I'm back in my house in Sweden, for the next few weeks. It's been a cold spring in Sweden (everyone complains) but that means I get to see more flowers in bloom than usual in my yard. And, yes, that's the Swedish and Californian flags you see flying! Sorry, no pics of me in the hammock yet; it's been too cold...

Spending today in the company of books, at the British Library in London. I also got to see their excellent exhibition about the Magna Carta, which featured two originals of the 13th century document, Jefferson's handwritten draft of the US Declaration of Independence and the Wikipedia article about Magna Carta in embroidered form (see pictures). Loving it!

Working from Google's London office today. Nothing says UK more than finding random passers-by wearing Dr Who t-shirts.

Fellow Whovians +James Cha+Ashleigh Rentz and +Susanne Omander might enjoy this.

Every now and then something like this happens and I realize we live in the future. I got a call while at #io15 , so I couldn't answer. But Google transcribed it and sent the text to me.

It's not always I wear a Batman mask, but when I do, it's in front of 500 co-workers and community members at the GDG Global Summit.

Thanks, +Bill Luan, for snapping and sharing the photo!

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.
