Google and the Messerschmitt

1983 – Dunkin Donuts

Eric Schmidt is the Google CEO. Call him Mr. Schmidt.

“Messrs.” is the abbreviation for messieurs, now used chiefly as the plural of Mr. (Mister).

Therefore, Eric Schmidt is Messr. Schmidt.

Messr. Schmidt is a homonym for Messerschmitt.

On June 16, 2015 I ended that day’s blog entry with, “This must be all for now, as I am being strafed by the Messerschmitts.” I later explained in the June 18, 2015 blog entry that the Messerschmitt attack of June 16th involved “blinking power”, miniature brown-outs. “You couldn’t exactly call them brown-outs for they just ‘blinked’ for less than a second.” [1]

The point in the above is that when the term “Messerschmitt attack” originated, in my mind it had nothing to do with Google. Then, only yesterday, while researching Google, I was amazed to make the connection between Messerschmitts and Messr. Schmidt, CEO of Google.

When I write this blog each morning, I am like the “time to make the donuts” guy from the early 1980s ad campaign (see hopefully video clip at top). Me at around 3 am is, “Time to write the blog… Time to write the blog…” The idea of “Messerschmitt attack” arrived in my mind through the fog of grogginess on June 16th, in connection with two “blinking brown-outs.” It was, “(Groan) What now?” Then, “Must be a Messerschmitt attack.”

Recently in this area a “smart grid” was installed. “Smart grid” uses computer-based remote control and automation for utility electricity delivery systems. An “improvement” is energy efficiency on the electricity grid and in the energy users’ homes and offices. “Much in the way that a ‘smart’ phone these days means a phone with a computer in it, smart grid means ‘computerizing’ the electric utility grid… A key feature of the smart grid is automation technology that lets the utility adjust and control each individual device or millions of devices from a central location… The number of applications that can be used on the smart grid once the data communications technology is deployed is growing as fast as inventive companies can create and produce them.” [2]

So an “inventive company” like Google could have already added “applications” to the local “smart grid.”

It is known that Messr. Schmidt (Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google), as a member of President Barack Obama’s 2008 transition advisory board, advised rewarding renewable energy and, over time, replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy. [3] Disregarding the possibly controversial issue of renewable energy, the fact remains that Messr. Schmidt is aligned with the energy conservation side. A “smart grid” had recently been installed in my area. “Inventive companies” like Google develop “applications” which can be used by the “smart grid.” Soon after “smart grid” was installed, I began to suffer “blinking brown-outs.” This always happened in tandem with my running the air-conditioner. Perhaps I was closer to the truth than I realized when, on June 16th, I attached the label “Messerschmitt attack” to the two “blinking brown-outs” of that day.

Then, on June 18th and continuing since, the Messr. Schmidt Limbo for users of the open-source Mozilla Firefox web browser began to be noticed. This was the Messerschmitt Attack of the Googleapis, as described in the June 20, 2015 blog entry. “Waiting for youtube” and “Waiting for googleapis” messages kept waiting and waiting and the Firefox browser was hijacked thereby and never reached its intended destination.

“Rolling blackouts”, an intentionally engineered electrical power shutdown where electricity delivery is stopped for non-overlapping periods of time over different parts of the distribution region, were used during the California electricity crisis of the early 2000s. The “rolling blackouts” were almost always triggered by unusually hot temperatures during the summer, which caused a surge in demand due to heavy use of air conditioning. The “rolling blackouts” were a way to conserve energy. [4] “Blinking brown-outs” happened to Ersjdamoo coincident to use of air-conditioning and recent installation of “smart grid” which utilizes “applications” developed by “inventive companies” like Google, whose CEO Messr. Schmidt advised newly-elected Barack Obama about rewarding renewable energy and, over time, replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy.
