If the guy wasn't already likable enough... now this!  What a phenomenon this song and this singer are...
This unfiltered emotional display only makes the most likable man in pop music more likable*. After watching a montage of fan-made videos to his No. 1 hit "Happy" during his interview on Oprah Prime, Pharrell wept (and wept). When the renaissance man finally pulled himself together, he explained, "It's overwhelming, because it's like I love what I do, and I just appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I could make it ...

This was so awesome - so glad they extended it. My mom learned how to use maps on her iPad because of it. She found 115. But, I didn't log her in, and when she rebooted, they were gone! Is there any way to get the pokemon turned back on for her login?

My wife +Irene Au gave the opening keynote at the recent IA Summit Conference in San Diego.  (The IA Summit is the Information Architecture Summit, not (as we joked) the Irene Au Summit, though in my humble opinion she stole the show.  More info here:  http://2014.iasummit.org/)

The notes are posted below, and it's a fascinating read (although it can't capture the passion of her delivery and the great Q&A session that followed.)

+Irene Au your story has inspired me so much! I shared it internally at the biotech where I worked and it resonated with so many people. So thank you for sharing your story with us! And wish you the very best on your journey ahead as a yogi!

This was the kickoff talk at +TED and was incredibly inspirational.  Astronaut, fear, epic heroism, etc.

Best sermon from the church of +TED Talks I've seen in a while. +Chris Hadfield ought to be hosting the new COSMOS, what an inspiring gusher of brilliant and poetic insight.

VP Product, Google+
Introduction

I oversee Product Management for the Google+ Project.  Previously at Google I've led the product teams for GMail, Google Voice, Google Talk, Orkut, Google Docs, 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.
