Yes, yes and yes.

"In some ways, they have the biggest fraud problem on the Internet. Publishers, online merchants, search engine optimizers, content farmers and everyone else are trying to drive traffic to their sites. One of the best ways to do so is to juice your rank in Google , and it’s often cheaper to do so by breaking Google than it is by building something good and promoting your site honestly. I feel for the Googlers whose job it is to stay one step ahead of all of those people — they’re losing the war."

"Being an entrepreneur is not about being in love with an idea, it's about being in love with running a company."

"It’s all stuff that can be dismissed as 'inside baseball' and not what typical people care about. But typical people do care, do get puzzled, as Segal was as he explored this case. And what Google ranks tops can have a terrible impact on real consumers."

“There was a time when three people at Google could build a world-class product and deliver it, and it is gone,” Mr. Schmidt said. “So I think it’s absolutely harder to get things out the door. That’s probably our biggest strategic issue.”

"Let's say that I am someone who is generally very modest but I really want to share an achievement of mine. I tell you: "I hate to brag, but my dissertation defense kicked ass." I am not lying. I am telling you two truths. One is that I do hate to brag and two is that my dissertation defense went extremely well. The fact that I am in that moment bragging is an exception to a rule (hence my "but-head"). Sure, you can retort, "then don't [brag]" but, no offense, that would make you a butthead."

"For our anguish, they provided us each with a Pie-Oh-My concrete (one part real pumpkin pie, one part vanilla custard, smashed together) and a $10 gift card. Obviously, they should have provided us a lifetime of free Shack Burgers and a wall of remembrance, but we were too humble to suggest anything of that ilk."

"It would be nice if we all stood behind our words instead of erecting walls of disclaimers in front of them. But it’s also human to want to mitigate people’s reactions when we say something negative. The phrases, in this sense, operate as almost a fingers-crossed superstitious protection: 'If I say ‘no offense,’ maybe he won’t punch me!'"

"Newsflash to the mainstream media: just like you have actual human beings making you work, so does the Internet! A little respect for the people providing your content would be nice! I understand that ownership is a dubious concept these days, and that I'm claiming ownership of a series of clips that I never owned in the first place, but an idea is an idea. They're so hard to come by and so, so valuable."

"Without a conductor, this train ride is going to end in a fiery crash of discontent. I'm not telling people to get off; I'm just letting you know that if you stay on, you'll be a passenger on a train running on the fumes of irrational hope and unfulfilled promise. If you insist on riding it for the rest of the season, I highly recommend you stay firmly ensconced in the bar car."

We don't do turkey in my house for Thanksgiving, but if we did, I'd follow Salt & Fat's advice

"For Murdoch, I have to imagine there is also something personal about this project. I’m sure he is furious that he has so far failed to extend his record of success and dominance, unbroken in other media, into the digital world."

Yes, you've seen it already. Go watch it again. (Also, where can we see the short film this is part of?)

I finally saw the movie this weekend, and had no idea while I was watching it that they were played by one guy. I just assumed that Hollywood was able to find (or genetically engineer?) a pair of beautiful Harvard-esque rowers like that.

"She is a celebrity, not an artist, and cannot expected to be the latter, no matter how much it would make sense for her to say something already on her fifth album." (I still kinda liked her on Letterman last night.)

Jason's blog post makes me want to watch 2001 again. Wait! I have an idea: the Kottke.org film festival!

This is the second piece of highly produced content that I've seen coming out of Google in the last two days. Somethings' happening over there.

I heard her on Fresh Air a month or two ago, and not only is she Patti Fucking Smith, but the book sounds great. I haven't listened to this yet, but it's queued up.

"But I am now ensconced at the press table. Cal Reid from Publishers Weekly is to my left. There is a thick rope separating the press area from the fancy tables. The rope is not the kind you use for jumping, nor for hanging a man. Although I suspect that if some author gets better tonight, there’s always the prospect for eccentric violence."

I like this advice he gives about the answers to obvious questions like "do you need to raise money?" "Think about them, write down your answers, and then refer back to them as you have conversations with advisors, potential investors, and even your customers."
