Google Cheese

Yes, this is decidedly cheesy: a microblogging app that’s intentionally buggy.  Full of holes, like it’s namesake, the cheese. For educational purposes. But I think they forgot something really important:

jarlsberg carlsberg

Yes, I know, proper pairing would be wine and cheese, but it doesn’t rhyme as well as Jarlsberg & Carlsberg. Besides, this way Google could use the tagline: Probably the Best Bugs in the World.

Strike for Your Beer

ad_carlsberg Unlimited beer @ the workplace?  What’s more, all free?  Certainly not in the US…

But apparently it’s a “fundamental privilege” at the Carlsberg factory in Denmark. Now that management tried to limit the free flow of beer, 800 workers went on strike….

The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company’s new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites.

The only restriction was "that you could not be drunk at work. It was up to each and everyone to be responsible," company spokesman Jens Bekke said.

The stakes are high.. after all, we’re talking about access to “probably the best beer in the world”.
