Some neat pieces from Sean Newport, showing at the new Alite store in the Mission. Each did really intricate things with the shadows from the overhead lighting.

Nice. My old group at Google worked closely with these people in their early stages. Glad to see it getting off the ground.
 
A great new initiative to help protect our marine environment.

Fun project at work -- building racks for our rapidly-increasing herd of bikes.

Yeah, just running the photosphere app vertically. Some misalignment with the chainlink fence, but I was in a hurry :)

Introduction
I'm now at Google, designing and engineering user interfaces for a Google.org project called Earth Engine.

From my former bio at Samasource.org:

Eric Nguyen, Vice President of Product Management : Eric has been building products for the web for over ten years, ever since the business plan competitions of his undergraduate years. Since then, he has helped grow five start ups in the Bay Area. These include Merced Systems (enterprise software for call centers) and Instructables.com (fun, user-generated content, acquired by Autodesk in 2011). At the same time, Eric has always been a part-time social entrepreneur. Squeezed into sabbaticals, nights, and weekends, he has used his technology experience to address social inequities that he sees in the world. He has developed records management systems for a hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo and a school in Vietnam, and has helped several non-profits maintain an online presence. He joined Samasource to help achieve its major goal: to bring digital work and skills to the next billion. Eric received his Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Harvard University.

Tasty coffee (including some interesting variations you won't find elsewhere) and some good pastries. A great place to stop if you're just on your way somewhere, but there's no place to work for an extended amount of time or anything.

Espresso drinks are passable and the Wifi can be spotty. But the Baristas and owners are such lovely people, I still come all the time. The decor is Ikea-clean. Bello around the corner has better coffee, but it's often just too crowded.

It's a lovely store with lots of beautiful gear. They also fixed a chronic noise my bike was making (ungreased pedals threads!) that a couple other places didn't figure out.

Leon showed up a bit late, but fixed our dishwasher in short order. He also provided a lot of advice on which parts of the machine were quality and which were junk. He even helped out with an unrelated task, unbidden.

Great personality, free WiFi, non-hipsterfied for the occasions when you need to get away from that. Okay coffee.

Fantastic, fresh entrees. Different every time you go. I had an amazing burger and fries with subtle flavors throughout. Coffee was also great, and service impeccable.
