Google: Ten Golden Rules

Writing about web page http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10296177/site/newsweek/

Google's ten golden rules are an interesting read to get a feel for what makes Google tick. My favourite:

Encourage creativity. Google engineers can spend up to 20 percent of their time on a project of their choice. There is, of course, an approval process and some oversight, but basically we want to allow creative people to be creative. One of our not-so-secret weapons is our ideas mailing list: a companywide suggestion box where people can post ideas ranging from parking procedures to the next killer app. The software allows for everyone to comment on and rate ideas, permitting the best ideas to percolate to the top.

In light (ba boom) of the fact that we put up our Christmas decorations this weekend, here is an amazing video sequence of some Christmas lights by a mad American.

This has been going around for a while now but you might not have seen it…enjoy.

Some people have claimed it is fake some how, but the ever reliable Snopes says it is real

PS. Make sure you watch it with sound, it is pointless without the music
