A colleague drew my attention to this:

SAN FRANCISCO — In a world where many people read everything on mobile
phones, a few seconds of load time can mean the gain or loss of millions
of readers and advertising dollars.

Now Google wants to help publishers — and itself — by speeding things up.

Google is working with the social media service Twitter and major news
publishers like The Guardian and The New York Times to create a new kind
of web link and article storage system that would load online news
articles and digital magazine pieces in a few milliseconds, according to
several people involved in the project. That is a fraction of the five
to 10 seconds it can take to load a typical website.

Does anybody know more about this? Is it something that we should keep an eye on, that we should know more about?
