Rumor from +Artem Russakovskii is that Preview 2 will drop today the good news is if it does there are already 40 fixed bugs that should land when they spin the builds and push them out. Some of them are the worst to like data drops and crashing of system apps.

So now that the domains are registered I just figured I would semi-announce that myself, +Satyajit Sahoo, +Elio Qoshi+Paolo Rotolo+Joshua Fogg+Viking KARWUR and +Georgi Karavasilev are launching a open source project to create a suite of open source mobile apps to help diabetics manage their glucose.

There currently are no open source projects like this and we think it will empower people to manage their health especially with a condition impacting millions worldwide.

Many of you are reading this post while living in a city. And you can probably think of a ton of ways you’d like your city to be better—more affordable housing, better public transport, less pollution, more parks and green spaces, safer biking paths, a shorter commute... the list goes on!

Many cities around the world have already made a lot of progress in some of these areas—for instance, developing dashboards to measure and visualize traffic patterns, and building tools that let residents instantly evaluate and provide feedback on city services. But a lot of urban challenges are interrelated—for example, availability of transportation affects where people choose to live, which affects housing prices, which affects quality of life. So it helps to start from first principles and get a big-picture view of the many factors that affect city life. Then, you can develop the technologies and partnerships you need to make a difference.

So I’m very excited about +Sidewalk Labs​, a new company we’ve announced today. (The press release is at www.sidewalkinc.com if you want to read more).  Sidewalk will focus on improving city life for everyone by developing and incubating urban technologies to address issues like cost of living, efficient transportation and energy usage. The company will be led by Dan Doctoroff, former CEO of Bloomberg and Deputy Mayor of Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. Every time I talk with Dan I feel an amazing sense of opportunity because of all the ways technology can help transform cities to be more livable, flexible and vibrant.  I want to thank +Adrian who helped to bring Dan on board.

While this is a relatively modest investment and very different from Google's core business, it’s an area where I hope we can really improve people’s lives, similar to Google[x] and Calico. Making long-term, 10X bets like this is hard for most companies to do, but Sergey and I have always believed that it’s important. And as more and more people around the world live, work and settle in cities, the opportunities for improving our urban environments are endless. Now it’s time to hit the streets and get to work!
We're on the brink of a historic period for cities around the world. By 2050, the population in cities will double, intensifying existing socioeconomic, public health and environmental problems. At the same time, innovations in technology can be used to design communities that are more efficient ...

+Benjamin Kerensa Oh yes, you are on the higher moral ground, I hope you believe that. You began with ad homonym, I've followed where you took it. Too late to keep your hands clean.
