OK, Google, I know you’re listening, but I don’t know whether to tell you to keep up the good work, or to stop taking every idea I have and turn it into a built in feature of your site!
Just a few weeks ago I was talking to a friend about how the LA Metro’s transit trip planning site hasn’t worked for months and that I was thinking of trying to pull together a replacement using the Google API. Next thing you know, Google Transit is in beta for Portland and coming to a city near you. This week I was making a mix CD for a few friends, and doing a lot of web research on the bands to include some facts in the liner notes. No sooner did I have the thought, “How come Google hasn’t gotten themselves into the online music scene” when (BAM!) Google started providing album information about popular artists.
I guess the only good idea left is to go work for Google.
