This is part of a conversation Thite and I were having bout Google.


Swapneel - If you want to work in a big company, learn how to hack Blub on Windows - http://swapneel.no-ip.info says:

Swapneel says:
pretty neat

Swapneel says:
beautiful example of wat joel spolsky was sayin in his microeconomics article

§ Hrishikesh | Whoa! says:
yea

§ Hrishikesh says:
and there's more

§ Hrishikesh says:
Google is buying fibre

§ Hrishikesh says:
loads of it

§ Hrishikesh says:
maybe they are making an alternate internet

§ Hrishikesh says:
one with better standards

Swapneel says:
huh

Swapneel says:
waddya mean an alt internet?

§ Hrishikesh says:
a network independent of the current internet

Swapneel says:
and...

§ Hrishikesh says:
to allow for extremely insane speeds

Swapneel says:
they wanna replace the current standards?

§ Hrishikesh says:
mostly for ur multimedia apps

Swapneel says:
very ambitious...doubtful whether itll succeed

Swapneel says:
hope it does

§ Hrishikesh says:
live vid streams n stuff

§ Hrishikesh says:
it'll prolly b free too

Swapneel says:
hmmm

Swapneel says:
interesting....

Swapneel says:
but i guess itll take easily 5-10 years at minimum, for it to become common like wat we have internet today

Swapneel says:
did u hear bout the google-sun alliance?

§ Hrishikesh says:
think so, u mite as well remind

Swapneel says:
lets c how MS responds

Swapneel says:
basically, they're gonna promote each other...

Swapneel says:
google will promote openoffice....ppl who dload jdk, will have an option of dloadin google deskbar, etc

§ Hrishikesh says:
I don't really like SUN

Swapneel says:
“Initially, the agreement will involve Sun giving those downloading its Star Office and Open Office word processing, database and spreadsheet software the option of downloading the Google search toolbar as well.
In the long term, however, I'm sure it will be the other way round - Google becoming the primary distribution network for Sun's desktop applications, with Java at the centre of it all.”

Swapneel says:
y not?

§ Hrishikesh says:
dunno, jlt

§ Hrishikesh says:
it has a hidden propoganda

§ Hrishikesh says:
something in it does not feel good

Swapneel says:
bout the hidden propaganda...who doesnt? google? ms? cisco?

Swapneel says:
but yea...i think ur opinion is based a lot due to java

Swapneel says:
i agree with java sucking big time....when compared to ruby, py, lisp, etc...

§ Hrishikesh says:
right now, google hasn't done nething to fuck itself, or da industry

Swapneel says:
but the fact remains, for average ppl, java rules

§ Hrishikesh says:
actually it does not matter

Swapneel says:
fucking urself and hidden propaganda is diff na? or u tryin to mean something else?

§ Hrishikesh says:
da problem with hidden propagandas is that eventually, u fuck and get fucked

§ Hrishikesh says:
unless ur M$

§ Hrishikesh says:
cause dey are desensitised

Swapneel says:
lol...neutered u mean

Swapneel says:
hahaha

§ Hrishikesh says:
euphematically speaking, yea

Swapneel says:
but its classical game theory....imagine how huge ibm wouldve been, if they werent stupid enuff and bill gates wasnt smart enuff with the DOS deal

Swapneel says:
someone's gotta lose out


Lemme know what u guys think. Comments are welcome.

PS: Joel Spolsky's article on MicroEconomics is a MUST READ.
