One great piece of advice I got from Suzy Hay now Head of Business Development, iAd at Apple, back in the day when we were both working for Yahoo!, was that she suggested I made sure to have a one on one with my manager every now and then to specifically talk about what she or he wanted me to do.

You will have read the news that Google started a world wide campaign to inspire countries to legalize same sex partnership rights.
The Huffington Post writes “Google launched a new campaign on Saturday supporting the legalization of same-sex marriage around the world. …the initiative, called “Legalize Love,” debuted in Poland and Singapore, and, “will focus on places with homophobic cultures, where anti-gay laws exist,” though it will operate in every city in which Google has an office.”
