I am very excited about this technology. In fact, I think it may enable Mark Weiser's vision of how technology should work (http://jarekwilkiewicz.com/blog/2014/04/the-most-profound-technologies-disappear/). Congrats +Dan Brickley, +Samuel Goto, +Markus Lanthaler,  +Jason Johnson, Jason Douglass, and many others who contributed to the spec! 
When we launched schema.org almost 3 years ago, our main focus was on providing vocabularies for describing entities --- people, places, movies, restaurants, ...  But the Web is not just about static descriptions of entities...

I am working on an Android Wear codelab. I tried the RecipeAssistant example and it works perfect. Now I am adding additional features using +Freebase  and +YouTube  APIs.
I will give this codelab next April 10, in an event organized by the +GDG Santa Fe , and after that I will release the code of the project and codelab slides.

Congrats to +Sander Dieleman for winning the Galaxy Zoo competition on Kaggle. 

Naturally, Sander used a convolutional net, combined with data augmentation, max-over-locations, and a few other tricks.

Sander is a PhD student at Reservoir Lab at Gent University in Belgium, and works on deep learning and music information retrieval (I heard one of his talks at NYU on ConvNets for MIR a little while ago). http://reslab.elis.ugent.be/sander

Kudos to him for the detailed description of all the tricks: http://benanne.github.io/2014/04/05/galaxy-zoo.html

A nice high level overview of the work Jeff Hawkins is doing at +Numenta, Inc. 
I also enjoyed this presentation Jeff Hawkins gave at Stanford's e-Corner (STVP) a few years ago: http://ecorner.stanford.edu/authorMaterialInfo.html?mid=2217 entitled "Inside the Mind of a Reluctant Entrepreneur"

Sadly I'm an "Integrator", are you? 
 
I love that we do fairly sophisticated longitudinal studies about people and our workplaces in order to determine all kinds of interesting trends and to figure out ways to make people happier, healthier, and more productive. Two years into a hundred year study!

Nice writeup, +Laszlo Bock! I look forward to the final report in 2112.
