I just cleaned out 4GB of precious memory by deleting all local copies of photos from my phone. The photos are backed up on Google+ anyway, so I figured I can get them from there any time I want. Was this foolhardy or smart? Discuss.

This's an easy way to share your photos with friends from NSA.

All right! Let's see them pull out of the Shoreline Regional Community tax district entirely, saving themselves from the inevitable flooding, opening up space for new startups who can use the tax break, and paying a responsible fair share to Silicon Valley public school teachers!

Went indoor skydiving with my daughter at iFly in Union City. Great fun -- we're going back next weekend!

Meet Toa Mata Band, the World's first LEGO robotic band controlled by Arduino devices! And they cover my favorite Depeche Mode song: Everything Counts.

Overheard in a bar tonight.
Guy 1: "I refuse to tell Google Now where is home and where is work."
Guy 2: "Yeah, and it pretends not to know."

"If you file a ticket, yo, we'll resolve it." Google's Real Estate and Work Space (REWS) team is awesome and always provide top-notch help when I'm running developer events in Google offices.

Attended Eric Schmidt's interview with Henry Kissinger at Google this morning. Two very interesting people. When Schmidt asked Kissinger about nuclear proliferation, Kissinger quipped that he has been thinking and writing about that issue since before most of the audience was born. Will get started on Kissinger's latest book, World Order, on my way home from work today!

"Should I go outside? Or stay inside? Or go outside? Or inside? All this thinking is exhausting. I need a nap."

The travails of Sid, our foster cat. By the way, he is a great indoors/outdoors cat, mostly hanging out in our backyard when we let him out, on weekends.

I met Walter Isaacson, president of the Aspen Institute and author of the Steve Jobs biography, at an event at Foothill College. He's a smart guy and I was seriously impressed with the research he has put into each biography. No wonder they take years to write!

Thanks +Van Riper and +Peter Kellner for the invitation to the event!

The new Google Fiber Dial-up Mode will be a huge help as I try to slow down, reflect on life and reduce my stress level.

Cookie Monster is an excellent life coach. But we already suspected that, didn't we?

#gdgsf  March meetup is about to start, in Google's office in San Francisco: http://www.meetup.com/google-developer-group-san-francisco/events/220198091/
Apache Accumulo is a distributed storage system for structured data. Like HBase, Hypertable, and Cassandra, Accumulo's design was inspired by Google's 2006 BigTable paper.  In this talk we will discuss running Accumulo on GCloud Compute.  The talk will provide some pointers on how to set up automated scripts for deployment and share some benchmarking results. We will address the challenges of performance tuning Accumulo to achieve high-throughput...

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.
