Nate Silver took part in an Authors@Google interview/Q&A and covered a variety of topics including his book, the FiveThirtyEight blog, faulty polling, and whether pro football teams should be going for it in “4th & 2” scnearios. The whole session lasts just under an hour, but we definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a way to kill some time this afternoon.

Google hits the Grand Canyon: Google’s Street View is hitting the trails of the Grand Canyon. A car can’t fit down those tiny trails, though, so Google came up with backpack-mounted cameras. ”Any of these sort of iconic, cultural, historical locations that are not accessible by road is where we want to go,” said Ryan Falor, product manager at Google. source

Oops! Google hit “send” a little too early yesterday, causing a massive market blunder.

In a matter of minutes, the search-engine giant shed almost $20 billion in market value when R.R. Donnelley & Sons, the company in charge of its financial filing, published Google’s disappointing earnings report hours ahead of schedule.

The announcement would have weighed on the stock anyway, but releasing the news when markets were open spurred a frenzy of bearish trading. Stock market operators have built-in circuit breakers for shares that swing wildly, but Google reportedly requested that Nasdaq freeze its shares, which the platform did briefly.

“(Google) doing a Felix Baumgartner,” tweeted Joe Donohue, a professional investor using the handle @UpsideTrader.

The precision and care that must go into protecting a publicly traded company’s market value is nothing short of amazing, and not just because of the competition — as some poor folks at Google are now reflecting on, one mistake can cause a big hurt.

Iran unblocks Gmail after politicians complain loudly

  • last week In the wake of protests regarding the anti-Islam video on YouTube, Iran blocked Gmail access, reportedly because they couldn’t figure out a way to block HTTPS access to YouTube without blocking it to other services. YouTube has been banned in Iran since 2009, but users have found ways around the ban.
  • this week Politicians in Iran complained so loudly about the Gmail ban that the block was turned off. Users in the country said that Gmail started working again last night. The lesson: Don’t screw with our inboxes. source
