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.

Because SCIENCE!
 
“It is impossible to overestimate the importance of Sergey’s and Larry’s paper in 1998. I cannot think of any scientific paper that has had such an impact on society.” 
-  Professor Dame Wendy Hall, International World Wide Web Conference Committee Chair

Congratulations to Google founders +Larry Page and +Sergey Brin, who have received the inaugural Seoul Test-of-Time Award at the 24th International World Wide Web Conference in Florence, Italy!

In 1998, Larry and Sergey introduced Google to the world with their research paper The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine (http://goo.gl/PCPZK4), presented at the 7th World Wide Conference in Brisbane, Australia.

The award was presented on May 22, and was accepted on behalf of our founders by Google Distinguished Scientist +Andrei Broder. See the #www2015  conference announcement at http://goo.gl/A71sFt.

This is a great article, except for one little tidbit... There are so many more incredible women working in security and privacy here that weren't featured! I could add at least a dozen names of the top of my head!
 
"Meet The Badass Women Of Google's Security Team"

I can confirm badass status.
Getting hacked isn't really something you think about — until your email address is being used to spam hundreds of your contacts and your private photos are all over Google. And, that's where these four women come into play. As members of the Google security team, they protect us by finding

Finally... After 10 YEARS at Google, it's finally happened.

I just booked a FULL WEEK in Las Vegas at the +MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino and it's for work!

Vegas! For a WEEK! For Work!

I mean, I don't want to sound like I'm complaining about all those other places like Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Australia, Taiwan, China, India, Brazil, Argentina or Mexico (to name a few) but this is Vegas! In August, when its roughly eleventy hundred degrees outside. For a week.

Am I going to die?

Get my room ready, +MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. I'll have my MLife gold card in hand.

ps: +Violet Blue, we need to chat about DefCon when the agenda is up...

MGM has the BEST endless river pool +Andy Bohm!  I've been there in August and what you do is float around the pool all day while staying "hydrated", hide from the sun in the grotto behind the water fall ;)  Life could be worse!  Dining choice?  Craft Steak!!!  Yes!

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!
