When we launched Project Loon in 2013 we hoped to answer a single question - could balloons be used to connect people to the Internet? Proving that this was possible in our New Zealand launch then led the team to start asking a much larger question - how can we make this work for everyone, no matter where they are in the world? How do you manufacture enough balloons to be able to provide coverage anywhere in the world and then launch them and control them so that there is always a balloon overhead to provide connection to the user on the ground?

In this latest video Project Lead Mike Cassidy offers a glimpse behind the scenes into how the Project Loon team have been tackling the challenges involved in moving from small scale, one-off launches and tests, to the scale and automation required to make balloon-powered Internet for all a reality.

Want to organize a First Saturday for 02-MAY? Register your event today: http://goo.gl/pEI76Z+Andre P. Teixeira, a local #IngressFS organizer from Fortaleza, Brazil explains how he overcame two major challenges in his city.

“The first major challenge was publicity, as Agents in the area were still unfamiliar with the event. To solve the problem our groups began to publicize in chat, post the link in G+ and  tag former attendees while answering questions about First Saturday.
The other major challenge that we resolved quickly was due to the change of venue for the event caused by the former location being closed on account of the extended holiday in Brazil. So, we carried out a quick survey of the participants and collectively chose the location.
Even with all the setbacks the integration between the organizers of both factions was inspiring and everyone was satisfied with the IngressFS.”

Once a month, First Saturdays are a get together of the local Ingress family, new and old, to level up new recruits, make new friends, and strengthen Cross-Faction relations. Become a part of the #IngressFS community and hear from other organizers and attendees: http://goo.gl/1zbzyI

Today we launched Google Handwriting Input (http://goo.gl/qWWhDU), which lets users handwrite text on their Android mobile device as an additional input method for any Android app, supporting 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. It works with both printed and cursive writing input with or without a stylus. Beyond text input, it also provides a fun way to enter hundreds of emojis by drawing them (simply press and hold the ‘enter’ button to switch modes). It also works with or without an Internet connection. Learn more at http://goo.gl/j7lFbC

Managers matter, and amazing managers matter a lot. To understand what the best of the best do differently, we studied our top performers with the happiest teams and discovered eight common attributes. None of them are rocket science, but they can be a challenge to consistently put in practice.

Our solution? Turn them into a checklist for both managers and their teams. If you’d like an easy way to manage better, print this out and put it above your desk so that you’re reminded of how best to support your team every single day. #workrules #management #google

#IngressReport celebrates 100 episodes!
 
#IngressReport100. +Susanna Moyer investigates #Persepolis events; features the best, recent SITREPs.

In a journey that has spanned over two years and highlighted inspiring actions and vibrant communities of Agents from around the globe, +Susanna Moyer brings us the 100th Ingress Report. Today's Report features Illuminator from Malaysia, 30 Shades of Blue from Brazil, Northwind from Russia, Blackstorm from Canada, an XM Field to Antarctica, the global Op Wildfir3, as well as Agent-coordinated food and blood drives and #IngressFS events.

The #Persepolis Anomaly series begins May 30 in Slovakia and Washington, DC. View the full list of cities on our Events page at https://www.ingress.com/events

+Hank Johnson now plans to travel to #Persepolis to confront Jahan. Two visions of the future lie ahead: One with a promise of world filled with beauty and self-fulfillment, and another with the promise of a technological renaissance that could end human suffering. Much rests on the fate of the #Persepolis Anomaly Series.

Transit is a good time to reflect and recollect oneself. Somehow, being higher than the clouds affords a certain clarity.

Before I head to Persepolis, I need to find out just how far the 13MAGNUS event reached. I'm not willing to trust a leaked NIA or Hulong document when it comes to this. I need first hand evidence.

Who survived the Shōnin ritual. Who didn't.

My punch-list:

+Devra Bogdanovich. Her current status is known by all.
+Oliver Lynton-Wolfe. Confirmed missing. (Research materials compromised)
+Martin Schubert. Confirmed missing. (Research materials compromised)

+Stein Lightman. Rumored, and likely, missing. Not yet confirmed.
+Yuri Alaric Nagassa. Rumored and likely missing. Not yet confirmed.
Calvin. Rumored missing. Not yet confirmed.

+Misty Hannah. Have not been able to check yet. No info.
+enoch dalby. Same.

I'm still trying to figure out who else needs to be on this list.

I had a fantastic experience painting with Danielle. It was my first plein air painting and I hadn't painted in oils for ages. But Danielle is an excellent teacher and I was amazed at what I could achieve in just a day.
