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.

Nothing more to say, really. :-)
 
The pride flag has flown for 37 years. Today, we can all understand what it really means. #LoveWins https://goo.gl/QQZFfn

True story: the original flag had 8 colors, adding pink for sex and turquoise for magic, but because of the flag industry's limited color palette they were eliminated.

Thus offering further proof that industry and standardization removes the sex and magic from life!

You ever just fire up +Netflix, see a movie on the screen that you've never heard of and have no idea what it's about, click play and find out the movie was great?

Yeah, that just happened.

Dear +Larry Page,

The Confederate Flag is a painful reminder to many black people that there are those in the South who still very much wish the Confederate Army would have won the Civil War. They defend the actions of the Confederacy. They believe the Confederacy was in the right. If pressed, they'll say that no no, they don't wish slavery would have continued, that they believe in States Rights and Southern History, but they never finish those sentences. They never say that the states of the Confederacy were fighting for their right to continue with slavery in the face of the US Government outlawing the practice. They never say that the Southern history they so romanticize was built on the backs of black slaves. That flag flies every day in South Carolina as a symbol of those values, reminding black people in South Carolina of where their feelings stand in the hearts of their neighbors and leaders. That the pain of slavery and being reminded of it daily takes a back seat to "Southern Pride."

In October 2014, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley stated the following: "I can honestly say I have not had one conversation with a single CEO about the Confederate flag." (via http://www.vox.com/2015/6/18/8803661/charleston-sc-shooting-confederate-flag-statehouse)

Google has a data center in Moncks Corner, South Carolina. Please be the first to CEO to step up and say something. Tell Gov. Haley that the continued presence of the Confederate flag stands in the way of Google's continued presence in South Carolina. This is where you can not just talk about, but BE about diversity. Demonstrate that inclusion, that the feelings and history of black people in this country, in your company, are important to you. Please take this opportunity to lead, not only by word but also by deed.

Thanks,
Erica

I ran into the office this morning and checked in the fridge, but there was NO Mountain Dew. In its place for my caffeine fix, I grabbed some Monster Energy drink and added some Torino Strawberry syrup to help disguise the taste and sweeten it up.

I've made a horrible, horrible mistake.

Once my 13yo daughter tasted rockstar and said it tasted like cough syrup too... I couldn't anymore.

Anyone want a case of carbonated syrup?

Interesting. Here's a way to see how well your Mobile apps stack up with regards to Privacy.
Grades are assigned using a privacy model that we built. This privacy model measures the gap between people's expectations of an app's behavior and the app's actual behavior. For example, according to studies we have conducted, most people don't expect games like Cut the Rope to use location ...
