Version is current iOS public.
 
I chose to listen to teased planet money program and the audio isn't loaded well so it keeps getting choppy and pausing for a second. Maybe buffer more audio in background before starting?

Somewhat related - when listening to NPR podcasts, I sometimes experience hearing the audio at an accelerated rate - not sure why that's happening.

I recently joined the Board of Directors at The Lab, a non-profit arts organization in San Francisco, and am very excited about the coming year, beginning with this fundraiser full of cool stuff (and the upcoming Telethon). If you’re interested in learning more let me know. And if you’re able to donate, that'd be amazing!

You can read about our full mission statement at http://thelab.org/about.html. I'm particularly excited about the aspects of programming that allows the public to access the creative process in a really unique way. It's something seen in a few rare glimpses in the past and something I can't wait to see more of.

I'll share more info about upcoming events but please also sign up for our newsletter.
Bring exciting art, music, and performance projects to life by rebuilding San Francisco's most important space for experimental art!

W00t! I don't know what that means, but my younger friends tell me that I'm using it correctly in this context.

Thrilled for them and for you...and excited to back something that sounds hip and trendy!

Nice work on the announcement today +Vic Gundotra and +Matt Waddell and also to the tons of folks building and shipping all of this. 

Thrilled and lucky to get to work with these brilliant people on such great stuff. The things coming out of
+Google+ Photos must be tried to be fully believed. 
 
Google+ is introducing more Auto Awesome features: Action, which creates a strobe-effect photo; Eraser, which erases stuff that's moving in your photo to create a cleaner image; and Movie, which produces highlight reels from your photos and videos—complete with effects, transitions and a soundtrack—automatically.

As I shared a few weeks ago, I've been working hard to muster support for The Lab, an SF arts non-profit on whose board I sit. Thank you to everyone who has pitched in – that's quite a number of you!

You can read all about the effort in some great press coverage from the NY Times (http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/11/13/the-lab-san-francisco-art-space/). We are still looking for more support so please reshare and please consider donating, even if it's a small amount. 

The Kickstarter is at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/buildthelab/build-the-lab
The Lab, a haven for the city’s experimental scene for 30 years, is hosting a telethon-style performance piece this weekend to raise funds. Lydia Lunch, Devendra Banhart and Grouper are pitching in.

It seems like this isn't a great recommendation.

Great things in bulk: teas, spices, grains, nuts, olives. And nice selection of other groceries. No meat, though, in case that's what you want.
