So, today I am saying goodbye to beloved #Brooklyn (rustic hipster coffee shops, the A train, shootings, and all). The movers are packing everything up right now, in the snow.
I don't like owning too much stuff so I've been busy this past week purging what I can from my <500 sqft 2 bdr, but still got my trusty #Moto360 and finally replaced my shattered #nexus5 with a #Nexus6!

Getting ready for big things ahead... #NYC #onward #SFbound

Big things ahead! wohoo - Congrats to the awesome +Google Glass​ team.
 
We’re graduating from Google[x] labs

It’s hard to believe that Glass started as little more than a scuba mask attached to a laptop. We kept on it, and when it started to come together, we began the Glass Explorer Program as a kind of “open beta” to hear what people had to say.

Explorers, we asked you to be pioneers, and you took what we started and went further than we ever could have dreamed: from the large hadron collider at CERN, to the hospital operating table; the grass of your backyard to the courts of Wimbledon; in fire stations, recording studios, kitchens, mountain tops and more.

Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we’re ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run.

Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. Glass at Work has been growing and we’re seeing incredible developments with Glass in the workplace. As we look to the road ahead, we realize that we’ve outgrown the lab and so we’re officially “graduating” from Google[x] to be our own team here at Google. We’re thrilled to be moving even more from concept to reality.

As part of this transition, we’re closing the Explorer Program so we can focus on what’s coming next. January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition. In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready. (For now, no peeking.)

Thanks to all of you for believing in us and making all of this possible. Hang tight—it’s going to be an exciting ride.

Luv 360! N6 not so much, OnePlus rocks. 
 
Happy Friday everyone! I love that we can make our own #autoawesome motions now. I noticed the feature a little while ago but didn't play with it much till now. Fun.
Also, I'm still loving the #moto360, but I do wish it wasn't as thick. Being thick it gets caught on my coat sleeve often. And of course I still got dat shattered #Nexus5. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting a #Nexus6 at some point....soon.

Awesome! :) 
 
Well 2014 is almost over! I don't know about you but that sure was a crazy year for me. Here I am apparently clawing at my hair, reaching for the finish line ;)
2015 here we come! I think it's going to be a better year, more interesting challenges and discoveries. More opportunities to push our limits and boundaries, and become ever more creative and innovative. This year I want to learn more than the past 10 years combined, that's my resolution.
What's yours?
Happy New Year my friends!

Paradoxical Traits of Creative People

"I frequently find myself thinking about whether I am an artist or an entrepreneur."  
Creative people "show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated." 

1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they're also often quiet and at rest. 

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time. 

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility. 

4.creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality. 

5. Creative people tend to be both extroverted and introverted. We're usually one or the other, either preferring to be in the thick of crowds or sitting on the sidelines and observing the passing show. Creative individuals, on the other hand, seem to exhibit both traits simultaneously. 

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time. 

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping. 

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative. 

9.most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well. 

10. Creative people's openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.
