3 years ago we embarked on a project to put computing inside a contact lens -- an immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health.  While I am delighted at the progress that project has made, I could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into -- a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.  The efforts it has spawned include  a nanodiagnostics platform, a cardiac and activity monitor, and the Baseline Study.

It’s a huge undertaking, and I am delighted to announce that the life sciences team is now ready to graduate from our X lab and become a standalone Alphabet company, with Andy Conrad as CEO.  While the reporting structure will be different, their goal remains the same. They’ll continue to work with other life sciences companies to move new technologies from early stage R&D to clinical testing—and, hopefully—transform the way we detect, prevent, and manage disease.  
   
The team is relatively new but very diverse including software engineers, oncologists, and optics experts.  This is the type of company we hope will thrive as part of Alphabet and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

Feeling creative?
 
Seeking Glass Explorers: goo.gl/PbKWr

Last year we showed Glass to the world for the first time - we jumped out of airships, crashed New York Fashion Week and even took a ride on the subway. It’s been an exhilarating journey so far and there’s a lot more to come, but we can’t go it alone. We’re developing new technology that is designed to be unobtrusive and liberating, and so far we’ve only scratched the surface of the true potential of Glass.

Now we want you to get involved and that’s why today we’re expanding our Glass Explorer Program. We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. Glass is still in the early stages, so we expect there will be some twists and turns along the way. While we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting. 

We’d love to make everyone a Glass Explorer, but we’re starting a bit smaller. So, if you want to be one of the first Explorers, go to www.google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one to find out how.

I had a blast today testing out a new kiteboat with my friend +Don Montague.  It was amazing to go ~2.5x wind speed.  But what topped it off was catching an actual green flash at the end of the day with the sun setting right behind the golden gate bridge.  I thought I had seen them before kinda sorta but this was really bright saturated no-question-about-it green.

Run for the users of Google a simple option "to block" at last! On mail.ru, if you block somebody one time, you will never see letters from the blocked addresses, even in the trash. But on Google abusive spam from blocked addresses come back every day. And so every day for months! Several times per day! All the same monsters are poisoning my life. For example now a crazy jerk(s) from address astoria@vr.com – I have been getting from it offensive spam several times every day. Although I blocked this address immediately and have been doing it every fucking (because of them) day! Google could solve this problem quickly and easily to make life easier for users and Google-support themselves (!) + to increase safety of Google and the Internet in general, but I write about this to the Google-support for a year already (more than 40 times !!!) and for some reason no one cares, that is very strange and suspicious. Are you in a cahoots with the fraudsters? Some inadequate technical support representatives have fun like this? I very much hope not, but even incredibly lazy support in any other company would helped a long time ago. I WILL WRITE ABOUT THE PROBLEM TO YOU EVERY DAY (LIKE THE JERKS THAT POISON MY LIFE) UNTIL THE PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVE AT LAST. I HATE WASTING MY TIME BUT WHAT CAN I DO?

Don't miss today's solar eclipse.  I took the one below a couple years back on Hao atoll.  It's very spectacular in person if you around Cairns right now but if not you can catch a live stream online.  It's about 5 minutes to totality at many sites.

I'm very excited to welcome Lift to Google[x].
 
We have news -- we’re excited to be joining Google[x], Google’s moonshot factory. We will continue to sell our Liftware system, and Google will enable us to reach even more people living with Parkinson’s or essential tremor who could benefit from using tremor-canceling devices every day.

Freefall!

You know the sensation of weightlessness you get from the drop of a roller coaster.  Well, you don't get much of that jumping out of an airplane because the high airspeed causes you to feel pressure the moment you step out.  A helicopter, however, can go very slow so when you jump it's like falling through space.

No place in the world has made me consider my place in the universe like Jellyfish Lake. Millions of creatures all drifting seemingly aimlessly, searching for light, for the energy to spawn so generations of their offspring may do the same years later. I take a small breath, sink toward the bottom, watching them in wonder and think are we really so different?

Check out today's Google Doodle celebrating Lady Ada Lovelace, the world's first computer programmer.  I found the linked blog post fascinating. 
 
Lady Ada Lovelace, born nearly two centuries ago on December 10, 1815, is considered by some to be the world’s first computer programmer. In 1843, she published the first algorithm intended for use on Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine. Nearly a century before the first computers were built, Ada envisaged a day when a single machine would be capable of a myriad of tasks, limited only by the creativity of its programmer.

Today we're celebrating Ada's prophetic vision for computing with a doodle on homepages worldwide. We hope today's doodle inspires people to find out more about Ada, and about the contributions made by women in general to science and technology. Read more: http://goo.gl/zL9Ar

I must confess, I am dreading today's elections.
Not because of who might win or lose.
Not because as a Californian, my vote for President will count 1/3 as much as an Alaskan (actually it won't matter at all -- I'm not in a swing state).
Not because my vote for Senate will count 1/50 as much as an Alaskan.

But because no matter what the outcome, our government will still be a giant bonfire of partisanship.  It is ironic since whenever I have met with our elected officials they are invariably thoughtful, well-meaning people.  And yet collectively 90% of their effort seems to be focused on how to stick it to the other party.

So my plea to the victors -- whoever they might be: please withdraw from your respective parties and govern as independents in name and in spirit.  It is probably the biggest contribution you can make to the country.

[If you agree, pass it on to your newly elected officials.]

When we spend our time worrying we CAN'T SEE the solutions laying all around us!
Please answer the following questions to the best of your ability. There are no right or wrong answers.


Very Important Questions:


1. What attribute or element in today's society would you correct and why?

2. What attribute would make someone a positive member of society?

3 What is the ultimate goal of you making society a better place?

4. What would one need to do to obtain that goal?



Catch 22:
* Is society based on misleading information?

`-Democratic society while claiming otherwise; is destroying the FOLLOWING:
LIST

1. Natural resources of the planet..
2. Moral fabric of society (America)
3. Fostering racial, money, political hate and mistrust in every race and culture
4. In society today, I feel people do not trust their own brain and depend on technology to answer every question.. Serious lack in self belief.. The masses entrust technology to answer all life problem..





It's totally possible to take a few days off from living and let them slip by. ... Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of. ... The beauty of this quote is that a “daring adventure” can mean all things to all people, so you don't ... “Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.




Jerry




to me

1. What attribute or element in today's society would you correct and why?
We are one family of people and need to love God and each other in heart and in action.

2. What attribute would make someone a positive member of society?
To share and give and love one another - it starts with me. Do not take on and harbor lies and bitterness and anger - even though there is plenty to be upset about.

3 What is the ultimate goal of you making society a better place?
Believe and obey Jesus (God) - if we were loving and kind and giving and wise like Him we would not be like the religious fools that harassed Him nor like the Roman bullies!

4. What would one need to do to obtain that goal?
Salvation and God's Holy Spirit leading and guiding our actions!

to me

1. I would correct the fact that people seem to forget what genuine human nature is all about. We as a whole are doing everything imaginable but being actual humans. The only thing differentiating us from any other species is our ability to act upon emotion. So be kind, be generous, and make a difference.
2. Everyone should be considered a positive member of society. It's all a matter of perception. We all have the option of seeing something great in everyone.
3. My ultimate goal for making society a better place is being kind and understanding when everyone else isn't. It's so rare these days that its almost not understood correctly.
4. One only needs himself. Refer to the first question.
Dan

1. What attribute or element in today's society would you correct and why?
The need of people to be dependent on the government or another person or third party to meet their needs or to assist them in some capacity - the need to look outside themselves to achieve an objective, goal or need.

2. What attribute would make someone a positive member of society?
Self reliance and belief in one's self because they make a person personally powerful and assured without any need to look outside themselves .

3 What is the ultimate goal of you making society a better place?
Make the man right and you will make the whole world right and better.

4. What would one need to do to obtain that goal?
The absolute awareness, understanding, connection and resonating feeling that life is perfect and provides everything and that it is only you who can achieve your goals or meet your needs. It is you and no other person or thing that can do it for you.

Thanks for your help with the questions.. Please feel free to share these questions with anybody with a brain.. Thank you so much!



Very Important Questions:





1. What attribute or element in today's society would you correct and why? Eliminate poverty – I would like everyone to have, at the least, a roof over their heads and food in their bellies.



2. What attribute would make someone a positive member of society? Kindness.



3 What is the ultimate goal of you making society a better place? To live in a more peaceful world.



4. What would one need to do to obtain that goal? See #s 1-3. I think the desire for power, which I find to be the cause of much strife, would moderate if everyone had enough.
