Help Me Figure Out What to Ask Google

google-logo1Next week, I’m venturing down to Mountain View to spend the better part of a day visiting the Googleplex and meeting with a bunch of Google folks involved with activities such as search and the Chrome browser. It should be a good time, and I plan to ask lots of questions.

Including, maybe, questions on your behalf. So if you’ve got any, shoot ’em my way via Comments, and if I have the opportunity to pose them to the right people, I will. (The last time I sought question from the Technologizer community, I ended up getting an interesting answer to one from Steve Jobs.)

One way or another, I’ll report back here on what I learn…

    What is the number one thing Google wishes users knew about Google’s web properties?

    How many users would it take to get Google to create an online gaming section?

    Why doesn’t Google buy Yahoo!?

    Where should I send the rest of the private information that I haven’t already given Google so they can just have it all? [couldn’t help myself, sorry]

    What areas of information does Google see as untapped that they’d love to see a computerized community form around so that they can better organize it for human consumption?

    Hi Harry – Please post about your trip at googleplex – I’d love to hear about it!

    What are your plans for Google Chrome in the future? How much is planned to be changed for the final release (example- interface)?

    Are you disappointed that the deal with Yahoo did not go through?

  4. Relyt Says:

    Also: How many Googlers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

  5. Taras Says:

    Ooh, you should ask what they plan to do with all the white space they so rigorously pushed for and received.

    Hi Harry.

    I would ask them how they intend to survive on such an unsafe business model as web advertising. They show their ads in my browser, but I control my browser and what is displayed (e.g. AdBlock) – as more and more people figure this out, they will be in big trouble. More here:

    Come back to TWiT soon!

    Best regards,

    What does Google have to say in response to Professor Hermann Maurer’s statements, especially about Chrome sending every visited URL to Google? See: .

    Will there ever be a real Google Toolbar for Chrome?
    What other major changes will the final release of Chrome see?

    Is Google becoming a creepier cult than scientology?
