3 years ago we embarked on a project to put computing inside a contact lens -- an immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health.  While I am delighted at the progress that project has made, I could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into -- a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.  The efforts it has spawned include  a nanodiagnostics platform, a cardiac and activity monitor, and the Baseline Study.

It’s a huge undertaking, and I am delighted to announce that the life sciences team is now ready to graduate from our X lab and become a standalone Alphabet company, with Andy Conrad as CEO.  While the reporting structure will be different, their goal remains the same. They’ll continue to work with other life sciences companies to move new technologies from early stage R&D to clinical testing—and, hopefully—transform the way we detect, prevent, and manage disease.  
   
The team is relatively new but very diverse including software engineers, oncologists, and optics experts.  This is the type of company we hope will thrive as part of Alphabet and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

Time to start thinking about the future of the open web. "Taken together, Apple News and Facebook Instant Articles are the saddest refutation of the open web revolution possible: they are incompatible proprietary publishing systems entirely under the control of huge corporations, neither of which particularly understands publishing or media. Earlier this year, I called Facebook the new AOL; Instant Articles comes from the same instinct as AOL trying to bring Time Warner's media content into its app just before the web totally kicked its ass."
It's going to get worse before it gets better

I hope the Philae module can receive some sunlight and send to us a few pics from the ground.

Computer scientists have found that robots evolve more quickly and efficiently after a virtual mass extinction modeled after real-life disasters such as the one that killed off the dinosaurs. Beyond implications for artificial intelligence, the research supports the idea that mass extinctions actually speed up evolution by unleashing new creativity in adaptations.

Curious to see what will happen in the near future.

Thx +Edward Boute  for sharing.

Tech culture is very fond of persistence, stubbornness, perseverance, and the idea that you should never give up. We're surrounded by stories of visionaries who were told they'd never succeed and went on to change the world. But sometimes, you should put selection bias aside and, yes, give up.  This applies to big companies perhaps even more than for startups. Big companies have entire strategy teams devoted to working out what to do...

Should not miss this one when visiting the Cevennes. You can combine the trip from Anduze to Saint Jean du Gard with a visit to the Aquarium in Saint Jean du Gard and/or on the way back visit La Bambouseraie. All is well-organized, crowdy but not over commercialized. Employees are helpfull and friendly, clearly a committed team. tip 1: if you want to enjoy the true flavor of steam and burned coal: pick the first wagons behind the locomotive. However, expect to get some black on your face! tip 2: you can take your own lunch and picknick tables are available free of charge, even without consumption.
