My friend and once again colleague, Norm Jouppi, has just been awarded the highest honor for a computer architect. 

Almost exactly 20 years ago, on a Saturday, I received a phone call in my graduate student office from Norm inviting me to interview for a research position at DEC Western Research Lab. That moment is still today a highlight of my career. "Norm Jouppi knew who I was??"

Those of you who know Norm: please embarrass him publicly with all the praise he deserves for this recognition. :-)

All of us that love science and knowledge stand on the shoulders of the gentlest of giants, +Anurag Acharya, who with Alex Verstak have built Google Scholar (scholar.google.com). Some of the most fun I had at Google was when I had a chance to work with them.

+Steven Levy tells a bit of this story so well.
 
Here's a look at Anurag Acharya and Google Scholar on the service's tenth anniversary.  Anurag just can't quit it.

Google’s tool for empowering research is 10 years old. Its founder is just beginning.

More information on the networking gear we have been building at Google for the last decade or so is being made public today. It's an amazing story that many of us have been waiting a long time to talk about, so I'm delighted to see it out there.

It is an accomplishment for not only our design teams but our deployment and operations teams just as much.

I've argued the Google networking team has providing a key piece of the "magic" that enabled every other part of Google that runs anything in a data center. The network infrastructure really is incredible due not just to it's impressive BW/latency/etc, but the cost at which it was built (which probably was not discussed explicitly).

+Jim Dehnert's many wonderful bird photos has gotten me hooked into learning how to take wildlife pictures, so I thought I'd share this one to thank him for the inspiration.

For iOS-using friends, Google Calendar is now (finally!) available on Apple devices. 

Finding it in the App Store is a bit tricky with the current ranking, but here's a direct link:

A bit more than 11 years ago we installed our 1000th rack, shown here on the loading dock.  We knew it was #1000 so we tricked it out a bit. These racks were a bit cleaner than the original corkboard racks :-)  We called them fridges because...well, I don't know why.  

Just to clarify we didn't actually have 1000 live racks at that time, since many older racks had been retired.  This was the 1000th Google-designed rack ever produced.

Yesterday the Ivanpah solar plant went live.  It's in the desert near Las Vegas, and uses thousands of mirrors to concentrate light onto a tower, generating heat and power.  To acknowledge the investment by Google, they reoriented some mirrors :-)
