Love Google Inbox so far! I hit a couple bugs but I'm sure the rough edges will be worked out. Great for "zero inbox" dominance. Good work guys. Recommend trying: http://www.google.com/inbox/
Inbox by Gmail is a new app from the Gmail team. Inbox is an organized place to get things done and get back to what matters. Bundles keep emails organized. See the Highlights without opening emails. Plan or procrastinate with Snooze, and get things done with Reminders.

Acquiring Boston Dynamics is a huge deal.  Congrats Google.

Boston Dynamics and its animal kingdom-themed machines bring significant cachet to Google's robotic efforts.

Ai Weiwei: "It will be shocking for me if American citizens allow this to continue."
Both governments think they are doing what is best for the state and people. But, as I know, such abuse of power can ruin lives

Advantage: Seattle.  #4 city in the world to found a startup, and way behind in number of startups founded.  Forecast: Sunny.

Right. Serious quality of content issues there, and of course id love more female enrollment. How sad is it that our discipline had the best gender split when it was first starting?

Story
Introduction

"What struck me on the beach--and it struck me indeed, so that I staggered as at a blow--was that if the Eternal Principle had rested in that curved thorn I had carried about my neck across so many leagues, and if it now rested in the new thorn (perhaps the same thorn) I had only now put there, then it might rest in everything, in every thorn in every bush, in every drop of water in the sea. The thorn was a sacred Claw because all thorns were sacred Claws; the sand in my boots was sacred sand because it came from a beach of sacred sand. The cenobites treasured up the relics of the sannyasins because the sannyasins had approached the Pancreator. But everything had approached and even touched the Pancreator, because everything had dropped from his hand. Everything was a relic. All the world was a relic. I drew off my boots, that had traveled with me so far, and threw them into the waves that I might not walk shod on holy ground."

Working with Beth Toomey was fantastic. The Lake Union office (and adjacent Starbucks) were convenient meeting places. Beth has my full trust and respect, and I would recommend her to anyone.
