So I missed a week of the Ring Cycle between Yahoo, MSFT, AOL, Newscorp, and Google. Wow. Somehow I think I’ll survive. Things I found interesting last week:

I read about this story while in Europe. EU wants to slash search data retention period to six months
Google Apps – oops.
Fred on a new path to liquidity.
Rich on new crawlers in a brave new world.
The Journal on Sheryl Sandberg at Facebook.
I find this move by Google highly laudable: Google Comissioned To Monitor Illegal Amazonian Deforestation
