This is TEESPRING campaign. Which means that 20 shirts need to be ordered before the whole group is made. I'm actually pretty interested to see which is more popular... Coffee, Or Tea?
LET IT BEGIN!
“Because it is not possible to read all books on a given subject, much less the totality of all books, or to organize easily everything one has read, learning from books places a premium on conceptual thinking - the ability to recognize comparable data and events and project patterns into the future. And style propels the reader into a relationship with the author, or with the subject matter, by fusing substance and aesthetics.”
(Emphasis mine.) His context is concern that the availability of information on-demand (thanks to the Internet) threatens to undermine the acquisition of actual knowledge. The result, is that as individuals we expect to “look up” answers to problems rather than think them through using the broader context of history and experience.
I’ve encountered this interviewing job candidates — they’ve learned the “right” answer to some questions, but once we get beyond those memorized responses many are unable to use their knowledge and experience to answer things the don’t yet know.
That said, I don’t agree that, “The acquisition of knowledge from books provides an experience different from the Internet.” The Internet is just a different delivery mechanism.
When I consider my team at Google, I would hope that beyond sharing specific coding tips, we’re able to teach developers the knowledge required to solve new problems. As such, you’ll (hopefully) notice that our presenters are increasingly fusing substance and aesthetics to form stronger relationships with you (our audience).
I think the same truth can be applied to software — both substance and aesthetics are necessary, but neither alone is sufficient, to form a real relationship with your users.

The beginning of every year is a great time to sit, reflect, and make plans for improvement in the coming months. But don’t worry if you haven’t gotten around to it yet, because we’ve got you covered with Android Performance Patterns.
Throughout 2015 we’ll be rolling out videos, articles, docs, demos, talks, discussions, examples, and events dedicated to helping you fix your apps’ performance problems.
And what better way to kick it off than with the first wave of videos, starting with Rendering Performance 101.
Oh, and don’t forget to join the Android Performance Patterns Google+ Community (which you can join here : http://goo.gl/g7mxmI) for more great tips, tricks, and advice from other developers.
Throughout the year, keep your eyes on the G+ community, and as more content becomes available for your perusal.
See, making performant apps is way better than going to the gym!

You should take some time this last week of our annual year to reflect, process, and enjoy the leftover eggnog and ham in your fridge.
