The Economist piece

There's a story about me in The Economist, which is very flattering.

It has a couple misleading points, though, which I feel the need to clarify. Mostly about Google: I didn't "hate every minute" I was at Google (just some of them). I wasn't there "less than a year." (It was a year and eight months). I don't think Google tackles problems with "brute force." I think they're best at tackling known problems, but they do so very cleverly.
