article imageGoogle barge becomes Google garbage

By Walter McDaniel     Aug 1, 2014 in Technology
"Google barges" was a large ship event meant to float about and showcase projects such as Google Glass. Now one boat was bought by an unknown owner and is allegedly being turned into scrap.
Google intended the barges, which were large boats stacked four stories high with shipping containers, as a place where people could climb aboard and learn about their technology. Hype built since Google authorities were keeping details under tight secrecy. Eventually interest wanted and the project fell out of the public eye.
Eventually the project fell out of favor within the company itself. Mangers decided that revealing details about their massive computer network would be much more effective in the long run. As such barges are now being sold off or moved into storage areas for later plans. In the case of this one they decided to sell it off.
Ending the barge project marks a turn in focus for Google as a company. Recently they have worked on providing showcases of Google glass for technology students. Developing nations are also being focused on by the company, such as India. Finally they are focusing on street art projects in addition to their technological promotion to build a new fan base.
