Google sets date for tilting at healthcare windmillGoogle's Marissa Mayer told the Web 2.0 Summit audience in San Francisco that the company's Google Health initiative will launch in early 2008. She said she's been in daily 90-minute meetings with developers on the project since she took over for the now-departed (and rumored to be Facebook-bound) Adam Bosworth in August. Mayer said parts of the Health system will be free, but expect subscription-based services and applications, too. We remain skeptical. Google hasn't bothered to hire a full-time replacement for Bosworth, whose assignment to healthcare was likely a hint to head for the door in the first place. Mayer's smart to only spend 90 minutes a day on the project, since a full-time health gig is deadly for anyone in tech. (Photo by AP)
