Introduction
I am a Googler.

There. I said it. I hesitate to bring this up but on multiple occasions I have needed to set some ground rules, so to speak. So consider this my disclaimer.

am a Googler.
do not work on Google+, though I work closely with that team at times.
On Google+, I am a User. I speak on my own behalf, and my views may not be representative of Google's.
I circle people who are interesting, and who interact.
I have no interest in expanding my influence or being a celebrity, as I'm quite happy doing what I do.

So, if you interact with me in your stream or in hangouts, I will NOT:
• Make publicly known any insights I may or may not have to future product plans.
• Participate in your secret private beta of cool Google+ addition. Public Betas, sure, but I don't want to know about your secret private groundbreaking app that may get trampled by some future feature/update.
• Participate in focus groups/discussions of how to expand your social network or influence.
• Talk about Search Engine Optimization.
• Look at your Google+ Marketing Plan.


I will:
• Happily tell you how great it is to work here. I will tell you stories of days past at Google. Goofy fun things employees do. Musicians, politicians and all the great things we see and experience.
• Occasionally help escalate your serious Google+ issue, if it's really urgent and we have an established relationship.
• Hang out well after I should be in bed.
• Post things that interest me, some of which may even relate to my job.
• Play my guitars in hangouts.
• Post pictures of my cat, because she's awesome.

Several of those "will not" examples open me up to the potential of both termination and possible litigation by my employer, and well, I LOVE my job and my Company.

There are lots of Googlers on here, and they are happy to interact and be friendly. Please don't step over the lines and make things awkward for us. We like to share, but we love our jobs. 

Thanks, and be social, my friends.

British-style bacon, or as it is correctly termed, bacon.

It's been a very hard day so far. I'll miss you, +Dan Fredinburg​. You have been a good friend and an inspiration. You have always followed your dreams and never let anyone tell you something couldn't be done.
 
I just had the immensely sad task of sending the following to all Google employees. My thoughts are with everyone in Nepal, and with Dan's family and friends.

"Early this morning, Nepal experienced the worst earthquake in its history, registering 7.8 on the Richter Scale. Current reports are that over 1,000 people were killed. It's a terrible tragedy.

Sadly, we lost one of our own in this tragedy. +Dan Fredinburg a long-time member of the Privacy organization in Mountain View, was in Nepal with three other Googlers, hiking Mount Everest. He has passed away. The other three Googlers with him are safe and we are working to get them home quickly.

The Crisis Response team has launched Person Finder[1] for Nepal, and is working to get updated satellite imagery to aid in the recovery effort. Google.org is committing $1M to the response, and we’ll have gift-matching available soon.  

Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal, and with Dan’s family and friends during this terrible time."

Ugh. Sorry you had to find out this way, +Suzanne Abbott​. It's been all over the news and social media today. My mom in VA saw it on the CBS news.

You know those Engineering shirts I've showed you that were the hardest bit of swag to earn at Google? Yeah, topped those by a long shot in difficulty level.

Son of a... Trying to renew my passport, and I finally got around to getting a new picture of me printed on paper, filled out an application online before printing it out on more paper, only to realize I still have to write a bunch of numbers on some special paper I got from my bank which I have to find at home somewhere, at which point, I can stuff the picture paper, the number paper, my old passport and the application paper in another folded up piece of paper that I'll write an address on before I stick a small sticky piece of paper in the corner, drop it in a box and wait a month for something to happen.

I don't think those words on the application mean what you think they mean.

I used CIBT Visas, with express/overnight and even with getting a new photo, I had my renewal in days. If it's not too late, it's highly recommended! PS: Walgreens in the Castro does passport photos, and they are very proud of the fact that they only let you leave with a very attractive pic!

How did the comic screw up the best part of that scene? Harrison Ford was smiling. Like a big giant grin!
