Before knowing the results I must say the lottery at this point feels like a much better option. Also feel free to discard all of those who didn't check the developer box :-)

My son and I killed a lemon today... with a dollar bill! No extra equipment or trickery needed; just a lemon and a dollar bill. Fun!

Did the lemon challenge you to put your money where your mouth is?

Comcast has given money to every single senator examining their proposed merger with Time Warner Cable. Care to guess whether the senators will approve the merger?

We need more competition, not less. Opening up competition among cable ISPs has led to more consumer choice, higher speeds and lower costs in Europe.

Note to self: do not park inside any Google buildings unless I want to get clamped.

In 2007, 80% of businesses used open source software because it was cheap. Today, 80% of businesses use open source software because it is high quality.

Reminds me of Linus's Law: "Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow".

Oh, I agree completely, +Martin Omander. Just feeling a little shell shocked. Heartbleed in particular is so unbelievably bad. And odds are very high that closed source code is at least as bad -- and isn't getting the same NSA fear-driven scrutiny that is exposing these issues.

What is the worst thing about the portrayal of software development in movies? Developers have voted. I wanted to check all of them. But I also think that the right alternative won.

I'd vote for a more general option, that software development is portrayed as something that's easy. You hit some keys and BAM there is the app or you cracked the system.

My son and I are attending the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival at Google today. Lots of fun! Right now, +Peter Norvig, director of research at Google is speaking. After that, we're off to hunt prime numbers, at table 17 of course.

Happy 50th birthday, System 360! This was the first standardized mainframe computer, and NASA used five of them to help get the astronauts to the moon. Also, I had no idea IBM is still selling a 360-compatible system, called System Z.
 
April 7, 1964: +IBM announces the System/360.

750,000 additions per second... I wonder how many billions a modern desktop can do.

Our family has been going to Dr Golgoun for a decade now. She does a great job with pain management for adults, and she does very well with our kids. As a matter of fact, I'm not able to scare the kids that we'll have to go to the dentist if they don't brush their teeth. They love Dr Golgoun!

Best sushi I have had in years. Quite inconspicuous, a real hidden gem.

Open daily but especially good first Saturday every month when they have open house. Great docents, most of whom served at Nike batteries during the cold war.
