My Communications prof recently asked my class to deliver a persuasive presentation on our topic of choice. I decided to use this opportunity to flesh out my thinking on recommendation engines, a concept I explored a few weeks earlier (See Data Mining: Because You’re Worth it).
The product I came up with is called Google Life. I pretended to be the “VP of Strategic Asset Development” (whatever that means) at Google, presenting the new product to Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and the rest of the Google Board (otherwise known as my classmates at MIT Sloan).
Don’t mind the financial projections — they’re completely made up.
