Godspeed, dear book
This Sunday is a special day. I am supposed to send all of the book to the publisher for them to start laying out the pages. Still, three things are missing:
1. The chapter on Cameroon, which is a story about Google.org and their philantropic work told straight from the African jungle. The publisher is saving a space, since I haven’t been there yet… But it’s all set up, and I am about to travel. Very exciting! And something I have not seen in any other books about Google.
2. A small thing here in Sweden, a sales meeting that I hope to be able to participate in, just to give the ”this is how it all works”-chapter some color. Hopefully this upcoming week.
3. A background interview with Google high-up Rachel Whetstone on the subject of Google and China. This interview has been postponed, hm, let’s see… five times. Yes, five times it is. Perhaps I am gullable, perhaps I should have gotten the hint by now, perhaps she has never intended to talk to me. I am not sure what to believe. But I am still hoping for this to happen. I am asking for fifteen minutes on the phone, and there has been no such fifteen minutes for six weeks…
