The Story of Send: A Trip with Google’s Gmail
Most of us never think about what goes on behind the scenes of some of the most simple tasks we do on the internet today. Things like performing a search or sending an email have become so second nature to us that they may as well be on the same level as opening a door or making ramen (ha, college…).
A few weeks ago, Google posted a really interesting web piece dubbed, “The Story of Send” on their home page about what really goes into their search and Gmail services. Overviews of security measures, energy efficiency, data processing and more are chronicled in this little story so definitely check it out and be sure to take the quiz on ReggieNet!
(Side note: there are quite a few short videos associated with this story, and while they are very interesting and you should check some of them out, I’ll only be including info found in the text and pictures in the quiz.)
