Pic from this morning.

I know that +Rosa Golijan +Hugo Barra and others are concerned, so here's the current state (also notice the variety of coffee being served in the sign above). My end goal is 0.88jt in length (using the +Jonathan Terleski scale) but it won't get there by IO.

Hi Chris, I'm concerned about your Google Music and hope your people will book a meeting with my people soon so we can sort it all out.

Beauty and The Beast. Two dogs I passed by on a walk yesterday with two very different personalities.

Ohaname and Yerga: sounds to me like chocolate and peanut butter - a great combo.

Well done Google Play Music for Chrome team! I'm loving the mini player :)
 
Music was made to be loved. We just made loving it easier. With Google Play Music for Chrome, you can now keep all the music you love in the cloud so that you always have it. To add new music, enable the “Google Play Music for Chrome” lab at play.google.com/music/listen#/labs. Then simply drag and drop songs into your Google Play Music library. If you have a lot of music in iTunes or if you want new music to be added automatically, you can configure this by clicking “Add Music” at the top right of play.google.com/music

But, wait, there’s more! This new lab has extra goodies. You can now open a handy mini-player by clicking the arrow in the bottom right corner of our web app so you can see what’s playing or skip songs from any tab. Plus, download songs, albums and playlists directly from the web. Let us know what you think! 

We built this lab using Chrome Apps and Native Client technology, developers can learn more at developer.chrome.com/apps/about_apps and developer.chrome.com/native-client. Uploads, downloads and the mini player are just the start, and we are excited to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the web.

I got an SMS from my Japanese hair stylist dude yesterday. For some reason his use of the word "concerned" struck me as amusing, so I replied:

you're concerned? My best interest?
When I went to your schools
I went to your churches
I went to your institutional learning facilities?
All I wanted was a haircut.

I haven't heard back. Can anyone recommend a good place in Tokyo? I may need a new guy.

Had a fun night out with some friends at Gigabar Tokyo where they will let just about anyone up on stage. As proof of that, here's +Steve Middlekauff banging out a tune with yours truly on guitar. I believe this means we are now offically bros.

This is the first time I've played this tune live and the first time I've played with Steve at all, so hopefully you can overlook a few stumbles here and there.

Thanks +Pico Okada for recording this!

+Jun Inada Thanks for the compliment -- coming from an actual rock star like yourself it means a lot! Rig was Les Paul thru Tube Screamer into a Marshall half-stack. The people at the bar set it up and it sounded perfect :)

I wasn't planning on sleeping tonight. I've only caught 10 so far. This is brilliant!

I'm not a big anime fan, but on a recent plane flight I watched some episodes of Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人) and it had a great story line. This scene where ミカサ loses her family and is saved by Eren was heart-breaking.

Introduction
I got an Apple II and an electric guitar in the 1980's. Everything else was a natural progression from there.

I've been on Hack-A-Day 3 times:

I like T-Shirts:

I write code now and then:

Still haven't gotten the 120th star in Super Mario 64. Maybe when I retire...
Bragging rights
I won an Editor's Choice blue ribbon at Maker Faire 2010 from Make Magazine. I stole a couch from Jean-Louis Gassée when I was 17, but he stole it back.
