What a great win for Porsche! But of course I know you weren't there for them. 😉

Congratulations +Laszlo Bock on the official launch of Work Rules!  It has my vote for "Business Book of the Year."  :)

Get it at www.workrules.net #workrules
 
We spend more time working than doing anything else in life. Yet for too many people, the experience of work is dehumanizing, demoralizing, and overly focused on the bottom line.

I don’t think it has to be this way, and I’m willing to bet you don’t either.

At Google, we’ve learned a ton about what makes for an enjoyable and productive workplace. We’re not alone – lots of other companies, ranging from Bangladeshi garment factories to Brooklyn delis, as well as academic researchers, have learned the same simple truth: there are straightforward things we can do to make work better.

My new book, Work Rules!, is an attempt to bring this together and offer you practical tools to improve work, no matter what you do.

If that resonates with you, I invite you to grab a book and join me on this journey toward better work for all. Copies are now available at www.workrules.net #workrules #google #work #hr
We spend more time working than doing anything else in life. It’s not right that the experience of work should be so demotivating and dehumanizing.Laszlo BockThis insight is the heart of WORK RULES!, a compelling and surprisingly playful manifesto with the potential to change how we work and live.Drawing on behavioral economics and human psychology, Bock provides teaching examples from a range of industries. He also reveals why Google is consiste...

For iOS-using friends, Google Calendar is now (finally!) available on Apple devices. 

Finding it in the App Store is a bit tricky with the current ranking, but here's a direct link:

+Lorne Rosenfield is on the leading edge of surgery; his use of Google Glass in plastic surgery is a good example of the "Glass at Work" direction where Glass is being used by leading users and developers for interesting and important enterprise, medical, and mobile worker applications --  https://developers.google.com/glass/distribute/glass-at-work.

And, I think Lorne's brother-in-law (and my friend), +Jonathan Rosenberg, is clearly overdue for a rhytidectomy after his many dog-years at Google (chronicled in his recent book, "How Google Works"). ;)
 
My brother in law +Lorne Rosenfield M.D. is an excellent plastic surgeon. If the addition of Google glass can lead him to "perfection" as this article suggests it might be time for me to consider a procedure(suggestions?)!!!

Dr. Rosenfield has already proven to push the learning curve with technology by performing the first plastic surgery procedure with Glass - an eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) performed in combination with a facelift procedure. He is not only helping patients but helping Google improve the technology by shedding light on the challenges for future refinement, including the limited resolution of the video camera, technical difficulties in streaming from an operating room and the need for the surgeon to keep the head in a fixed position.

http://drrosenfield.com/
The world's first plastic surgery procedure performed using Google Glass has shown promising use of the eye-wearable device in plastic surgery.

Very excited to see the impact that +Google Cloud Platform​​'s efforts in Cloud Genomics are having with +Autism Speaks​​ and the autism research/understanding community. Congratulations to +David Glazer​​ and the Team!
 
Changing the future of Autism research

A collaboration between +Autism Speaks, Google and the research community made the cover of +Nature Medicine magazine with the results from the largest ever autism genome study, MSSNG.  Along with this publication, this collaboration is making the anonymized data freely available on +Google Cloud Platform for global research.

Led by Google Engineering Director +David Glazer, Autism Speaks Chief Science Officer +Rob Ring and SickKids Hospital and University of Toronto Professor Stephen Scherer, MSSNG hopes to speed understanding of autism by enabling ‘open science’ for researchers around the world through collaborative access to data and web-based analytic tools.

Learn more about the research on the MSSNG blog post, linked below
Surprising finding makes cover of Nature Medicine; study data becomes part of historic first upload to Autism Speaks MSSNG portal for open-access research

Very well done, +Laszlo Bock! (p.s. I recommend [Add to circles])

WORK RULES! named as Inc. "best business book" of 2015, and great quote:

"Larry and Sergey had ambitions beyond developing a great search engine. They started out knowing how they wanted people to be treated. Quixotic as it sounds, they both wanted to create a company where work was meaningful, employees felt free to pursue their passions, and people and their families were cared for. Many of the most meaningful, beloved, and effective people practices at Google sprouted from seeds planted by Larry and Sergey. Our weekly all-employee meetings started when 'all' of us amounted to just a handful of people, and continue to this day even though we're now the size of a respectable city."
 
Inc. not only named my WORK RULES! "best business book" of 2015, but also included their favorite quote.  Very cool!

+Jeff Huber what do you think of the military implications of this stuff? I am blown away by the technical achievements of the BD team, but I feel significant fear that these types of robots will be used by governments to control or kill humans...it seems virtually inevitable, no? Human boots on the ground at least have the option to disobey orders, but remote drone operators can be monitored, tested and replaced. How confident are you that the positives will outweigh the negatives?

Great place for weekend brunches and creative pizzas. I prefer the thin crust pizzas over the regular crust. It can be pretty hectic on nice weekends, so call ahead for a table. The outside seating is dog-friendly.

The best typical Costa Rican food in the area. Even picky kids endorsed it as "the best", particularly when followed up by a great ice cream sundae delivered in a half pineapple.
