It's rue de Lappe, but wonderful picture, captures the spirit.

Marais in the 'Hood... Rue de la Lappe, Paris, France

She could almost make out the sound of 1930's dance hall music  pouring out onto the street. Hear the midnight revelers laughing, purring, pouring out onto the street, anywhere from mildly tipsy to somewhat staggering, detect the scent of at least a dozen parfums de paris lingering in the air.  Almost. The veils between times had thinned, but was capricious. One moment there, the next, gone.

She blinked. Took a slow breath and realized she was back now, as abruptly as she had left.  So she continued her midnight stroll down the cobbled street , amidst the occasional, lazy flakes of snow and late night streetside smokers.

Hello Microsoft!
http://wordpress.chanezon.com/2013/05/13/hello-microsoft/
I joined Microsoft Developer & Platform Evangelism team, where I will focus on the Enterprise #Azure

Mary Jo Foley wrote a nice piece about our team http://www.zdnet.com/microsoft-builds-a-deep-tech-team-to-attract-next-gen-developers-7000015270/

"It was like uncorking a bottle"
 
The importance of play:

(H/T +Andrew Hurst).

Here's a section from Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman where he describes when he burnt out (emphasis mine):
"""
Then I had another thought: Physics disgusts me a little bit now, but I used to enjoy physics.  Why did I enjoy it? I used to play with it.  I used to do whatever I felt like doing - it didn't have to do with whether it was important for the development of nuclear physics, but whether it was interesting and amusing for me to play with.  When I was in high school, I'd see water running out of a faucet growing narrower, and wonder if I could figure what determines that curve.  I found it was rather easy to do. I didn't have to do it; it wasn't important for the future of science; somebody else had already done it.  This didn't make any difference: I'd invent things and play with things.

So I got this new attitude.  Now that I am burned out and I'll never accomplish anything, I've got this nice position at the university teaching classes which I rather enjoy, and just like I read the Arabian Nights for pleasure, I'm going to play with physics, whenever I want to, without worrying about importance whatsoever.

Within a week I was in the cafeteria and some guy, fooling around,
throws a plate in the air.  As the plate went up in the air I saw it wobble, and I noticed the red medallion of Cornell on the plate going around. It was pretty obvious to me that the medallion went around faster than the wobbling.

I had nothing to do, so I start to figure out the motion of the rotating plate.  I discovered that when the angle is very slight, the medallion rotates twice as fast as the wobble rate  -  two to one.  It came out of a complicated equation!  Then I thought, "Is there some way I can see in a more fundamental way, by looking at the forces or the dynamics, why it's two to one? I don't remember how I did it, but I ultimately worked out what the motion of the mass particles is, and how all the accelerations balance to make it two to one.

I still remember going to Hans Bethe and saying, "Hey, Hans!  I noticed something interesting.  Here the plate goes around so, and the reason it's two to one is ... " and I showed him the accelerations.

He says, "Feynman, that's pretty interesting, but what's the importance of it?  Why are you doing it?" "Hah!" I say.  "There's no importance whatsoever.  I'm just doing it for the fun of it."  His reaction didn't discourage me; I had made up my mind I was going to enjoy physics and do whatever I liked. I went on to work out equations of wobbles.  Then I thought about how electron orbits start to move in relativity.  Then there's the Dirac Equation in electrodynamics.  And then quantum electrodynamics. And before I knew it (it was a very short time)  I was "playing" - working, really - with the same old problem that I loved so much, that I had stopped working on when I went to Los Alamos: my thesis-type problems; all those old-fashioned, wonderful things.

It was effortless.  It was easy to play with these things.  It was like uncorking a bottle: Everything flowed out effortlessly.  I almost tried to resist it!  There was no importance to what I was doing, but ultimately there was.  The diagrams and the whole business that I got the Nobel Prize for came from that piddling around with the wobbling plate.

Josh covers a lot of ground there!
 
My webinar on building REST APIs with Spring is now online. This webinar introduces Spring MVC's core support for REST, Spring HATEOAS, Spring Data REST, Spring REST Shell, Spring Security and Spring Security OAuth and Spring Social. It's a whirlwind tour of Spring's comprehensive REST support. Enjoy!

Inspiring example for women in tech.
 
Today is my 7th anniversary at Google.

Things I learned in the last 7 years:

- A woman can have both career and family.
- Making time for yourself is not selfish.
- Work on things you are passionate about.
- The sky is not the limit.
- Hire people smarter and more capable than you.


Love my job, love Chrome and the web.
