thanks for sharing that!  it does make you wonder if they had technology back then how would the Declaration be written?  Would it have the same impact on Google, rather than written out by hand?

Many of you are reading this post while living in a city. And you can probably think of a ton of ways you’d like your city to be better—more affordable housing, better public transport, less pollution, more parks and green spaces, safer biking paths, a shorter commute... the list goes on!

Many cities around the world have already made a lot of progress in some of these areas—for instance, developing dashboards to measure and visualize traffic patterns, and building tools that let residents instantly evaluate and provide feedback on city services. But a lot of urban challenges are interrelated—for example, availability of transportation affects where people choose to live, which affects housing prices, which affects quality of life. So it helps to start from first principles and get a big-picture view of the many factors that affect city life. Then, you can develop the technologies and partnerships you need to make a difference.

So I’m very excited about +Sidewalk Labs​, a new company we’ve announced today. (The press release is at www.sidewalkinc.com if you want to read more).  Sidewalk will focus on improving city life for everyone by developing and incubating urban technologies to address issues like cost of living, efficient transportation and energy usage. The company will be led by Dan Doctoroff, former CEO of Bloomberg and Deputy Mayor of Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. Every time I talk with Dan I feel an amazing sense of opportunity because of all the ways technology can help transform cities to be more livable, flexible and vibrant.  I want to thank +Adrian who helped to bring Dan on board.

While this is a relatively modest investment and very different from Google's core business, it’s an area where I hope we can really improve people’s lives, similar to Google[x] and Calico. Making long-term, 10X bets like this is hard for most companies to do, but Sergey and I have always believed that it’s important. And as more and more people around the world live, work and settle in cities, the opportunities for improving our urban environments are endless. Now it’s time to hit the streets and get to work!
We're on the brink of a historic period for cities around the world. By 2050, the population in cities will double, intensifying existing socioeconomic, public health and environmental problems. At the same time, innovations in technology can be used to design communities that are more efficient ...

Garmon Estes originally shared to Technology:
 
We received some great news this month. My school's program "Chromebooks for Common Core Success" has won the 2015 Riverside County Office of Education Model of Academic Excellence and Innovation Award. We started with just 150 chromebooks last year and now have over 500 chromebooks. Chromebooks have proven to be tremendously valuable in our day to day instruction. In fact, the combination of Chromebooks and Google Classroom has fundamentally changed the way we teach our students.

Lets get our females involved in the STEM world.  Our girls, already at 12 and 13, do not see the sciences and mathematics as a place for them.  We need to make it a home for them, too!

We've used Brady Landscaping for the last few years and they are always friendly and do a great job. Ian and his team have not only handled lawn care but have done landscaping, snow removal, and more for us. In all areas, these guys do great work. We recommend them without reservation.
