Exciting news: we’re only 18 weeks away from Google I/O! 2016 is going to be a special year for us -- we held our first developer day 10 years ago at the Googleplex. To celebrate our 10th anniversary of developer gatherings, we’ll be hosting I/O in our backyard at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA from May 18th - 20th. We’ll have 3 full days together to dive deep into developer content, code labs, and more. If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us via I/O Live and through an I/O Extended event in your local community. Stay tuned to #io16 and +GoogleDevelopers in the coming weeks for more details.

Remembering Aaron Swartz:

"What is the most important thing you could be working on in the world right now? And if you're not working on that, why aren't you?"
@demandprogress @AnonyOps Because the government doesn't allow disabled people to do anything but live in poverty. ( You asked ). Titus Brown. Jan 11. Titus Brown @ctitusbrown .@demandprogress @tarek_ziade because I also have to eat and provide for family. what kind of silly question is this?

Google Cardboard helped save the life of a baby who was so sick that doctors told her parents to take her home to die.

Story
Introduction

I am the Developer Relations lead for Project Soli and Project Jacquard at Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP).

Prior to joining ATAP, I was the program manager at Social Impact team at Google, focused on Civic Innovation and Crisis Response. Social Impact is a team within Google that builds products to improve people’s lives by building and enabling disruptive technology that reinvents the way society addresses our shared challenges.

I started my career working at Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT)- the largest telecom in Japan for 7 years and moved to Interscope - an Internet marketing research company, then joined Digital Garage which Joichi Ito cofounded where I worked on localization of blog search engine Technorati to Technorati Japan, helped Creative Commons Japan and iCommons, invested as VC (DG Incubation) and helped startups and organized conferences such as New Context Conference and iCommons Summit. I joined Google after freelancing as a traveler, researcher, consultant and a journalist.

I am currently a fellow of Creative Commons Japan, and fellow at International University of Japan, Center for Global Communications (Glocom). I initiated various projects including Hack For Japan (an initiative to use technology for Japan to recover from 311 disaster) Tohoku Tech Dojo (an initiative to help youngsters in Tohoku learn how to code, to cultivate new industry in the area to recover from 311 disaster), and Fukko Hangout (an initiative to help people in Tohoku to convey their message directly using the Internet).

Prior to joining current team, I was Google's Developer Relations Japan country lead for 3 years before moving to US as Developer Advocate of Project OPEN at Developer Relations Team.
