As a dancer, I'd be remiss if I didn't highlight today's awesome doodle honoring Frankie Manning, a pillar of the Lindy Hop community.

I recently traveled to Hyderabad, India for work where I was sharing my expertise with some India-based coworkers. Although I mostly was sitting in offices (which thank goodness were air conditioned -- it was the hottest April on record during my visit topping out at 110F/45C) I did get a good day of sightseeing around the city.

We had a really nice time at SVCC (Silicon Valley Comic Con). This year's was the first one ever, and there were some hiccups, but in the main it was well organized and well attended. We'll gladly do this again next year.

Here are my photos from the weekend including the celebs I saw like Nichelle Nichols, Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, and Stan Lee. And, of course, Steve Wozniak who was the whole reason this con happened in the first place.

I'm super-excited to help run this year's I/O Request program! Google I/O in just a few days!

Details on how to put in a request in the post below.

(No, we're not taking requests yet.) :-)
 
Here's the I/O 2016 request team!

Once again our Google Community Managers are looking forward to helping bring Google I/O to you! Here's the team introducing themselves in their own words:

+Crystal Coleman (Gmail): Super excited for my first year at I/O and looking forward to seeing your requests! When I'm not at work, I'm hanging with my dog, watching tv, reading comics, or listening to Hamilton for the billionth time.

+Alena F. (Google Calendar): Urban explorer, avid indoor cyclist, long distance runner. This is my first year at I/O, and I can't wait to start answering your I/O requests!

+Jacky Hayward (Google Cast): I'm the Google Cast Community Manager and this is my fifth year working on Google I/O requests! Wow, how the time flies. When not managing the Cast community help, you'll find me in my garden raising edible plants, hiking with my pup Alta and husband, or skiing down a mountain.

+Kameron Kitajima-Kimbrel (Google Chrome): This will be my second year at I/O for Google Chrome! I'm a Bay Area native, born and raised and enjoy video games, baking, dogs, coffee, and dark beers.

+Grace Chang (Google Maps): Lover of ramen, boba, and avocados. When not working, I enjoy being outdoors, reading, going to concerts, watching funny YouTube videos, and helping others.

+Ben Crane (Google Photos): First year at Google I/O and excited to be representing Google Photos! When I'm not at Google, I read about technology, startups, and Philosophy. I also like avocado :)

+Amanda Brodman (Google Play): Representing Google Play for the second time at I/O! New Yorker, spending the last 2 years in the Bay Area. Outside of Google, my interest include comedy, hiking, and traveling! Very excited to see what requests we get in this year!

+Brian Rose (Google VR): Brian works on developer outreach and community on the Google VR team, and is looking forward to hanging out in Aech's basement or the Metaverse very soon.

+Tanya Sarna Naik (Google+ & Blogger): Super duper excited for my first year at I/O and participating in the I/O Request Program! Former Computer Engineer turned Google Community Manager. Out of Google, my interests include hiking with my dog, traveling, cooking and watching movies!

+Chris Wong (Google Hangouts & Voice): 2nd year at I/O and couldn't be more excited! I'm originally from LA (go Bruins!) but have called SF my home for the last 5 years. Coffee, boba, baked goods, and music festivals are a few of my favorite things.

+Arille Jeriza Virrey (Google Search & Drive): Former muscle stem cell researcher turned Google Search & Drive CM (2nd year @ I/O). Interests include all things Hawaii-related, food recipe videos, and brunch. Excited to be at your service!

+Orrin Hancock (Nexus & Android ): Really excited for my second year participating in the I/O Request program! From LA originally and love living in the bay area. Some of my hobbies include travel, photography, table tennis, surfing, and playing the drums.

+Paul Wilcox (Nexus & Android): For me, if it doesn't involve Google it probably involves comic books, scifi/fantasy, video & tabletop games, or travel. I'm excited to help with the I/O Request program for my 4th year!

Our team is looking forward to helping with as many requests as we can during I/O 2016. And if you happen to be at the show, if you see one of us say hi!

[To put in a request during I/O (May 18-20): create a public Google+ or Twitter post from your profile using the hashtag #io16request. We’ll only be able to reply to requests written in English. To see what others are requesting, follow our Google+ Collection (https://goo.gl/2mcRJg) or search for #io16request on either Google+ or Twitter.]

I finally got my collection of Android figurines together in a display case. They look much nicer now, and they don't clutter my desk up so much!

I was finally home during the day so I could take my annual artsy photo of the California poppies in our backyard.

Taken with my Nexus 5X using the Camera app's lens blur feature, then edited in the Photos app to add a vignette.

We're attending the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con this weekend. It's more technology focused than the average pop culture event but still looks like a lot of fun. It may be a lot smaller than San Diego Comic-Con but it's nice to have something right in our backyard.

First up, the opening ceremony featuring the con's founder, Steve Wozniak!

I've already bumped into one former coworker and am looking forward to seeing many other people I know today. 😀

Introduction
Hello! I'm an Android Community Manager for Google.

Here on Google+ you can expect me to post publicly about:
  • Google, Android, and Nexus
  • Occasional other tech news
  • Geeky stuff like comic books, video games, tabletop RPGs, and scifi & fantasy books/movies/TV
  • Infrequent posts about my travels, social dancing, and wine
Folks in my Friends/Acquaintences/Family/Co-workers circles will also get more personal posts from me.

Looking for other Community Managers of Google's consumer products? Here's the team:
About me:
I'm a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. I love rain, clouds, fog, and wind. I feel most at home in California coastal woods or tall snow-covered mountains. Squirrels are amazingly fun to watch and play with, but cats are the best animals to bond with. In college I wore black high-top shoes, part of that elite cadre of black high-top folks -- you know who you are. Technology is a drug I cannot help but be addicted to. And winter is my favorite season of the year, which is why I use Wintergrey as my handle around the web.

I'm a geek, but hopefully one with obsessions beyond traditional geek bounds. My niche interests include gaming (computer/console as well as tabletop RPGs), dancing (
social ballroom and Irish ceili), comic books (American-style and some manga), movies (domestic or foreign, Hollywood or indie), animation ("traditional" and anime), skiing (snow, not water), martial arts, science fiction & fantasy, progressive rock, period events, yadda yadda.

The views expressed on
 Google+, in my blog, via Twitter, on Facebook, and elsewhere (except via official Google channels) are mine alone and not those of my employer.
Bragging rights
I can quote Star Trek 2, do the rise-and-grind, roll for initiative, and update Google+ from my Android phone. Possibly not all at the same time.

Neighborhood liquor store and deli with a surprisingly diverse liquor selection. Not as inexpensive or large as the nearby BevMo but family run and they often carry stuff the big stores don't have.

One of the few local quality restaurant/bars. The cocktail menu is interesting with many things I hadn't seen before, however it has a very tropical bend. The menu is primarily Italian with a hint of California cuisine, nice food but nothing to swoon over.

If you've been to one BevMo you've been to them all, and this one is no different. Fortunately, BevMo's seem to be universally good. Essentially this is a warehouse full of alcoholic beverages and paraphernalia. Although they rarely carry much truly exotic and hard to find stuff, they do have a massive assortment of wine, beer, and spirits to stock your bar with. Keep a look out for their famous 5-cent sales, where they sell a bottle of wine for 5 cents if you buy another bottle of the same stuff at full price -- you can explore a lot of wine this way. This particular BevMo is relatively new as of the time I'm writing this, but the staff seems to have their routine down. The store is clean and well organized. They tend to run out of boxes during the 5-cent sale so I recommend bringing your own boxes or totes.
