I've been following this blog for a while, and this Googler have occassionally spoken of a secret project she's involved in. Niniane was an engineer on Google Desktop, and on Google Search Movie Reviews. She won a google founder's award, so obviously she is one of their best.

Although I've been following the blog, she never gives any evidence what her newest project is about. But today she mentions a meeting in which it seems her project was cited as the best project currently at Google. I would be very interested in knowing what this project is, will someone do some sniffing? Could it be Gdrive, Lighthouse?

C'mon, someone needs to Google Google on this project because its sounding like the other projects previously released are pale in comparison.

I think she's just expressing her feeling about Google.
"Google is the best company"

She's not just expressing her feelings about Google. She is working on a real project – you could read about it at niniane.blogspot.com/2005/12/b ... there she speaks of convincing Google executives to make a acquisition offer.

Quote:<<The project is still young, so we're relying more on slides than on a demo. I based the deck on the same slides that convinced half a dozen engineers to clamor to join my team, that convinced the company executives to make an acquisition offer, and that inspired my former VP to charter the project.>>

There was a post where she described how she got the idea, but I can't find it.

is it at all possible that she is just passionate about whatever she works on? or maybe she is simply a good con artist convincing us all that there is one more great thing on the horizon!

Well, you could just call her and ask her "did you get the email where I was talking about your project" and then she will answer "which project do you mean, the Google XYZ one?".

This is probably her who appeared in the Wired ad:

/pd – if you read her vague blog posts on the subject, you get the impression that the project is a fresh idea. She describes it as something that's potentially game changin. Anyway, I would not take her lightly, all the projects she have been behind in the past has been successful.

yeah its game chaning this is what I am reading...

"We've seen ACL system (I expect the Lighthouse is just Goole' ACL
system) " ??

if this includes Pvt RSS feeds based on ACL methods.. then it would be great that would be content channalization!!
