Google Factory Tour, Take Two

By - May 19, 2005

PorncookieThe agenda looks good. I’m listening to Marissa Mayer right now, the agenda:

10:15 am – 12:00 pm Progress in Research and Ads

Marissa Mayer – (Director, Consumer Web Products)

Peter Norvig – (Director, Engineering Search Quality)

Q&A

Break

12:00 – 12:45 pm Lunch

12:45 – 2:00 pm Opportunities Today

Jonathan Rosenberg – (Product Management)

Jeff Huber – (VP Engineering)

Dave Girouard – (General Manager, Enterprise)

Q&A

Break

2:00 – 2:45 pm Future Directions

Alan Eustace – (VP Engineering & Research)

Marissa Mayer – (Director, Consumer Web Products)

Sergey Brin – (Co-Founder & President, Technology)

2:45 – 3:45 pm Q&A – Eric Schmidt and Sergey Brin

3:45 – 4:30 pm Product Demos

“Future Directions” should be interesting. Marissa had a funny overview of how the engine works, including introducing an engineer who handles porn spam. The image at left is from her presentation. So far, pretty basic stuff, but still interesting. Peter Norvig is starting just now.

The Webcast is here, FYI.

    I would like to ask Mr. Brin why Google’s business development group seems to be ignoring Millisecond Publishing Company’s repeated overtures to license to Google access to the world’s most complete, academically-sourced,fully interconnected, digital resource for family history research.

    Thanks for that John – I really enjoyed it. Could you tell me if there are any webcasts for the other topics?
