  1. The main discussion today gave me an insight into what non-U.S. listeners must feel like much of the time, since none of these services exist anywhere near me. And that was true even when I lived in the 2nd largest city in the state a few years ago. I guess Midwestern cities are still “flyover” to most companies, unless it’s Chicago?
    It was still interesting in a way, but more of an academic/theoretical discussion for me than one that had anything to do with my life. Stupid small town living sometimes…

  2. Thank you, Google, for your corporate restructure. I can now refer to the gaggle of google products as “Alphabet’s soup”.
