites growing with all the subscribers photos, videos, posts, and other personal information is building towards something like this gigantic data source that can be accessed by anyone at anytime. Think about it. How often do we hear that law enforcement can access your Facebook and Twitter information to see what criminals have been posting out there.

The Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus links a database of 145,000 words

It would be interesting to see MSDN do something similar with .NET or SQL Server Books Online.

I think Google is reading way too much of their own press clippings and it is going to their heads.

BWAAAHAAA!!! "Driverless cars". We already have those where I live. The drivers are electric shaving or putting on lipstick while texting, trying to manage a bagel, doing the balancing act with a bottle of water or a cup of coffee, and doing just about anything else you can think of except for... driving.

A former neighbor of mine used to drive home from work while transcribing notes he made on a voice recorder onto his legal pad. This was between towns that were around 90 miles apart, and where he had to go through Chicago on the way. He drove this for years without any issues. You have to keep in mind that some of the highways, although the speed limit is 55, if you do anything less than about 80 the state cops will run you off the road! He normally made the "run" in about 75 minutes due to the time of day he commuted.

On the other hand, I know people that can't drive when the only thing they are doing is driving!

To me, I don't care what you are doing, as long as you are competent and not causing problems. Driverless cars will be a huge issue, and I am against them, but if we could design them so the idiots had to use them, and they stayed in the right lane, and actually did the speed limit, the rest of us could get to and from work safely. Some people can drive, some people can't tie their shoes.

Perhaps there's a way for us to actually mine the data we have about a customer, or a situation, and present results that are more relevant and useful


Please, just no.

I have a dream that one day people who run companies and make these decisions on marketing come to the understanding that people hate it. Maybe we need to take every marketing employee, every sales employee, and every college employee involved with this, and place them in a very small room and play TV ads, radio ads, have telemarketers call them constantly ...

I am inundated with unwanted interuptions constantly from companies that not only want to sell me something, they feel it is acceptable to lie about it and say they aren't selling anything, they are trying to help me! Honestly, I cannot think of a single time that someone made an attempt to sell me something that I actually needed! When I want something, I know where the store is, I know how to search for it on Amazon or Google, I am perfectly capable of buying what I need without assistance!

Magazine ads targeted to readers, like those in trade magazines, at least make some sense, but even those have a very low success rate. Less than 1% of direct marketing leads to a sale.

Trying to improve the hit rate, and even quadrupling that rate - which is not a reasonable goal - will only serve to cause an increase in attempts, and more annoyances.

Please, no.
