Conquering the world

What Would Google Do? got a nice bit of publicity in Croatia (I wasn’t so sure how good it would be when I saw the picture choices, but friends and Google translation say it’s OK).

What’s cool is that within a day, this yielded a book contract for a local edition with a Croatian publisher.

Now I wish I could get similar publicity anywhere in the Spanish-, Italian-, Swedish-, Arabic- speaking worlds.

    Remember me Jeff? Spanish journalist working on a book about tech and politics that asked you for an interview a few weeks ago? I was in New York and wrote an email saying I was interested in getting your perspective on the media environment and the 2008 presidential campaign. Got no response. Will be back in NY at the end of June, so maybe we could do it then.

  • I like your “10 commandments” retranslated from Croatian by Google. They have just a slight weirdness now. My favorite is number 5.

    Ten commandments

    1 focus on the users and the rest will come by itself.

    2 It is best to make one thing, but very, very good.

    3 It is better faster, but slower.

    4 Democracy on the Internet works.

    5 You do not have to be at their table to get a response.

    6 You can earn, and do not be evil.

    7 there is always more information.

    8 The need for information can cross all boundaries.

    9 can be serious and no suits.

    Perfect 10 is simply not good enough.

  • I want to express my appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this difficulty. Just after searching throughout the online world and seeing methods which were not beneficial, I assumed my life was done. Living without the presence of approaches to the problems you’ve fixed as a result of the site is a critical case, and those that might have adversely damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your web page. Your actual expertise and kindness in taking care of the whole lot was very helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a thing like this. I can at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the impressive and results-oriented guide. I won’t be reluctant to endorse the blog to any individual who would need tips about this issue.
