Oops…Google is Broken

This is troubling. Using multiple browsers (to ensure it wasn’t my issue) has turned up an error this morning with Google. It seems that *every* search result is a “…site may harm your computer.”

The outcome is I’m unable to use Google. I know no one is perfect — and that Google is still probably in “beta” — but all of our newfound dependencies on the cloud make any hiccups like this a big problem. Especially, when like I am right now, have a deadline in 7 minutes (we’re starting a podcast and four of us will be on it so I cannot delay). Google’s Marissa Mayer publishes their mea culpa (and no, clicking that link will not take you to malware!).

    And I found no easy way to disable it in preferences.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
