NYC you have once again been a blast. Hanging out with cool coworkers including some new friends, working hard for a couple of days, even lucking into last minute reservations at Gramercy Tavern (so very, very delicious!) - - it's been a whirlwind but alas I must go home. I barely left the Meatpacking District and Chelsea but it was still so good! I should be back in September.

One last Freedom Tower selfie before I head out. ☺

Now back to California!

First night in Manhattan and there's a serious lightning storm crossing the city late at night. I'm kind of happy I'm on West Coast time so I can enjoy the natural fireworks. ☺

I loved my fourth of July, but it was sort of odd not to see or hear any fireworks this year...not even on a tv broadcast with music.  Glad you got to enjoy the natural version.

For our July 4th holiday we went for a hike in Calaveras Big Trees State Park through many spectacular giant sequoia trees. I'm used to hiking among their California coastal redwood cousins, which are taller and thinner, but this was a special treat for me. The girth and might of these giants is spectacular and the hike felt like a stroll through one of nature's cathedrals.

My first time in a car equipped with Android Automotive, and I got crammed into the back seat with two people sitting on my lap. :-)
How many Google CMs will fit in a car with Android Auto on the #io14  floor?

Verdict: 12...sort of.

+G. Hussain Chinoy, thanks for this awesome request!

+Garvin Seto saw the #io14 auto-awesome of myself I posted earlier today and countered with one of his own. I think his was even more (auto) awesome than mine. ☺

Last minute business trip to one of my favorite places in the world, New York City! The view from my hotel room does not suck.

I always love NYC because it feels like I'm walking around on the pages of a comic book or the set of a movie. This city is so vibrant and magical!

Finally, after a life-long love of Star Trek, I finally get to sit in the captain's chair.
Hey +Mike McLoughlin! We had a lot of fun answering this #io14request  for a picture of the Requests team reenacting  the Star Trek Enterprise under attack as if we were in the Bridge. How did we do? I think pretty (auto) awesome :P har har.

Was this the most fun #io14request  I had all weekend, or the mostest fun??
Well +Edwin Ferdian I've got some bad news about your #io14request  for an "Ellen" style selfie with +Sundar Pichai  & +Matias Duarte. We weren't able to get a moment with either of them to fulfil your wish.


+Claire Podgorski and I sincerely hope this qualifies as an adequate substitute. :-D

The first day of Google I/O 2014 ended with a very fun after party where we enjoyed really nice food and I got to chat with coworkers, talk with acquaintances in the community, and meet a few new folks. Also, nice tunes.

Oh, and I suppose there was some nice locally brewed beer but most of my audience should know that I prefer wine. The wine was just OK. ☺

More from I/O tomorrow!

Hello! I'm the 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.
