Coding on the night train with a cup of tea at my side and no meetings on the agenda; the best kind of coding.

It's egret nesting season at Google's Mountain View campus, which means Shorebird Way has been blocked off not to disturb the baby birds. I love it!

+Lisa Borel Good idea! Turning that road into a sanctuary would be completely feasible. All buildings along the road have vehicle access from other other roads. Would be nice to turn it into a mini-park/bird sanctuary, both for people and birds.

Why are our current emoji only men? Here are some women emojis. Let's hope the Unicode Consortium approves them.
"Isn’t it time that emoji also reflect the reality that women play a key role in every walk of life and in every profession?"

This is the country with the huge child sex trade, right? And the government is worried about controlling the message...

Story
Tagline
Aim for where the ball is going, not where it is now.
Introduction
I work at Google with Startup Outreach and tend to post here about startups, computer history, and the occasional Swedish factoid.
Bragging rights
I bike to work *every* day. There is no such thing as poor weather, just poor clothing.

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!

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.
