Bay area friends - REALLY random question. Does anyone know the name of the artist who had an installation or merchandise at Kaleid Gallery in 2011-ish with the line: San Jose: It used to be orchards

Is she still around?

Truly inspirational. The +Big Android BBQ​​ and +IDEAA​​ have been committed to fighting human trafficking and the abuse of women and children for years. If anyone else wants to help women like this, I encourage them to donate to +Rapha House​​ (http://www.raphahouse.org/). 

H/T to a private poster 
Hearing about a young woman's struggle to wipe away her conviction on prostitution charges inspired New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen to introduce legislation to help other victims.

As Google I/O quickly approaches we are hard at work getting everything ready for a great I/O Extended.

A few days before I/O for the past few years a huge gathering of GDG Organizers from all over the world takes places in Mountain View. Every year there is an awesome shirt design that wins. This year GDG Chicago is proud to be able to put up a shirt design.

If we win I'll have some of these shirts to give away to the people of GDG Chicago. So +1 this if you like free shirts! +1 this if you like the awesome design +Virginia Poltrack created! or just simple +1 this post!

The more +1's we get on this post the better off we are so please reshare and ask others to +1 this post as well.

A great story from #BAMGDC  Code Kitchen

I had to share this story with you guys.
One of the first people to show up to the Code Kitchen was a young man from a local high school. (So keep that in mind - a high school student got up VERY early on a Saturday to come to this event).
He was very polite and well-mannered (he behaved better than me, I think. I should ask him for advice...). Anyway. Every time I would see him during the event, he was smiling, and looked like he was really enjoying himself, which was awesome to see.

As we were packing up to leave, we saw him again in the lobby. Turns out, he had won one of the challanges, and was holding a gift basket / prize, just BEAMING because he was so proud and excited. The shy person from the morning had been replaced by this confident, excited person - it was AWESOME. I was SO HAPPY for him, and it was just great to see him so excited about the event, technology, and the whole experience in general.

So it got me thinking. That event could end up having a huge impact on that young man's life. And that's pretty incredible! 
Also - I told him someday when he owns his own company, he can be one of the +IDEAA sponsors, so let us know, lol. He thought that was a great idea. He also invited everyone to a special event at his school, and Jono said, "Oh, is it open to the public?" and the young man said, "No - but I am officially inviting you!". It was lovely.
And I think THAT is what it's all about :)

I remember that kid. Smart kid. He sat at my table that morning, but went off to brainstorm with some of the other brains in the room. The kid in the hoodie, that's how I described him. Lol

Great spot to grab a bite or a drink in downtown Manhattan Beach. I had the kale salad and the Big Sur pizza. The kale salad might be the best I've ever had; this would convert anyone who doesn't like kale. The Big Sur pizza (all pizzas are 10 inches; individually sized) was just as amazing and the crust was the perfect texture and thickness. The sangria was pretty good, too; it's pear and tangerine which is an unusual combination for a sangria, but it tasted great and it wasn't too sweet. We had two small children in our group, and the staff were great with them. I will definitely be back the next time I'm here.

Adorable spot to grab a meal. Went for the character breakfast buffet and got to hang out with Chip & Dale for a few minutes! The food was good, especially for a buffet, and the service was good (not surprising, considering it's Disney) and the decor is amazing. It is a bit pricey, though.

If you're familiar with Legal Seafood, this place will seem very familiar. It's one of their test kitchens, so they still have the famed Legal clam chowder, but the rest of the menu is different and subject to change regularly as the chefs try different dishes. The last time I was here, a lot of the dishes seemed to be more in the Asian fusion family, but I've also seen menus that have a more Italian/Mediterranean spin as well. I don't recall ever having a bad meal or a bad drink (I'm especially fond of the pomegranate lemon drop martini). The wine selection is fantastic. It's right on the water near the convention center, so be prepared to wait.

Local microbrewery with typical pub food (with a few highlights). Food-wise, my favorites are the salmon burger, even though it's a little messy, and the fried haddock sandwich, with sweet potato fries. There are a few beer staples (the Hub Light, the blueberry, the Back Bay IPA, the Boston Red and the Nut Brown Ale, to name a few), but a lot of the beers are seasonal and they cycle in and out throughout the year. An annual favorite is the watermelon ale, available between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Check the board to see what the theme of the month is. There are definitely a few experiments I wish I could forget (the rosemary beer being one notable example) but the brewers here are always experimenting and have produced some really interesting beers that don't exist anywhere else. That alone makes it worth stopping in. Fair warning - steer clear on game days unless you plan on being here two hours before the Red Sox game starts and staying until the game is over. Packed is an understatement for how crowded it can get. Also, don't even consider driving. Park somewhere and take the green line. Trust me on this one. There is a lot next door, but it's part public parking and part corporate/monthly pass parking, so your odds of getting a space are dubious at best.

By far, the best part of this location is the roof deck. If it's open, there is no other acceptable place to sit. Fantastic view of Fenway park and great atmosphere on the roof (it's smaller, so it feels less like a cavern, which the downstairs can feel like unless it's crowded). The beer list is okay; it's not great, but it's acceptable. Even beer snobs can probably find something to order. Most of the food is pretty mediocre, even by Boston sports bar standards. The service can be pretty hit or miss, too; I've had some very long waits for checks, food, drinks, etc. over the several times I've been here. Tons of TVs, though, so if you're coming for a specific sporting event, there are worse places to watch.

It's one of their test kitchens, so they still have the famed Legal clam chowder, but the rest of the menu is different and subject to change regularly as the chefs try different dishes. I've had a few overcooked shrimp here from time to time, but those experiences are few and far between. I don't recall ever having a bad meal or a bad drink. The wine selection is fantastic. It is a more upscale and less frantic atmosphere, so service can be slower, because they're not necessarily trying to rush you out (although that doesn't always hold true; it nearly always does if you sit upstairs, though, which you should definitely do).
