A Couple of Google Geeks Sitting Around Talking About Search: Video Interviews With Gundotra and Singhal!


Please see this disclosure related to me and Google.

Here’s the video of interviews BoomTown did with the two Google execs most responsible for the rollout of its real-time search and other new mobile search features announced yesterday.

That would be VP of Engineering Vic Gundotra and Google Fellow Amit Singhal, who is known as the master of ranking algorithm and search quality.

The smooth-talking Gundotra and the jumping-bean Singhal make an interesting pair of nerdish bookends, but are essentially pushing the same idea that Google is as innovative as ever.

Along with Google (GOOG) VP of Search Products & User Experience Marissa Mayer, the pair unveiled the updates at an event the search giant held in Silicon Valley.

Here is the video of the interviews (and here is another video I did at the event):

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.”
