Oh hey strangers, sorry for the crickets -- have been heads down with things over here at #nest -- just under a year ago I moved over to the Works with Nest team here at Nest and have been having a great time, shipping products, (, and working with a GREAT group of people. Time goes by fast when you're having fun.

Which is why I'd love it if you joined me! We're hiring!

Pretty impressive photo series showcasing #WomenInTech and the impact that women have made on society.

Code written by hand...

That ain't no small feat! Probably most today's coders couldn't do that...

More pictures of women who changed the world:

A chance to ask the #chromecast  team anything on +reddit?  Sounds like trouble. I mean, a wonderful idea! No, I was right the first time. It sounds like trouble. Can't wait to hear/see/read what you guys come up with! 

#ama   #ChromecastAMA   #reddit   
Come by Chromecast's AMA and ask us anything! We'll be answering from 2 to 5 pm PT today

Dear smart people of the Internet --

Can you help me identify this sound (or series of sounds?)

This video was recorded in the south in an area near a lake/swampy-area. There are alligators in residence.

Are they cicadas? Ducks? Ducks with kazoos?

It's driving me insane.

Just passed my 4 year #Googleversary  last month and was taking a stroll through memory lane. 

A lot has changed here at +Google in the four years I've been here-- I've met a ton of great people and have worked on some amazing products and have also witnessed some crazy feats in technology. 

But at the core of it all is a great group of people, and kindness-- something that can easily be forgotten when you spend your days staring at the screen and immersed in bits, bytes and blips.

We often have the ability to forget that every action is tied to an actual human-- at some point in time every line of code was someone's thought, every note on a dollar in a conference room was a person's honest intention. 

Today, this photo reminded me of how good (and silly) people can be.

Original copy from my dollar post, in 2012:

"Spotted in a +Google conference room:

A $1 bill with a post-it note that reads:

"Found $1 1/17/2012 Please help it find its home"

So many great things about this-- the dollar still sitting there, the dollar having a note, and the fact that I get to work with such an honest community of people.

One of the advantages of WFH when feeling a bit under the weather. Though it makes typing a little tough.

Such exciting news!
Today we’re unwrapping the best holiday gift we could’ve imagined: the first real build of our self-driving vehicle prototype.  

The vehicle we unveiled in May ( was an early mockup—it didn’t even have real headlights! Since then, we’ve been working on different prototypes-of-prototypes, each designed to test different systems of a self-driving car—for example, the typical “car” parts like steering and braking, as well as the “self-driving” parts like the computer and sensors. We’ve now put all those systems together in this fully functional vehicle—our first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving.

We’re going to be spending the holidays zipping around our test track, and we hope to see you on the streets of Northern California in the new year.  Our safety drivers will continue to oversee the vehicle for a while longer, using temporary manual controls as needed while we continue to test and learn.  Happy holidays!

Have a #Chromecast ? Nerdy about American Politics? ( #election2014 )

Then grab your Chromecast, get ready to #leanback  and join +NPR and +NPR Politics for an #NPRParty  

  Cast from your Chromecast as soon as the polls start to close (cough 7pm  EST cough ) for live reporting, in glossy, no-muss, no-fuss format. Just the way you like it.

Recently picked up a bite at the Tritonville Bar & Terrace as a result of staying at the Sandymount Hotel. Staff was always quite busy but was able to balance their tables with the right amount of attentiveness. As an American, I'm partial to my hamburgers/ "Beef Burgers" as we're spoiled in the States-- so perhaps ordering one in Dublin wasn't the best idea as I was slightly disappointed in the flavor. (Beef was good, composition was, well-- "meh"-- left me wanting something more-- even if it was just a basic burger). However, I have gone back again and ordered the Pasta Carbonara, which was good-- cream sauce was rich and tasty-- nice on a blustery night. If you're short on time, staying in the hotel and don't want to venture out, I'd recommend it. It's also a nice place to pop in and grab a pint, read an eBook on your Nexus7 or Kindle and relax for a bit while sports are on in the background, as the booths are comfortable.

Adorable from the outside (the gardens are a treat to look at!) for an American, the Sandymount's rooms leave you wanting just a little bit more. The rooms are sparse and simple (but are kept quite tidy), but unfortunately the walls also fall under that category-- sparse. With a room on "Garden level" you can hear the pitter patter of footsteps from above (and even the scuffle of "friends" outside your door on a weekend night). But don't dismay-- the front desk staff at Sandymount is terribly helpful-- they'll clear away any Dubliners that may disturb you and even offer a shuttle to take you into local services. They're kind, provide maps and anecdotes and are receptive to crazy Californian's staying in their hotel. Overall, it's quaint, and it has free WiFi (that's a plus!) that you top off each night and works (reliably) throughout the hotel.
