And a very happy Friday to you, too.

Did you know that Indonesia is the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases? Mike's coworker is interviewed in the article.

And speaking of deforestation, Santa Cruz is, um, on fire - and has been since yesterday. Here in Mountain View it smells like BBQ and ash is occasionally drifting down from the sky. Eerie.

On the I'm-not-sure-if-this-is-good-or-bad-news front, Microsoft is shutting down its Books program. It was significantly smaller in scope than ours, but still a competitor - but I'm not sure that a competitor closing shop is a comforting sign. At least they're giving the files back to the publishers.
