I very much enjoyed Imagine Dragons' debut album, but their second album may be even better than their first!

+Rank Badjin I actually agree -- that 1st track is one of the two tracks that got pre-release airplay, and I think some of the others are stronger.

Introducing Android 6.0 Marshmallow!

Have you ever wondered where the Android statues come from? Or why Android versions are named after tasty treats? Nat and Lo are here to educate you.

And be sure to watch the bonus video linked from the end if you want to see +Hiroshi Lockheimer (Google's VP of Android) play chubby bunny. :-)

Wow, I go into a meeting where I'm delivering a 90 minute presentation to some new coworkers, and when I come out Google has announced this. Quite an afternoon!

And this announcement happened the day after my 11-year Googleversary....
 
Today's news brought to you by the letter G: http://abc.xyz
As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our ...

Today's Babylon 5 cast reunion panel at San Diego Comic-Con was probably the best panel I've ever been to. It featured all the surviving actors. They're a family and have been together for 20 years, and it shows.

There were many amazing behind the scenes stories that I'd never heard before. Lots of funny stuff! But also several poignant moments, especially about the cast members who have passed.

Now I want to re-watch the whole show!

This is a nice change! When I was on vacation in Peru I accidentally left my camera on California time, but my phone on Peruvian time. When I mix my photos together from the two sources they're out of order. Finally I can fix that (and share those photos)!

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.
