5 years ago…

5 years ago I became a Google Top Contributor, which has enabled me to help thousands of people with everything from Google Chrome to the latest and greatest, such as Google Home, Google Pixel and Android Auto. It has also allowed me to travel to some beautiful places and to meet some of the most humble, knowledgeable and friendly people I have ever met and for that I couldn’t be more grateful.

Technology is constantly evolving, which ensures that someone somewhere will always be searching for answers. Half a decade later (where did that go?!) Google communities receive over 900,000 questions a year, 85% of which receive a response within 24 hours!

From preventing critical bugs from reaching the product to the simple act of helping someone regain access to their account, I’m so proud of our community.

Here’s to the next 5 years in the +Google Top Contributor Program!

This is a throwback to a few months ago when I was fortunate enough to visit the Kykkos Monastery in Cyprus. This is near to where the first President of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios III started his ecclesiastical career as a monk in 1926 -- absolutely beautiful place!

The archaeological park is pretty spectacular. I tend to swing by there every time I'm up in Paphos, and I've lost track of the number of photos I've taken there.

At least you didn't come home with a Straw Donkey. ;-)

Let's Encrypt 2016 in review

It has never been easier to move to HTTPS, which is important because browsers will soon update their user interfaces to better reflect the risks associated with non-secure connections.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
