Since I rarely post publicly, those following me only because I worked at Google can remove me now. 

For all others: You can expect more posts from me in the future…now that I have more time to be social :-)

Taken this morning,…on my last drive into work as a 'Zoogler'.

My next challenge awaits me in the new year…in a place where it never snows.

I'll miss Google and I'll miss the snow…but I'm looking forward to what the future brings.

Happy new year!

Tonight was a nice night to roast marshmallows with the family while watching the Lyrid meteor shower.

I don't post publicly much, but I'm making an exception as I'm proud of what my wife, +Carla Rippstein, is doing today...she's going out of her comfort zone to give a talk at The Powerhouse event tonight in Zurich!

The topic she was asked to speak about focuses on 'reinventing yourself in Switzerland'. From the pieces she's shared with me, her talk is a mix of personal and professional info from the past, present and future...with some motivational thoughts mixed in for those looking for it  

The other two talks tonight sound interesting too...definitely a good event to attend and a great group to get involved with (assuming you live near Zurich).

Tonight's event is sold out, but here's where you can find more info:

Hopefully a recorded version of her talk will be made available for those who couldn't attend in person. I will let you know if this happens (likely to be hosted on her website at
