Bravo, Google!

Stay where you are. Keep doing what you’re doing, just do it a little better than others”. Believe it or not – this simple advice really works, and I had a chance to see it in action today. Let me ask you this, “Can you come up with any innovation for the time interval between the moment you pressed the button Send in your email client and the moment when the send process actually begins”? No? And Microsoft couldn’t, even though MS Outlook is probably still the most popular email client. But Google found a way to use this time interval “a little better than others”.

BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/09 -- The US oil and coal lobby has effectively killed any chance of a fair, ambitious or binding deal at the Copenhagen climate change summit in December, author, PR consultant and climate policy watchdog Jim Hoggan said Thursday. "Reports coming out of the current talks in Barcelona are incredibly depressing," said Hoggan, author of the new book Climate Cover-up. "One party after another keeps standing up explaining why it's out of the question that the world will achieve a serious climate change agreement this year. Everyone has a different rationale for this failure, but it's increasingly clear that responsibility rests at the feet of an old-energy lobby that is determined to stall any regulations that reduce the worldwide use of increasingly dangerous fossil fuels." "This effort has been apparent for a long time if you ... (more)
