I gather from folks at Google that they have been working on DNSsec for a
while. It's more complicated for Google's services than for most people.
 This was from interactions before this event.

Dunno when they will start turning it on.  It will be phased in across
different services at different times.  I suspect this event has upped the
urgency, of course.  And whether others are learning from this event is as
always unclear.
