I recognize +Jamie Foxx as well as +Kitt Vanderwater and +Jessica Safir. We could probably use more of these events.
 
Yesterday, Googlers, members of the local community, Hands On Bay Area and the cast of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" gathered together at Shoreline Park in Mountain View, Calif. to work on a project to restore habitat for the endangered burrowing owl.

+Michael Stillwell I was surprised by all of the things nearby, even the things farther away. It would hurt to have that rocket fall on you. It's amazing how well they can control its movement with such a long, controlled explosion.

For weeks I couldn't figure out how to enable Android developer settings on my Nexus 7. Finally, I found someone on the Internet with the same problem.

"Apparently only the tablet owner (first user created) has access to developer settings. I was using another user."

Good to know!

Action!
When we launched schema.org almost 3 years ago, our main focus was on providing vocabularies for describing entities --- people, places, movies, restaurants, ...  But the Web is not just about static descriptions of entities...

Last December, we introduced +Post ads to a limited number of AdWords advertisers as a way to amplify their content to new audiences. Starting today, we’re making +Post ads available to all advertisers with at least 1000 Google+ followers: goo.gl/6gNlsx.

See how brands such as +Audi USA  and +Topman  are using +Post ads to drive more participation with their brand’s content across the web.

Last night I wrote a program in #golang  to create autostereograms. The attached image is best viewed full screen on a computer. If you can't see the 3D image, try looking through the image at your reflection in the monitor.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autostereogram

This is my first program in Go. I was delighted by how easy it was to define my own image type. I implemented the image.Image interface on my own simple data structure, and everything "just worked". I haven't optimized anything, but processing this image felt instantaneous.

You can try it yourself.
1) http://golang.org/doc/install
2) go get github.com/cartland/go/imagic
3) go install github.com/cartland/go/imagic/example

Make sure to click the link Panel Discussion: Dawkins, Tyson, Druyan, Stenger, Grothe which starts at the correct time, unless you want to watch the whole video.
 
At 1:01:31, old white dude asks a panel of scientists "What's up with chicks in science?" and then smarmy white moderator dude asks the panel "Who wants to discuss genetic differences between men and women?" and then Neil deGrasse Tyson of Cosmos  drops a truth-bomb on race and gender inequalities in the scientific community. #BOOM

I think people are still finding codes for #googleio. Worth taking a look?
 
After browsing a lot of the Google documentation pages for the #io14  easter egg hunt I want to congratulate the +Google Chrome Developers (or +Google Developers?) to their fantastic #GoogleCast docs.

It's great to see each case described with screenshots and steps in between, always for #Android, #iOS  and #Web.

Thank you for putting this much work into it!

Very nicely done.
 
After struggling with trying to figure out how various pieces fit together, I've done some research and put together the complete Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart. This has two parallel lifecycles (activities and fragments) which are organized vertically by time. Lifecycle stages will occur in the vertical order in which they're displayed, across activities and fragments. In this way, you can see how your fragments interact with your activities.

In addition to the attached image, I've also got an SVG: http://staticfree.info/~steve/complete_android_fragment_lifecycle.svg which is suitable for printing.

If this is missing lifecycle steps or is inaccurate in any way, let me know so I can update it!

Let's do something awesome.
Introduction
I work with Developer Relations at Google. Our team brings the bleeding edge of technology to applications around the world.

Before Google you would have found me building solar cars in Berkeley and racing one across Australia.

And all of this started by playing with computers in Templeton. Small things lead to big changes.

The view of Hong Kong and the boats is amazing. The cocktails were delicious, even if they were pricey, but it was definitely worth the experience at the "highest bar in the world."

The Beach Basil Ginger is a tasty cocktail with vodka, lime, Campari, basil, and ginger. The crowd seemed to be good natured tourists between the age of 30 and 60. The bar TV was playing NBC Kids, which was odd, but the restaurant view of the beach from the second floor is very nice, even if it's a little foggy. The first floor contains a visitor center which is open during the day.

The long line moved fairly quickly and once you're inside the food is good.

I loved my fish burger with goat cheese. The sandwich was served with caramelized onions, tomato, and green salad. Lunch was simple and delicious.
