Some great comments from +Sundar Pichai about future product direction for Google+, Photos, Hangouts.  We've been working hard on these changes and I'm really excited about what these will mean for our users.  As +Radiohead says, "Everything in its right place..."

+Bradley Horowitz I'm late to your post but I have a question. Personally I like the integration of the stream and photos. However as an avid user of g+ I'm pretty concerned that Google will kill off the stream once the split happens. Google has earned a reputation of killing off products it loses interest in no matter how passionate the user community might be.

+Peter Vogel​ recently shared news that you are now in charge of of g+. Would it be possible to hear more about what plans you may have for the stream? +Vic Gundotra​'s optimism about g+ has sorely been missing and I think the community could use a more vocal g+ advocate (no offense to +Dave Besbris​)

For a special issue of their magazine commemorating Moore's Law, the Computer History Museum asked me to write an essay.  I chose to address how the phenomenon Moore described made Google possible--and continues to make the impossible not only possible but inevitable. Those like Larry Page who feel this in their bones have a huge advantage, especially when they are able to brush off criticisms that their ideas are "crazy."

The Intel co-founder drew the blueprint for the digital revolution. Larry Page read it well.

+Brian Kemler helped launch Google (Search and Gmail) in a new language today...  Any guesses as to which language is on my t-shirt?

(And thanks to +Leo Deegan for the photo!)

Puppies teach patience (slo-mo)

I'd say Rashi was pretty patient with her new puppy friend...  (Who clearly thinks she is a large, black sheep... and wants to herd her!)

Amazing 3D printing...

3D printing has come a very long way in a very short time.  While in NYC, I happened upon this display at the Uniqlo flagship.  Customers, dressed in Uniqlo clothes, as miniature 4" permanent mannequins.

More about the project here: http://www.theselflessselfieproject.com/

Would you volunteer your likeness to be forever memorialized in a retail display cabinet?!

VP, Google Photos and Streams
Introduction

Head of Google's Photos and Streams products...

Previously at Google I've led the product teams for GMail, Google Voice, Google Talk, Orkut, Google Docs, Google+, etc.

Before joining Google, I founded and led Yahoo's advanced development division, which developed new products such as Yahoo! Pipes, and I drove the acquisition of products such as Flickr and MyBlogLog. Previously, I was Co-Founder and CTO of Virage, where I oversaw the technical direction of the company from its founding through its IPO and eventual acquisition by Autonomy.

I've got a bachelor's degree in computer science from the University of Michigan, and a master's degree from the MIT Media Lab and was pursuing my Ph.D. there when I co-founded Virage.

I'm a bit of a dosa snob (having lived in India for a spell) and was very excited to try Dosa... We ordered a few appetizers and the classic standard by which all dosas must be judged - the Masala Dosa. Delicious. The dosa itself was crisp, light and not burned... and the filling was deliciously spiced and not oily. The appetizer was beautifully presented. All in all a very efficient and great night.

We treated ourselves to an evening of fine dining at Feitoria, in the beautiful Altis Belem Hotel and Spa. The Hotel and restaurant are stunningly beautiful. Right on the shores of the Tagus river, the views at sunset are spectacular... as the light is glistening and warmly glowing on the hillsides across the river. The decor of the hotel is understated, austere even, and classic. Minimilist granite. The food was a bit of "molecular gastronomy", but without overdoing it to the degree it becomes circus. We were served an "amuse bouche" of a savory oreo - black crackers, with crab cake filling. Delicious. Then we were brought gazpacho soup in a martini glass - including a faux olive (that was produced via molecular gastronomic magic.) For our entrees - I ordered the crusted sole, and my better half wisely ordered the 5 course tasting menu and wine pairings. She was presented with dish after exquisite dish. Everything was exceptionally and freshly presented. The staff as attentive and light-hearted. The wines were varied and delicious. We really enjoyed dessert. I ordered the "Seven textures of Apples" and she had the "Banana Split." Like many of our dishes, each one came with a narration and explanation as to the unique preparation. This was a perfect meal to what turned out to be a perfect night. We'll be back here whenever opportunity allows.

Fantastic sushi, convenient to the theater district. As good as it gets. Offered us a children's omakaze selection.

I'm here for the Wall Street Journal "D10" Conference, and I couldn't be more impressed with this facility. Sometimes it's easy for me to forget that when you factor out the cars, the people, the scene, etc. Los Angeles is gorgeous! A short 30m drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, and here you are... The staff, the rooms, the food... all first rate. I'd consider coming back here for a family trip.

We had a really lovely early lunch at Asiate, upon checking into the Mandarin Oriental at Columbus Circle. The food was really exceptional, and the view (on the 35th floor overlooking the park) was breath-taking. Service was comfortably casual and friendly. It was a great way to start our NYC adventure.

Izzy's is a delight. Perfectly consistent, and the staff is totally pleasant and thoughtful. I'm often there on a Saturday and sometimes Sunday morning.
