In case those of you in the Bay Area are interested, Luke Swartz and I are
going to be talking at the IMUG meeting tomorrow at Google; for details see

*"Google* has millions of users around the world...but occasionally we mess
up. In this lighthearted talk, we'll explore some of Google's international
"bloopers", and show how to avoid similar mistakes in other web
applications. We'll also highlight how we solved a persistent blooper,
namely having UI strings like "Alice has added 3 contact to his address
book." Our Plural/Gender API allows complicated UI strings to change
appropriately, based on numbers and personal gender."
