+Leo Laporte+Jason Howell​ Are you guys doing an end-of-year highlights episode for This Week in Google? I seem to recall that you did last year. If you are, I have a submission or two. (And if I'm talking to the wrong people about this or on the wrong platform, please let me know.)

It's going to be nearly impossible to top my first birthday present. I think I've found my new favorite T-shirt.

This.
 
Excellent follow-up from +Andy Ihnatko 

I recognized this kid immediately. This was me when I was in public school. Even in sixth grade, my classroom cubby contained a lunchbox filled with batteries, wires, and random circuits. In later years, I had technical manuals and printouts filled with arcane symbols that I knew were 6502 assembler opcodes but could have been coded German Army ENIGMA signals for all my teachers knew. I might have had the components of busted floppy drives in my bookbag. During a frustrated, failure-filled period when I was trying to master photographic printmaking, my bookbag might have contained brown bottles filled with stinky chemicals.

Absolutely a must-read.

Although we think of technologists as bright-eyed optimists — A computer in every home! Cars that drive themselves! — programmers are actually pessimistic, paranoid lunatics. I say this with love, because I respect the hell out of the mindset.

Or not, I suppose. Harvey was the hero New York deserved, but not the one it needed right then.

I recently exported my drawn items data to a JSON file through the mobile Android app. However, when I try to import it again, IITC Mobile doesn't recognize it as a file type it will take (i.e. it's grayed out in the file picker). How can I get the data in the JSON file back into IITC Mobile?

I wasn't using Google Drive; it was stored locally on my phone. I suggest you have it stored locally as well.

Use a file manager to rename it. I use ES File Manager. Search for "drawn" or something else that was in the file name to find it. Copy or move it to the Downloads folder (if it's not already there) and change the file extension. When you try to import to IITC Mobile, it shouldn't be hard to get to the Downloads folder, from which you can import it into the app once more.

I think he'd make a good community manager. Take a good, hard look at this guy!

+Niantic Project #HULK4IngressGCM
 
I don't ask for much from Ingression fans, but if  #HULK4IngressGCM  happened to get re-shared and trending in a bunch of tagged posts to +Niantic Project  that would be really awesome and make me super happy as well as probably help the resume I'm sending in.

And come on I know there's lots of friendly X-fac players: but I've got a proven track record of working with the community with 0 faction bias (ingression is proof) and showing it love; I Ingress hardcore (remember that 5m AP in a week or the speed-gress 1 day solo art?); I will and can move to SFbay in a heartbeat (i still need those uniques) and I'll even publicly tone down the sex jokes and not say anything bad about iOS (although my eye may twitch a little cause of it).

So what do you say guys  #HULK4IngressGCM   ?
