(Q) What is the next big update everyone will be talking about in 2013?
(A) It is weird because we never know what people will complain about... But there is a new Penguin update, big one, coming...
(Q) Duane, do you plan on any penguin/panda updates?
(A) We take a different approach to this. It is less noticeable when we release them because we test them. A diss at Google?

Maybe the dissavow data will play into this as the viral footprint widens. FUD and panic amongst some webmasters may also play it's part.
I wonder, are Google's developments that obvious to Bing for them to follow suit if they want. And if so, why isn't the webmaster community better able to interpret and anticipate Google's actions for healthier management.
