Google's Social Networking Monster: Code Name "Maka-Maka"

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2007 at 9:29 AM


From deep inside the dark heart of the Googleplex comes word of an earth-shattering secret ... wait for it: a code name! But not just any code name, this is a secret, leaked code name. "Maka-Maka" is rumored to be the name attached to Google's bid to create a social networking tool to end all social networking tools. So eat your heart out, Facebook.

Techcrunch reports that Maka-Maka (which means "friend" in Hawaiian) is an attempt to "build a social layer across all of its applications," and will eventually combine all of Google's applications into one giant web-crawling, social-networking monster: Maka-Maka! Official details, as well as the first peek, are expected sometime this week.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
