Having spent almost 20 years working on the web, it is something I strongly believe and am invested in. Therefore, when I see or am part of initiatives that I think will help developers and the web platform out there, it makes me very excited! And last week I got very reminded about how good that thing can be.
Posts in the "Google" Category
Last week we held our big Google I/O developer conference, and I thought I’d share links to the main announcements and links to the talks.
I’ve just made a very interesting move at Google, and would love to tell you more about it!
I’ve taken a little hiatus from writing here, so here goes with the first post of the year! From Gmail reaching 1 billion users to the web, VR and Android Studio.

It’s been a busy last 2 weeks and a ton of things I want to cover: from work with startups through developer content on YouTube to the Google OnHub router and Android Wear working on iOS. Here we go!

A crazy amount of exciting things are happening in the Google world and communities, so I’m excited to share the latest!

Summer has come here to the northern hemisphere and the world keeps on spinning with interesting things. 🙂
I’ve spent my last time organizing a week for mentors and startups this fall in Finland for the Google Developers Launchpad program, which is outlined below, and we also have news on handling Revenge Porn in Search, real-time data in Trends, a peak into Google’s networks and more!
This is part 6 in the Last Week at Google series.
Lots of things happening both in the world of Google and in the technology sector as well – and that goes especially for the Nordics region! In this blog posts I outline a few of the events, and at the end I always have a quick list of interesting things – basically, scroll down fast if you just want links right away. Otherwise, you are more than welcome to read the entire thing. 🙂
This is part five in the Last Week at Google series.
This is part four in the Last Week at Google series.
Last week Google I/O took place and there were a lot of exciting announcements, ideas and releases! I’d like to shine some light on two of the most visionary ones from Google’s ATAP (Advanced Technology and Projects) group: Project Jacquard and Project Soli.
Part three of the Last Week at Google series, this time delivered from the headquarter in Mountain View, California.
In my role at Google, I met a ton of people interested in what we are working at, what’s happening, how to get involved and learn more etc. Therefore, with this as the first post, I’ll be blogging about things that happened last week at Google.
Time to announce my new job: I’m joining Google! My role will be Developer Relations Program Manager for the Nordics.
About a week and a half ago I was happy to get an invite to Google’s new take on e-mail: Google Inbox. The idea is to make it much simpler for users to deal and bundle e-mails they get.
I take turns using a few different mobile phones, which is quite interesting to the see pros and cons of each platform. I’ve had a few experiences with Android lately, so I thought I’d share a couple of tips: apps failing to update, and using any music file for ringtones and notifications.
Time again for a number of interesting, entertaining or otherwise all-round good links I recommend taking a look at!
As always, there is so much discussion going on about HTML5 and video on the web, and I thought I’d suggest a solution to it all.
Yesterday Google announced they’re dropping H.264 video codec support in Google Chrome. Whatever you think about this, it’s an interesting move and I thought I’d express my thoughts on it.
Instead of presenting a certain technology or approach, my idea with this post is to get some discussion and feedback about iOS vs. Android.
Seasons come and seasons go; life turns in a constantly changing manner. But, as after every summer, I’m back and I long to write for you! 🙂
I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I’m saying something really really important has happened for the future of the Open Web. Finally, it looks like there might be a solution to the video codecs and patent encumbered alternatives we have been dealing with.
There has been discussions about allowing CSS to help developers create smooth transitions of CSS properties for elements, and it’s something being specified in CSS3 in W3C CSS Transitions Module Level 3. Here I’m going to show you how to implement it in Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari & Opera.
More and more services around us focus on where we physically are located at the moment, and how we can be assisted in the best fashion depending on that. Today I’d like to introduce the geolocation possibilities we developers have, and also play around a little with Google maps.
In our world of developing web sites, it is always interesting with web browser statistics, and how some people view them. Pair that with a new player in the market and various opinions about its success.
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of being invited by Mozilla to Prague to, amongst other things, discuss the future of Firefox.
Yesterday, Google outed a very bold move of theirs, and then followed up with a statement that, to me, meant even more. We’re talking Google Chrome Frame and Google Wave deciding not to support Internet Explorer.
Wow. I can’t really believe these are my first words of blogging again in almost two months. It always feels a bit funny getting back in the saddle, but once there, I’m as happy as a butterfly on a flower!
For anyone focusing on SEO and duplicate content indexing, i.e. the same page indexed with several URLs, thus having a negative page rank impact, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft now all support the canonical relation on
Ever felt that you have had the need to enhance your web browser, or the functionality of some web site you frequently visit? Here I will explain how to do that.
The end of 2008 is near, and I felt it was time to summarize the passed year.
Ok, time for an admission: I now, honestly, own an iPhone.
One browser to rule them all, one Google to find them, one extension to bring them all, and in the darkness (Redmond?) bind them.
I just thought I’d mention that I have a new visitor record for this web site. 🙂
The web is buzzing! Something which was due to come, sooner or later, has happened. Google is launching their own web browser today: Google Chrome.
I’m back. 🙂
Since Gmail released a new version a month or so ago, it crashes several times every day for me.
As promised in my @media Ajax – Journeys and stories post (now updated with pictures!), this one will focus on the presentations during the conference.
I thought it would be interesting to give some examples of how some terms, from my posts, are ranked in Google; both funny and more serious ones. It seems like I know How to get a good search engine ranking. 🙂
For some reason it just hit me that it really was a long time ago since I used any specific color for visited links in a web site. How so?
Just playing around on the Internet, I’m finding out that Google has implemented yet another outstanding, supremely cool feature, this time for Google Maps. Now, you can get virtually explore neighborhoods at street-level virtually with Street View.
