Google abandons URL shortening in Chrome

The new Instant Outlines toolkit. Over the last few days I’ve been tweeting and blogging like a fool about why importing and exporting outlines from one app to another isn’t enough. We can do much better. In the background I was working on a new toolkit for developers who want to be part of a network of outline producer and consumer apps based on OPML and web sockets. With source code of course, and a demo app to prove it works. All my outliners support the feature as well, it’s the basis for sharing outlines. This is my vision for an open ecosystem based on outlining. It’s a big part of what I dreamt of when I started UserLand in 1988.

Google opens Workspace to everyone

Google today announced that it is making Workspace, the service formerly known as G Suite (and with a number of new capabilities), available to everyone, including consumers on free Google accounts. The core philosophy behind Workspace is to enable deeper collaboration between users. You can think of it as the same Google productivity apps you’re already familiar with (Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, Chat, etc.), but with a new wrapper around it and deeper integrations between the different apps.
For individual users who want more from their Workspace, there will also be a new paid offering, though Google isn’t saying how much you’ll have to pay yet. With that, users will get access to “premium capabilities, including smart booking services, professional video meetings and personalized email marketing, with much more on the way.” We’ll likely hear more about this later this year. This new paid offering will be available
