And then...

Vic Gundotra leaving Google after nearly 8 years.
 
And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....
+Vic Gundotra

24 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, Ontario = The Prime Minister of Canada's house
19 = The legal drinking age in Ontario
18 = The age of the girl the paramedics found with alcohol poisoning inside 24 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, Ontario

In case you don't realize the importance of this:
The Prime Minister of Canada allowed underage drinking in his house to such a degree that an underage girl got alcohol poisoning.

He is setting a terrible example for our country, not to mention that he would have been legally responsible if that girl had died.

Paramedics were called to 24 Sussex Dr. on Saturday, reportedly to attend to an 18-year-old girl with suspected alcohol poisoning.

Plus it's not Harper's kid who the ambulance was called for. Is he supposed to count the number of drinks each of his friends has? Do you count how many drinks people have when they come to your house? :)

A bit of a wait to get in at dinner, but to be expected given the namesake. Beer selection is outstanding and they offer tastings if your unsure - the waitress even offered to replace an entire beer because I saw did tasted a bit different (in a good way though). The food is OUTSTANDING. I had the Farm Burger (duck bacon and egg) and it was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The Parmesan fries are also highly recommended. Price was reasonable as well. Would definitely eat here again.

Great food, service and price. For being on the strip, the price were affordable. Had the BBQ Nachos - have to say they just might have been the best Nachos I've had. Who ever thought of baked beans and pulled pork on Nachos? Would definitely recommend and come back again.

Great little ski hill in the middle of town. First time skiing for my son and the instructors were great and patient.

Great dining experience, food was excellent. Had the Pad Thai, kids had the Shaken Beef and Mango chicken. All three dishes were outstanding.

An absolute treat to dine here. It is a tad on the expensive side, but you can easily get your money's worth if you're a meat lover. Great salad bar, wide selection of meat and the kids loved it.
