A foggy evening, and fireworks over the bay. An interesting creation from Google+.

Nobody likes a snoop. Let's make email safer.
 
If you’re sending confidential information by mail, you wouldn’t put it in a postcard. And if you want your email to be protected from snooping, both you and the people you’re emailing with need to use services that support encryption in transit. Emails sent between Gmail users are encrypted as they move between our data centers—but about 40 percent of emails sent between Gmail and other providers aren’t encrypted. Learn more in a new section of our Transparency Report: g.co/saferemail .

It’s time for #RealSurveillanceReform. Join me in asking the Senate to fix the loophole in the USA FREEDOM Act and end bulk data collection once and for all. https://takeaction.withgoogle.com/gg/USAFreedomAct

Typical chat over here at Google HQ. Come watch the #VintCerfHangout today at 2 p.m. EDT for a discussion about the Internet's past, present and future with one of its inventors. g.co/VintHangout

Love +Strava its use of data and the apparently great things it helps cities do to improve cycling for all.
 
How Strava's data-rich cycling app is helping cities build smarter bike lines :

"It’s time for the FCC to ask, to listen, and to think. The future of the Internet depends on it."
The future of the Internet hangs in the balance.

You cannot tell me that +Google+ isn't awesome, when they automagically add snow to pictures of snow.

Yeah... I still don't know about this Google+ business. Just logged in for the first time in what seems like years. Snow is cool though!

U.S. government agencies claim they don't need a warrant to ask for private content—such as Gmail messages, documents, photos and YouTube videos. (Here at Google, we push back.) We urge reform to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to require a warrant for online info, just like for offline. 

If you're in the U.S., sign this petition to the White House today—we need 100,000 signatures to guarantee a response: http://goo.gl/N2C7Uu

Stopped by for a quick bite and got a creative sandwich and a friendly owner with a great vibe to the spot. Loved it. Give it a try!
