Here's a small extra improvement for Android M that I really appreciate!
 
New in the M developer preview: windowLightStatusBar. Flipping this on in your theme tells the system to use a dark foreground, useful for lighter colored status bars. Note the M preview seems to have a bug where notification icons remain white, while system status icons correctly change to semitransparent black. #materialdesign

How great would it be to have an option for every app, including system apps to switch to an AMOLED friendly view

What are the deep, long-term effects of clandestine surveillance on a country? The current debates in Congress regarding the renewal — or modification — of the Patriot Act offer an occasion to hold an open discussion that is long overdue.

Android Design Support Library: bringing material design to life
The Design library brings a number of important material design components to all Android 2.1 or higher devices (http://goo.gl/KZBhH2). You’ll find a navigation drawer view, a floating label TextInputLayout, a floating action button, snackbar, tabs, and a motion and scroll framework to tie them together.

You’ll be able to build your navigation drawer’s items using a menu resource file and connect a TabLayout with a ViewPager with just a single call to setupWithViewPager().

AppBarLayout lets you set scroll flags to control how views such as your Toolbar scroll on and off the screen or extend it farther with CollapsingToolbarLayout to resize title text size, pin views as the app bar collapses, and add parallax effects - again just a few lines of XML.

With components that match the material design spec out of the box and the tools you need to provide rich behavior between views via the new CoordinatorLayout, the Design library gives you the building blocks needed to build a modern, great looking Android app without building everything from scratch.

A Google approach to Photos

At my daughter's preschool graduation not too long ago, my wife and I naturally wanted to capture the moment. So together we took a little over 550 photos and videos! And then promptly ran out of time to do anything with the photos we took. I think we can all sympathize with this; expecting all those photos and videos to make reliving the moments that matter easier, only to find out that the sheer volume has made it harder. 

And that’s why I’m thrilled to introduce the new Google Photos. A home for all your photos and videos, organized and brought to life, so that you can share and save what matters.

Check out my blog post about how we’ve made it easier to relive a lifetime’s worth of photos and videos through the new Google Photos. http://goo.gl/TbBuZX

"My country, right or wrong: if right, to be kept right; if wrong, to be set right."

HT +Yonatan Zunger 
 
"It is the innocence which constitutes the crime:" thus ends James Baldwin's powerful indictment of the American public. The charge he lays at our feet is of a collective refusal to be aware of what we are doing, and what we have done. And can we disagree with this? I've heard excuses before of "we didn't know what was happening," "it's just what had always been done," "we were only doing our duty;" I'm sure you have, too. Have you ever, once, known them to be true? 

In 1962, a Gallup poll showed that 85% of whites said that "black children had just as good a chance as white children to get a good education in their communities." In 1969, another Gallup poll showed 44% of whites saying that "blacks had a better chance than they did to get a good paying job." Look at those dates for a moment, and think about the world then. In retrospect, those statements look like complete madness. Were they any less nonsensical at the time? No: they were completely obvious back then, too. But there was a strong urge not to look.

This article is an excellent, and serious, discussion of the things we have been unwilling to look at.

Coming on the heels of Memorial Day, I find this particularly important. America has achieved many great things, but it has a deeply ingrained habit of ignoring the many terrible things it has also achieved. The country (like all countries) is very good at establishing an "official narrative" of what happened and why, a narrative we all learned in school, one which suggests that mistakes were made but everything is fine now.

The reason we can't ever let ourselves accept this is that when we ignore past actions, we blame the wrong people. When we ignore present actions, we cannot fix them.

Many people like to wave around the phrase "my country, right or wrong!" as a meaningless patriotic slogan. Remember the full quote: "My country, right or wrong: if right, to be kept right; if wrong, to be set right." It's not an admonishment to ignore any flaws; it's a reminder of our shared responsibility to our country, to understand what is right and wrong with it, so that we can preserve the former and repair the latter.

This article is an excellent introduction to some of the things which are and have been, undeniably, wrong. We don't need to make excuses for it; we just need to recognize it, understand it, and fix it.

Pundits and politicians are all too eager to condemn violent protest. How quickly they forget our nation's history

I believe that everyone has good inTent. We mean well even though we might not do well. I feel that we are all gods. We must strive to think with feeling. An understanding from a truer perspective could right the conFused minds of the public. Think "ProSpiracy"

"The opposite of science isn’t girl." - Sara Chipps

"Princess" is a choice, which is orthogonal and independent, of "scientist", "maker" or even "fighter".

Furthermore those roles are independent of "Girl" or "Boy"... I know I have a perpetual battle trying to channel more of my inner princess and less of my inner prima-donna!
I’ve spent the past year talking to a LOT of parents and their kids for Jewelbots.

Today at #io15 the #materialdesign team gave a couple talks about lessons learned from the first year of #materialdesign. For those of you who missed the session, you can still get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of #materialdesign. Learn more about the philosophy behind the system as well as first-hand accounts from a few of the designers on the team.

Announcing the Material Design Awards and Showcase

Today, we’re celebrating the amazing work Google Play developers have been doing with #materialdesign and announcing the Material Design Showcase and Material Design Awards.

With the new Material Design Showcase, we’re highlighting 18 great uses of material design with users through a collection on Google Play:

See the 18 showcase apps at g.co/materialshowcase

Of those 18 apps, we’re recognizing 6 with a special award, which we handed out at Google I/O earlier today. Our new sizzle reel below sums up the spectacular work from the individuals and teams behind these apps.

Get ready for even more material design

Google I/O 2015 kicks off tomorrow, and we’ve got an exciting lineup of design-focused content to experience both in-person and online. This year, we’re focusing on the ways we’re making it easier than ever to design and develop in material—with added assets and resources, backwards compatibility, and continuous updates to our design guidelines. We’re also celebrating some of the inspiring ways designers and developers have started to bring material design to life in their own products. Tune in at 4PM PDT on Thursday, May 28, to hear Matias Duarte’s “Material Now” session (goo.gl/gVZiIi), to get a complete overview, and keep a look out for more updates.

Check out my "Material Now" session on May 28 at Google I/O!

I/O 2015 - Google’s annual developer conference -  is later this week, on May 28–29, in San Francisco. On Thursday the 28th at 4PM PDT, I’ll be hosting the Material Now session (https://goo.gl/3Dq9ox), where we’ll be looking at the state of material design in all its forms.

We’ll start off by looking at some of the phenomenal design work happening across the many apps you can find in the Google Play store today. We might have something special planned for the amazing designers and developers behind these apps, so make sure to tune in...

We’ll also look towards the future, and talk about the tools and other resources we’re building to make adopting material design even easier.

If you’ll be at Moscone, join us in-person on Level 2. Otherwise, tune into the livestream at https://goo.gl/udvBhP. If you can’t follow in real-time, the recording will be available shortly after at https://goo.gl/60LSuK.

#io15   #materialdesign  
A look at where we’ve been and where we’re going with material design. This talk will examine the logistics of materializing products inside and outside of Google over the past year, from working collaboratively with product teams, to expanding and refining our guidelines for designers and developers. It will ask: how can we push material design into new and exciting territory? (Note: Tune into this live stream on CHANNEL 1.)

This is not a sit down place it's just a counter, but its some of the best fried oysters around. Order them and eat them quick while they're still sizzling! Fries and shrimp are also yummy but I just go for two plates of the oysters just for me!
