Inside Google Enterprise

"Google Enterprise." Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn't it? Well, for a few years now, we've been building products for businesses large and small based on Google technology. We're pleased to announce the launch of this, the Google Enterprise Blog - the official blog for our enterprise business. We'll share our thoughts and ideas about enterprise technology, present best practices and tips for developers, and perhaps announce something new now and again.

The Google Enterprise team has a growing list of products that you'll be able to learn more about right here. Most of our team is focused on -- can you guess? -- enterprise search. We have a fundamental belief that it ought to be simple and easy -- just like Google.com. People are people - they don't turn into information scientists when they arrive at work in the morning. Providing simple, fast, and accurate search across all the information in your company can have a profound effect on your business.

But the technology that powers search inside a company is very different. That's why our growing team of search engineers is entirely focused on delivering a quality search experience to business users around the world. Of course, we're never done -- there are always ways to make the search experience more efficient, more comprehensive, or just more fun.

If you have any comments or suggestions about how we can make our enterprise products better, please contact us here.

BJJ Nationals on track

All is proceeding well for the upcoming nationals. we have teams coming from all states as well as new Zealand. it should be our best yet - with an earlier start to the day and pre-registration allowing for the draw to be done well prior to the 20th August. Bob bass's visit from the states is all organized - and he is looking forward (as am I) to running the sundasy sessions at my school in Geelong, after the competition. if anyone is planning on competing, and has not yet registered, make sure to have your forms handed over to your instructor this week - for collation and posting by weeks end.
best wsihes to everyone,

John B Will
