100 Days, 100 Grand goes to Google

This week I’ve been in New York, in my other capacity as a freelance copywriter. Working for a special client: Google!

Google reception

I’m under NDA, so can’t talk much, except to say: the office is everything you thought it was. Fun design, playgrounds and ping-pong tables, free food everywhere. But most interesting is the building. It’s the old Port Authority Building  – at the time, New York’s most expensive real estate transaction ever – and it takes up a whole city block, as you’d expect.

But more interesting than that is what the building does. As a past housing for infrastructure, it’s where a large number of transatlantic telephone cabling and optic fibre enters the USA – the building was once home to a telephone exchange. Which means, of course, Google sits atop the fastest, broadest bundle of bandwidth anywhere in the world.

New book out: How to do Healthcare

My August self-challenge was to write up my thoughts on the healthcare sector, in the same little-book format as How to do Freelancing and How to do Life. One day clear of my Aug 30 deadline, both paperback (ISBN 978-1-912795-27-7) and Kindle editions are now available for order.

The next few books in my “How to do…” series will also involve public policy rather than private victory: planned titles include How to do Welfare and How to do Schools. There’ll be a break for How to do Fitness though.
