    Lessons:

    1. Don't pry into people's personal lives..........particularly their homes.
    2. Don't lose trust.
    3. Don't try to be bigger than your intellect.
    4. Don't assume that the World is just like the USA.............it's bigger as it happens

    The scumbags are in trouble in at least 30 countries for their collection of wireless node data.......I now hear that these data are available to criminals (or was that just Google staff?)

    I see some mileage there
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Actually, in the case of Wave, it was a lack of people adopting it.

    For group projects and teamwork communications it was pretty good, probably ahead of its time.

    The other issues you mention, we'll wait and see. What are those countries going to do, block access? The GOOG (the Borg) will just close physical presence in those countries, loss of jobs, loss of an internet tool, I'm sure the elected politicians (criminals) will go for that.

    China will collapse before Google.

    Good riddance.

    Im surprised more people aren't trolling knol and google-code just to see more of their R&D being knocked off and canceled.

    Didn't I read somewhere that they were talking of making it open source?
