Innovation: Google Strives To Makes the World's Information Useful...And Less Embarrassing

If you have a Gmail account, you should take the time to go through the Labs section of "Settings" area. They have oodles of little add-ons that you can enable to make your Gmail-ing experience a better one. One of them, however, is a bit odd. "Mail Goggles" is for those who may be drunk-typing late at night. Pat O’Brien may want to enable this feature. 

What interested me most about these add-on settings is that they are the result of a culture of innovation at Google. Could you imagine trying to get "Mail Goggles" approved to be developed in your organization? We need more of this, especially during the tough times we are or about to face in this economy.
