Thanks for the updates to Google Classroom, +Google for Education. What I'd really like to see opened up next is a method for parents and guardians to participate or view what's happening in the shared classroom.  Teaching is best when it's a team effort, and parents should very much be part of that team!

I really had no idea at exactly how much production went into setting up a single concert showing!

When Comcast acquired NBCUniversal, a lot of analysts anticipated that the company would sell off the Florida-based Universal theme park quickly.  I'm glad that we kept them -- and that the theme park is growing, and doing better than it ever did!
After Comcast bought NBCUniversal four years ago, it surprised some by not only hanging onto the company’s theme parks, but investing heavily in their expansion.

My oldest, +Julian Seabury, has taken a recent, keen interest in blacksmithing. Introducing him to ABANA.

"ABANA is dedicated to perpetuating the noble art of blacksmithing. ABANA encourages and facilitates the training of blacksmiths; disseminates information about sources of material and equipment."
The Artist Blacksmiths' Association of North America is the preeminent blacksmith organization in the world. With thousands of members worldwide, ABANA seeks to advance all forms of blacksmithing and metalworking. We actively seek new members that are involved in all forms of artistic endeavor as well as non-artist, supporters of the arts.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
In 1870, Jules Verne wrote 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It has become a classic science fiction novel, and Jules Verne is recognized as a writer who was far ahead of his time. 

In 1916, the Universal Film Manufacturing Company (now Comcast/NBC Universal) became the first studio to do underwater filming, producing an adaptation of Jules Verne's works by director Stuart Paton. 

Catch a glimpse of what silent film-making was like back in the early 1900's, and imagine yourself viewing this with friends in a crowded nickelodeon.

The FCC approved AT&T's bid to acquire DirecTV.  Is AT&T "fighting yesterday's war", or was this a smart, strategic play?
Now that AT&T has finally closed its $48.5 billion purchase of DirecTV, what will it do with its new satellite TV prize?

People hardly ever use their smartphone to make phone calls anymore.  People use smartphones primarily to text and secondly to surf the net; voice comes in a distant third. Why? Calling isn't fun; it's not cool.

One of the coolest phones I had was a Motorola I670 Nextel, with the Push-To-Talk feature. On a phone that behaved like a Walkie-Talkie, you could talk with an individual or an entire team, faster than texting.

Zello brings that PTT functionality back to (just about) any smartphone.  You can create your own "channels" (i.e., a private channel for your direct or extended family), tune in to public channels, or have one-on-one conversations with those on your contact list.  You can also play back messages that you might have missed while away from the phone.

Perhaps ... but Microsoft skipped the odd-number here (there was no Windows 9) -- so technically this would have been an odd-numbered release if they had stuck to a sequential numbering scheme.

Wow, so cool!
Drop a basketball from a height, you've got a few flights of stairs to descend to retrieve it and you might even owe an apology to an angry passer-by. But if you give it enough height and add a dash of backspin, you can watch it say GOODBYE, FRIEND as it curves a great distance away from its intended flight path. This is the Magnus effect, where the descending, spinning basketball drags air around it, forming areas of lower pressure and high pres...

#Google  moves forward in its plans to give free #wifi  to the world by converting an estimated 10,000 old #NYC  phone booths into ad-supported Wi-Fi pillars with a Google backed startup, +Sidewalk Labs. The converted booths will also have cell-phone charging, free domestic phone calls and a tablet interface with information about the city and transit directions. The pillars will be launched across #NewYork  this autumn.

Sr. Director, Business Architecture - Comcast
Introduction
About Me: I'm a Sr. Director of Business Architecture at Comcast Business.  I head up the team that is doing Salesforce.com Requirements and Planning.  In this role, I work with end-users, stakeholders, business leaders, product managers, project managers, business leaders, developers and architects. Together, we develop wiz-bang-wow-awesome solutions on the Salesforce CRM platform.

My team helps design solutions that allow Comcast employees to connect with customers in a meaningful way, transforming the cusotmer experience through intelligent CRM design.

I love Customers and I love showing companies how to take better care of their customers. And while you don't necessarily need systems to engage well with customers, I believe it helps. My CRM tool of choice is Salesforce.com. I've been showing companies how to do more with Salesforce for over 10 years. I'm a Salesforce MVP and cloud-computing evangelist (rock 'on, Salesforce, Google and Amazon!). I'm a fan of all things tech, but I love unplugging on the weekend.

Note: The opinions expressed on Google+ are my own and not that of my employer. But if they knew what was good for them, the opinions I express on Google+ would be theirs, too.

How can I help you?

Not my usual eye care shop, but when I needed glasses to be ready in 2 hours, they delivered in a way my regular optometrist couldn't (two weeks vs 2 hours?). Thank you, LensCrafters.

Food was very slow to come out (almost 40 minutes!). Waitress was inattentive, and their were only 3 tables occupied in our section. I'd come to give them a 2nd chance to impress.

Family favorite. Tex-Mex (not authentic Mexican), but decidedly yummy with good, friendly service. Try the Tijuana Dance Hall burrito, thank me later.
