GMail, The Bailout and Bill Gates

Today seems like a slow link day, but we will persevere.
Technology: One of the reasons I like Gmail is that Google is committed to bringing us optionally installable changes quickly through their labs program.  Today they brought out Multiple Inboxes.  It is a misnomer in that you still only have one inbox. But it will allow you to have multiple windows into your (single) inbox open on the same screen. You control the content via search strings; it is Google after all.  For those who use labels or who manage everything from their inbox, this could be a truly helpful new option.

Video: One of the places that I like to go to when I have 15 or 20 minutes to spare is the TED Conference. TED 2009 is going on now and there was a lot of talk about Bill Gates’ presentation yesterday on malaria. The video shows a new side to Bill Gates and bugs.  A couple of other TED talks from past years that are exceptional are Jill Bolte-Taylor, Al Gore and Hans Rosling.

Bailout: The first simple explanation of the implosion of AIG. And a simpler Calvin & Hobbes version.

Technology: This cartoon of how the Google Chrome logo was born made me giggle.
