Last year's Google Factory Tour – did they just rename this to Press Day? – was also about the same length:

Michael Fagan [PersonRank 3]

16 years ago #

I doubt the real value of this 'press day,' it's for the largely uninformed press (ah it's starting now)... the only thing we'll probably get is some broad "we're cool" stuff and some very basic product announcment info.

the real stuff goes on in blogs and IM, and people actually talking in person, to regular people that work there

I think all of this stuff on "create remember share" stuff is leading up to the GDrive.

He is talking about putting as much things as possible online, so people can share wotever they create and then use search to organise the whole thing.

Utills [PersonRank 10]

16 years ago #

So some predictions before they make the announcement. what do u guys think they will announce?

My thoughts :

- They are talking about sharing content (personal content) across different mediums so some sort of drive like the GDrive could be announced.
- They are bigging up the mobile space where they have made a lot of progress and it is possible they offer a much more integrated solution for mobiles that runs mostly locally but uses the web to transfer data.
- Google Purchases – A progression of Google Base – Rather than a direct challenge to ebay, something much more service based than product based.

Good point. I wonder how they decide that.

BTW, from the press release:

----------------------------------------------------------------

Google Co-op Beta

Google Co-op beta is a community where users can contribute their
knowledge and expertise to improve Google search for everyone.
Organizations, businesses, or individuals can label web pages relevant
to their areas of expertise or create specialized links to which users
can subscribe.

Once a user has subscribed to a provider's content, all of that
provider's labels and subscribed links are added to the user's
search results for relevant queries. These contributions serve as meta
information that helps Google's search algorithms connect users to
the most relevant information for their specific query. Users
interested in contributing can get started at www.google.com/coop.

For example, a doctor can label web pages related to arthritis, and
users who subscribe to that doctor's information will receive options
at the top of the results for more specific information such as
"treatment," "symptoms," or "for health professionals" when
they enter a relevant query.

As a first step, Google has worked with partners to annotate web pages
related to health and city guides and to offer dozens of subscribed
links to specialized content such as restaurant and movie information.
Going forward, the broader online community will begin building out new
topic areas and subscribed links to help improve the way people find
and discover information online.

Users can subscribe to content and providers at
www.google.com/coop/directory. Google Co-op is available today on all
English language Google domains including Australia, Canada, New
Zealand, and the United Kingdom

----------------------------------------------------------------

However, at this time http://www.google.com/coop and http://www.google.com/coop/directory are still both dead.

So, is Google Co-op a way for sites to gain priority in the organic listings through search results and subscriptions?

/pd I think that there are two significant things that we will see with Google Notebook (bear in mind that none of us actually know how this thing will work etc):

* It is not actually bookmarking. You it more like saving. Saving whatever you like. It is a definate mashup between Gmail Drafts / Bookmarks as Tony noted. It looks from the UI that they took stuff from Google Pages to me, but whatever I am sure the UI will be slick. You can save pics You can save notes of your own (to dos). You can save links. It is more like one of the newer bookmarking sites (that allow lost of media formats) than del.icio.us I think.

* del.icio.us is popular amongst you and me. And probably everyone reading this entry. Google Notebook may have appeal to other people who are not so technically enabled. Especially if it was integrated into Gmail at sometime (which there seem to be no plans for atm) it would get more people saving snippets and links and images online.

They are my thoughts anyway, I think if it is like I expect it will be really useful and I will probably use it over del.icio.us. It however largely depends on the UI and how the "plugin" works. That will determine its utility.

http://www.itweek.co.uk/vnunet/news/2155794/google-emphasises-search says in the last paragraph:
"The new Google Co-op service includes search results from a list of select partners who for instance list restaurants or information about movies.

The search engine at launch will partner with six sites including Open Table, *Digg*, People magazine, Wine Spectator and Fandango. Partners are included free of charge.

Listing search results provided by qualifying partners will make for more accurate search, Mayer claimed."

Google has not innovated since 1996, when its search was developed. Let's see what they've done since:

Google Pack blows
Google Video blows
Google Base blows
Google Talk blows
Google Finance blows
Froogle blows
Oh wait. Gmail. That was good marketing, I'll grant them that. For an email website. Wow.

Did anyone record the audio of the webcast? Or does anyone have a link to the video if they have released it on Google Video?

I would like to listen to it again, since the first time you often miss things.

Huh, that's weird. No one in Mainland China has searched for "Democracy" in the last three years...

On the Google.com front-page right now:

"New! Just launched: Google Trends and the latest Google Desktop."

No mention of Google Co-op, but then again it seems to be mainly targeted at developers (at least the "do something with it" part).

Does anyone know how to play only a certain part of the webcast? I can play it, but have to start at the beginning...

Nate, maybe such a search would get blocked by the Chinese gov't before it reaches Google.com servers in the US?

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

Nate – there are also no results for "democracy" when you restrict the search to e.g. Spain. Maybe the numbers of Chinese users searching for an English term is below the treshold Google applies?

Definition from "Labs" and "Beta". All products is what developed in labs (http://labs.google.com/) now have "Labs" logo (not beta). Exception is Google Video and WebAccelerator.

Phillip probably you're right, "democracia" ("democracy" in spanish) has results in Trends. No news BTW.

Pau Tomàs, Google News doesn't have Spanish version. For it you can't see any related news.

Ya know what? I gave the new GDS a try...and it's already gone. I have a pretty good PC, with a lotta power and memory and HD space. And when I ran GDS it went from a Porsche to a...well, a tiny car.

Pass.

The transcribed answer to your Q philipp:

"Under Chinese Law we are required to filter some of the content, on our .cn site not on .com site. From time to time, as you would expect, with any authority you have conversations about how that law should be applied in a particular circumstance"

http://www.google.com/coop/docs/guide_subscribed_links.html here anybody can also let people subscribe to him. I think that's why they made this profile thing. So it's not only digg.

Does the Google Co-Op program remind anyone else of the del.icio.us service?

I don't know how I feel about the notebook, it sounds like they're just taking Apple's "stickies" and making it more annoying.

Good coverage though, I'm glad I came across this. I posted some thoughts about Google's developments and the "Epic 2015" movie at the link below. Maybe the producers of the film were right?

google, google, google:

How come the graphs at the top follow the same line but the 1st of the three bars at the bottom are different? Must have something to do with the "several approximations" used when computing the results...

Try this one – you'll get slightly different lines on top (rounding errors, I s'pose):

google -nothingxyz1, google -nothingxyz2, google -nothingxyz3

I think Google Notebook is disappointing; I'd expected more / better.

There's too much confusion in between their offerings now, IMHO. There's Blogger and Pages for publishing, there's the whole Bookmarks deal as well, which is pretty much being ignored.

My full list of issues / problems is here: http://www.dhirajgupta.com/Home/tabid/36/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/71/Google-Notebook-sucks.aspx

I think Blogger/Google Pages should be combined somehow. As a single place to create websites. Along with a service like Flickr, (see discussion here.. http://blogoscoped.com/forum/33581.html) to create photo websites/blogs.
And then Google notebook which can publish to one of these services.
