Beta-test Google Glass!
[Jumping on the bandwagon]
Seeking Glass Explorers: goo.gl/PbKWr

Last year we showed Glass to the world for the first time - we jumped out of airships, crashed New York Fashion Week and even took a ride on the subway. It’s been an exhilarating journey so far and there’s a lot more to come, but we can’t go it alone. We’re developing new technology that is designed to be unobtrusive and liberating, and so far we’ve only scratched the surface of the true potential of Glass.

Now we want you to get involved and that’s why today we’re expanding our Glass Explorer Program. We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. Glass is still in the early stages, so we expect there will be some twists and turns along the way. While we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting. 

We’d love to make everyone a Glass Explorer, but we’re starting a bit smaller. So, if you want to be one of the first Explorers, go to www.google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one to find out how.

Congratulations to the patent search team! Exciting to see the Prior Art Finder and European patents.

This is now live for everyone. I'm really excited!
We’re launching +1 recommendations! +1’ing something has always been a fun and lightweight way to engage with online content. It’s also a powerful discovery tool, making it easier for friends to find the best content by showing social annotations in search results and ads, and now we’re taking it to the next level. 

Try it out!  Recommendations are currently available to our platform preview group -- you can join the group here:  http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/platform-preview/ 

Once you’ve joined, go hover a +1 and discover recommendations for other awesome (on site) content!

Delighted to see this out. Nice work, team! (And I'm happy to have helped a bit with the configuration tool.)
Psyched that my team just shipped a Google+ share button. Any website can embed it, and bam -- their users will be able to easily share stuff they like to their people on G+. Here's the blog post:

An update on Google Patent Search (where I'm an engineer): we've done some cleaning up to give a more consistent experience for people doing patent searches on Google. We converted the home page of Patent Search to a patents-mode version of the Google home page. You can tell that you're in patents mode from the hint text ("Search patents") in the search box. You'll get exactly the same search results as before.

I'd love to hear from users of Patent Search. The new look is just the beginning; we're looking forward to making more improvements, including data from additional patent agencies.

That.
Absolutely beautiful map of the wind, by Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg. (Yes, one of the great things about working at Google is that your colleagues do so many other amazing things.)

Great stuff! Congratulations to the entire team on a great visualization and a great launch!
Updates to Ripples: 60+ languages; see how links get shared
#googleplusupdate #ripples

Back in October, we launched ripples to help visualize how public posts get shared on Google+ (http://goo.gl/6qhVu). Today we're rolling out two improvements that bring ripples to more people, and more types of content. Check out a new ripple (http://goo.gl/6se8K)!

1) Like the rest of Google+ (http://goo.gl/1eSl0), ripples are now available in over 60 languages. So whether you prefer Viwimbi, Strengir, or Jeka, you can now watch the content you care about flow across the network.

2) Ripples can now show you how links get shared, not just individual posts. Take +Sundar Pichai 's recent post about Chrome for Android, for example (http://goo.gl/u60O7):

- Before, ripples would only display activity around Sundar's specific post.
- Today, because Sundar attached a link to his post, ripples displays all public shares of that URL, all across Google+.
- To use this new feature, simply "View ripples" on any publicly-shared post with a link attachment (see screenshot), or visit a ripples page, then type the URL you're interested in.

As always, leave comments to let us know what you think!
