Lengedary computer programmer, Peter Weinberger, now works at Google as a software engineer. Unix geeks might already know that Weinberger is the the "W" in the AWK programming language named for its developers. In an interview (free access) with Laurianne McLaughlin from IEEE's Security & Privacy magazine, Weinberger talks Google, future search, and privacy.
From the interview:
Security and Privacy: What are the biggest technology challenges for Google today?
Weinberger: Scale is the problem. Our business grows rapidly. That means every year, a lot of the technology decisions made a year ago don?t look so good any more. Exponential growth is a very pleasant problem but requires a lot of work.
