Jason & Ron, this might be an interesting topic for +All About Android or Arena.
 
Google Fit needs:
1) The ability to conveniently import data.  I have years of weight data that I would like to import, but I can find no way to do it without writing my own software.
2) The ability to conveniently export data. Google Takeout has no listing for Fit.  Of all the types of data in my Google account, health data is the most likely to be useful to me elsewhere.  Therefore, I will continue to use a spreadsheet as my system of record, and Fit only as a possible throwaway.

I don't understand why you cannot search the Google Play store for apps, based on whether they support Google Fit or Chromecast.  Google is trying to promote adoption of these, right?

Do you want to keep your best employees? The answer is obvious: of course you do! Then why do you still have stupid HR policies in place -- policies that can only drive your best employees straight into your competitors' arms?

​I identified the weed that grows in my front yard.  Apparently it is fairly difficult to eliminate.  Fortunately, however, it appears to be edible and possibly healthful:
significant increase in the speed of mathematical processing !!

excellent discussion by the panel this week

+Ethan Banks & co. hit the mark perfectly.

"[Documentation] is usually old because it's been stuffed in some folder on some long-lost share on a NAS somewhere.  One way we've kind of overcome having stale documentation is we have all of our documentation on our group wiki that everybody can modify as needed.  And we also give access to that wiki to other teams within IT, just so they know what's going on, how things are configured.  If a server guy has an issue, "My server is connected in this datacenter, in this rack, and that rack connects to this leaf, which connects to that spine."  It kind of helps everybody out, and if documentation needs to be changed, it's there.  Download it.  Modify it in Visio, or modify whatever tables on the wiki, and save it, and it's updated."

I have the opposite problem.  I already have a spreadsheet full of historical data, and I want to import it into Fit, in hopes of contributing to the "big data."  I think of it like Waze.  I contribute my data to the community, and in turn receive some useful benefit.  I accept that those benefits have not yet become clear, but I want to promote this and see where it goes.  What if every heart monitor in every hospital room in the US contributed data to Fit (or preferably, some more open, neutral system)? 

After all, who wouldn't want helpful information like, "You're in the top 15% heaviest people in your age group, pal.  Just sayin'."  :)

    The mozzarella I had was actually quite good. However, the main meal was pretty ordinary, and we were not the only table that was disappointed with our service.
