Promising early results on Monetization in AMP.
When the AMP team set out to help make mobile experiences great for everybody, the objective wasn’t just to improve a user’s engagement with content. We knew the experience people had with ads was …

Check out this great talk by +Malte Ubl​. Many of the things AMP does can be applied to your own website.
 
The video of my Google IO about "How AMP achieves its speed" was just posted on YouTube. The talk contains some numbers as to what actual performance we see in the wild (spoiler: better than 1 second median load time without pre-rendering). My main goal was to show that AMP is just web-tech and most optimization techniques can be applied to non-AMP sites.

AMP is about more than just raw load performance, though. With features such as pre-rendering and swiping between search results we are pushing what is possible in terms of UX on the web and with native-web integrations. These new features require cooperation between web pages and the embedding apps (which AMP implements) and while we are just getting started, I'm super excited about the new possibilities this opens up.

With all the talk of access speeds, people are forgetting the most important question an ISP can ask: "Would you like fries with that website?"

It's never a good idea to ask the internet to name things.

This is super cool!
This is not your granddad’s moonshot. Russian billionaire Yuri Milner and physicist Stephen Hawking have announced Breakthrough Starshot, a $100-million initiative to develop spacecraft that would send probes all the way to Alpha Centauri, the nearest star system.

From Warren Buffet's shareholder letter:

"Our second reason for initiating a webcast is more important. Charlie is 92, and I am 85. If we were partners with you in a small business, and were charged with running the place, you would want to look in occasionally to make sure we hadn’t drifted off into la-la land. Shareholders, in contrast, should not need to come to Omaha to monitor how we look and sound. (In making your evaluation, be kind: Allow for the fact that we didn’t look that impressive when we were at our best.)"

So hilarious.

+Mike Trieu I agree. Superman's suit should generate some kind of Anti-Kryptonite radiation field around him.

Super nifty. Someday hope to get one in my camera! I'm a sharpness junkie. :)
A flat lens made of paint whitener on a sliver of glass could revolutionise optics, its US inventors say.

This is awesome. The software will need to be extra tight ( and I mean toight ) to handle fast frame rates (or internal buffers extra large), but this tech could conceivably give photographers not only unequaled sharpness, but also an unprecedented amount of creative control/license in the process of producing the final image. I'm thinking customized software filters/templates for the "nanopillar" elements, much like Photoshop filters or Lightroom presets. Will definitely be keeping an eye out for this...

If you are coming to Google I/O come check out our talks on AMP, Search and the Mobile web. There's a lot of great content this year!
 
I'm speaking at Google IO this week about "How AMP achieves its speed" (Friday at 2pm). Hope to meet you there in person and if you can't make it the talk will also be live streamed. Also, don't miss +Alex Russell's talk right afterwards that talks about how AMPs relate to Progressive Web Apps (PWAs).

Also, +Richard Gingras is speaking Thursday about "Search and the mobile content ecosystem" which will probably cover many aspects of AMP as well.

All the details here:

That explains why I couldn't get a decently close hotel room this week!

So proud to finally show off some of the advanced research my team is working on!
AMP was founded with the vision that publishers can create mobile-optimized content once and have it load instantly everywhere. Now widely available, the AMP experience has been likened to magic (s…

Great technical overview of how AMP is fast by our very own AMP Tech Lead +Malte Ubl. You don't need to know this stuff to make an AMP page, and that's one of the nice things about it. You can make an insanely fast page by just using it, without being a web expert like Malte. But if you want to peek a bit behind the curtain, this is a great video.

The food and service were excellent. The NY Strip was HUGE yet still perfectly cooked throughout and very tasty. Lots of vegetarian options. A bit pricey.
