Things Vanity Fair thinks were "wondered at" that probably were not wondered at.

From "O.K., Glass: Make Google Eyes" (The story behind Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s liaison with Google Glass marketing manager Amanda Rosenberg — and his split from his wife, genetic-testing entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki — has a decidedly futuristic edge. But, as Vanessa Grigoriadis reports, the drama leaves Silicon Valley debating emotional issues, from office romance to fear of mortality.")
Wojcicki must have wondered at the way a partnership built on love, pragmatism, and a shared philosophy about the way the world works can be trumped by the passion and excitement of a new relationship.

Wojcicki "is living on her own," the story says, "trying to manage the children...."

Poor thing.

Wojcicki is Julia then?

Geek love triangle. Meh.

Well, this explains why Google Glass left of the UV feature that would reveal semen stains on co-workers.

Arrgh, can't read the whole article. I don't care about their hair, or their clothes, or anything else.

Did Wojcicki actually wonder that or did the author of the piece?

I ask because one can't have much contact with actual humans to wonder that. Some relevant material is even published in Vanity Fair.

What a depressing article. These people have no morals, no humanity. Brin doesn't think "Do no harm" applies to how he considers his wife or children when wrecking his family.

Wojcicki has my respect for refusing to succumb to the FDA and AMA fascists. A person wants to have their DNA sequenced and possibly find out any heredity disease they might be susceptible to and that's the business of the government's or a trade association?
