This is really cool!
 
When we launched Project Loon in 2013 we hoped to answer a single question - could balloons be used to connect people to the Internet? Proving that this was possible in our New Zealand launch then led the team to start asking a much larger question - how can we make this work for everyone, no matter where they are in the world? How do you manufacture enough balloons to be able to provide coverage anywhere in the world and then launch them and control them so that there is always a balloon overhead to provide connection to the user on the ground?

In this latest video Project Lead Mike Cassidy offers a glimpse behind the scenes into how the Project Loon team have been tackling the challenges involved in moving from small scale, one-off launches and tests, to the scale and automation required to make balloon-powered Internet for all a reality.

Nice example of optimizing the critical rendering path: http://bit.ly/1mMQD46 - great to see Velocity site (finally) dogfooding perf best practices. Still room for improvement, but a great start nonetheless!

Great explanation of why document "charset" is important for performance: http://bit.ly/1fQ4Aoy - tl;dr: set the HTTP header!

This was just a picture of my parents backyard. Google automatically enhanced this with snowflakes.... Isn't that crazy?
