Liveblogging the Google Confab at 10 am PT: Searchtastic?

Please see this disclosure related to me and Google.

google search(1)

BoomTown will be motoring the MINI–top up, it’s pouring rain here!–down to Silicon Valley this morning to liveblog a “search event” that Google is holding at the Computer History Museum.

Last week, Microsoft (MSFT) unveiled some new features for its Bing search service, so turnabout is fair play for Google (GOOG).

Lots of news is promised, which is likely to mean a bunch of new features, partners and more to be announced (perhaps yet another acquisition or two?), showing that the search giant can keep innovating from its lofty perch.

Included in the event will be Google VP of Search Products & User Experience Marissa Mayer, VP of Engineering Vic Gundotra and Google Fellow Amit Singhal, who is known as the master of ranking algorithm and search quality.

Liveblogging begins at 10 am PT, with video to follow.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
