I have nothing else to say but "Good Luck".
 
And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....
+Vic Gundotra

Freaking well done.
 
Members of the Cowboy and Indian Alliance avoided arrest Thursday when they took their anti-Keystone XL pipeline message into the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. http://cbc.sh/kGoy9XM

The carefully co-ordinated public relations stunt involved two members of the group wading into the shallow pool and holding a sign that read “Standing in the water could get me arrested, TransCanada pollutes drinking water and nothing happens.”

It's the third time I come to this branch of the chain, and it's the third time I come out of it less than content. While the atmosphere is at best decent, the food here sadly is less than par for the price. A 17$ rosé sauce Tortellini serving should have way more taste than what I ate. Overpriced, overblown, and relying only on its brand name.

This is a little mom'n'pop café/shop that provides and does it well! I was surprised to see a pumpkin cheesecake here, and I was NOT disappointed! The atmosphere is also pretty welcoming.

The food is decent and tasty and goes very well with the selection of microbrews they make and serve. A very appreciated little taste of the Petite Patrie.

Price is cheap for a venue on St-Laurent, and the quality is very decent, though it's not fine cuisine.

Sunday Tacos might be cheap and all, but a big group with guaranteed tips won't encourage the waiter to expedite the service. To illustrate, we, a table of 13, have waited an hour or so for our orders, while many surrounding tables arrived, ordered and got their food, all AFTER we ordered ours. Extremely dissatisfied, will not come again ever and will even tell people NOT to come here. The only reason I put 1 in Service is that I was better served at my previous visits.
