gmail: behind the scenes deleted scenes

“Google is running a unique viral video campaign aimed at creative GMail users that want to help put together a behind-the-scenes look at how a message gets to and from a GMail account. Just download the red envelope, come up with a creative idea, shoot it and upload it by August 13th.”

“throughout our research we have found numerous deficiencies and hostilities in Google’s approach to privacy that go well beyond those of other organizations. While a number of companies share some of these negative elements, none comes close to achieving status as an endemic threat to privacy.”

  1. Antonimus: the idea is that of the four above panels, the first and last include actual frames from the video, and the second and third are frames that should be in the video, but aren’t, because Google would prefer not to talk about a) the way they scan everyone’s mail in order to more precisely advertise to them, and b) how your mail is vulnerable to US government surveillance.

    It’s a little subtle.

    I had to make his fetchmail work with his sendmail on his laptop

    If you carefully examine the intercal package (which was not
    available for a month depsite emails about it being a 404), you will discover that . is in ESR’s PATH.

  3. @JBoy:

    Check here for past strips not featuring the characters:

    http://geekz.co.uk/lovesraymond/archive/eler-2006-prediction-outtake
    http://geekz.co.uk/lovesraymond/archive/bruce-schneier-facts

    Now, as far as “has nothing to do with Eric, Richard, or Linus” here you have strips that do feature the characters when they actually don’t have anything to do with the topic, except for some fictional relation. These are just two, there are a lot more examples.
