At Google I/O "This year 23% of attendees are women, up from 20% in 2014."

Great article from +USA TODAY with +Natalie Villalobos 
SAN FRANCISCO — Even in an industry overrun by men, the lack of women attending major confabs for software developers is a bit shocking. Technology conferences are overrun by men.

Indeed. Kind of sad that such strong effort is necessary to encourage this shift. Happy that there is a crew at Google (myself included, of course) to doing so, though.

For those still wondering - it's the USB-MIDI-to-optical controller for one of my TinyTeslas (http://onetesla.com/products/kits/tinytesla-all/tinytesla-musical-tesla-coil-kit.html).

Use #io15request to ask us anything you’d like to know about I/O 2015

If you’re interested in details about what’s going on at I/O 2015 (google.com/io) but you won’t be at the show in-person, we’ve got you covered with the fourth annual #io15request program. On May 28-29, you can send your requests to our team about anything related to Google I/O 2015 and we'll do our best to get your questions answered live from Moscone. Even if it requires moonwalking (http://goo.gl/8UVlMH)!

How does it work?
-- To put in a request during I/O (May 28-29), all you need to do is create a public Google+ or Twitter post from your profile using the hashtag #io15request. We’ll only be able to reply to requests written in English, French and German.
-- Our team of Google Community Managers will track down answers to your requests, mentioning you in the post so you don’t miss it. 
-- If you’re curious to see what others are requesting, follow our Google+ Collection (https://goo.gl/A6NAxo) (where we’ll be collecting all responses posted on Google+) or search for #io15request on either Google+ or Twitter.

For any of my #webmidi  peeps looking for a GREAT travel MIDI controller for a killer price, there's currently a flash deal on Keith McMillen Instruments KBoards: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Keith-McMillen-K-Board-USB-Keyboard-110745577-i3964589.gc?source=4TP5DTB.

I'm not usually much of one for product endorsements, but love my Quneo and QuNexus, and this is such a great deal I couldn't resist.  If I didn't already have a QuNexus, I'd buy one of these.

This is really cool. There's not been a lot of support for midi even though it's a great tool.

Introduction

Co-author of NCSA Mosaic for Windows v 1.0.  IE guy for over a decade.  Open standards advocate. Ex-Microsoftie.  Googler.  Study in contradictions.

I am currently a Developer Advocate at Google Inc.

I began working on the Internet in 1991 when I joined NCSA, working on the PC version of NCSA Telnet.  I started working on web browsers in 1993 when I co-authored the original Windows version of NCSA Mosaic, the first mass-market WWW browser.  After leaving NCSA in 1994 and spending a year working on the AIRMosaic web browser for SPRY, Inc., I joined Microsoft's Internet Explorer team as a developer in 1995.

Over the course of 15 years, I represented Microsoft in many standards working groups, in particular helping develop standards for Cascading Style Sheets, HTML, the Document Object Model and XSL through the W3C working groups.  I also developed the first implementation of Cascading Style Sheets in Internet Explorer – the first, in fact, in any mass-market web browser.  Beginning in 2001, I spent a few years working on the WPF project, but rejoined the IE team in 2004 to lead the IE Platform and Security team, then moved to work on the Javascript engine team in 2009.

In September of 2010, I left Microsoft and joined Google’s Developer Relations team, and worked on Google TV through the end of 2011.  I now work on the Open Web Platform in the Chrome team, and in 2013 I relocated from Seattle to San Jose, CA.

In my free time, I take pictures, go hiking with my wife and two young daughters, work on our house and scuba dive.
