Another season of Little League coaching ... in the books

My kids love baseball (and so do I). In fact, I've pretty much raised them on it. Now that my four year old and six year old are both in Little League, they are constantly playing in the backyard and making each other better. Their constant practice has made them great players and leaders on their teams - even at a young age. It's been a lot of fun to watch, and be part of, as their dad and as an assistant coach to both teams. 

Already looking forward to them both playing at the next level starting next season as they move up. /cc +Kristine Gray

Google Workshop: Measure Success With Website Analytics

Here's a quick video I did yesterday on +Google Analytics, talking about setting up goals and meeting objectives for your business online. Good to be back in the studio.
 
GA Workshop: Measure success with website analytics

Yesterday we recorded an intro video on Google Analytics goals from Analytics Advocate +Louis Gray. This video teaches you how to measure your website traffic to understand your customers,  improve your online business, and how you can set measurement goals that are right for your business and learn how to use data to make better business decisions. Run time is just under 20 minutes.

The Verge Takes On Online Photo Storage Services
/via +Casey Newton for +The Verge 

Regarding Google+, he says: "Google’s take on photos is still easy to recommend. It offers you unlimited free uploads at a size of 2048 pixels, and it applies some really fun effects to your photos: turning bursts of pictures into looping GIFs, and automatically creating slick vacation photo albums whenever you spend a few days away from home. By default Google shows you highlights of your photos rather than your entire timeline, giving you a pleasing high-level view of your collection. And its web-based editing tools are superb."

Check out the article. Good stuff.
In August 2013, we reviewed the best services for storing your photos in the cloud. Nearly two years later, much has changed. Everpix, our pick for average users, went out of business. Picturelife,...

My kids' first Chromebooks arrived today
#chromeos #chromebooks #chromies

On Monday, a colleague alerted me to Walmart's featuring refurbished Acer Chromebook 11 laptops for only $129 each. I've been openly thinking about getting them Chromebooks for a while, as their reading and writing improves, and this deal was too good to pass up. Shockingly, they arrived today - two days early. Amazing. Getting them set up, as you can expect, is a breeze.

The Web is what you make of it.

I'm in Seattle today and just wrapped up a presentation at Search Marketing Expo Advanced on bringing +Google Analytics​ and AdWords together. (http://g.co/GoogleBP) With the clouds clearing outside the conference center, it makes for a very nice view. The fun colors inside the meeting room weren't so bad either.

On Google, Apple and Silicon Valley's Homeric Struggle With Diversity
#io15   #siliconvalley   #google   #diversity  

+Selena Larson was among the many of us (myself included) happy to see some of Google's women engineers representing the company on stage today. Working at Google, I interact daily with elite female colleagues, and seeing them on stage is commonplace. But it's a rarity in tech, and this should change. Good signs are good signs, but there's a lot more to do. Thanks for writing this up, Selena.
The trouble with cheering Google I/O's diverse keynote.

Preaching to Our Choirs and Setting Up Blinders for All Else
/via +louisgray.com  #filters   #siliconvalley  

"Our personal positions on politics, sports, and yes, even technology, have us in a constant state of affirmation seeking, and the desire to be part of a group of like-minded people, to reinforce our position and strengthen our decided upon beliefs, that we just might be right. And should somebody in our streams disagree with us, or launch into an off topic rant, we can easily unfollow them, and "clean up" the channel."

Yes, I could not agree more that:

"The world is a vibrant tapestry, not monochrome, and I don't want to be the thirty-second person to talk about the same things everyone else is. We should embrace a world focused on curiosity, not compliance."

Yeah verily, even so much as to say - I agree +Louis Gray ! :-)

Getting Electricity from the Sun, not from the Grid

Elon Musk's announcement of Tesla Energy yesterday is fantastic and good news, offering more ways to get off the electricity grid through the power of solar. Here in California, where we've got plenty of sun (and no rain), my +Sunrun solar panels have been exceptionally busy. In April, we had 29 days out of 30 where we gave significant energy back to the grid. On April 30, we used less than one kilowatt hour.

Going solar was our best move of 2014. If you haven't seen the Tesla announcement, watch it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKORsrlN-2k

+Louis Gray May i ask you a question, how much KW-system do you have on your roof in CA?
It's a big different between 250watt panels(even they have 96 cells) and a 390Watt
http://www.grapesolar.com/specs-390w-mono-gs-s-390-ts.html
and im sure that your solar provider have kinda "Buy Back" program, to replace newer panels that produce more for allot less.. i also pretty sure, you will no longer in the negative anymore...

mine will be this http://pdf.directindustry.com/pdf/kyocera-solar/ku-80-1000v-series/20655-607758.html
more than enough just with 8 panels on a solar tracker it comes with a pallet of 22 panels, heh, who knows, i add another tracker next to it just for the heck... and get money from net-metering :D whatever i over-produced, on the end of the year get money back from the grid(Cash-cow)...

Found This Sphinx Moth In Our Front Yard Today

I was all set to take my 4 year old to Little League this morning when I spotted this big and beautiful moth in the front yard. It was too picturesque to ignore. After giving it the photographic treatment, I released the moth in our back yard on our tree, so it can continue on its mission. (Hat tip to +Terrie Gray for identifying)

A Smiling Crab from Santa Cruz

My kids have been on Spring Break all week. Today, I joined them and ditched the office to head to the beach. While there, we met one of the natives, who carried big pinchers, but was quite friendly, as you can see. It was fun to see the crab scuttle sideways, but he didn't get far. Eventually, we released him and he's no doubt sleeping off the experience.
