Here is a video from the Fast Company article that captures an important part of the daily experience here at Google [x] -- trying things that don't work out.  It may sound counter-intuitive, but it's our willingness to try things that don't work that make it possible for us to innovate and find the stuff that ultimately has a chance to change the world in big positive ways.  
An inside look at the inner-workings of Google's top-secret research lab.

Yet more cute cat pictures.  I promise that these won't be the only thing I post, but the kittens are so dang cute.

Here are some more cute cat photos, though not of the mother and kittens we are fostering at home.  This kitty belongs to +Lynae Zebest and +Orin Zebest. Clearly, the internet and by extension Glass is for sharing cat imagery.   #throughglass

Yes, +Meg Muckenhoupt, of course.  That is what Glass was engineered for as a primary use case.  Didn't you know?  :)

Introduction
Hi.  I'm the Rich DeVaul who does R&D stuff for Google.  I've also worked for Apple, co-founded a tech startup called AWare and did wearables stuff as part of my Ph.D. work at MIT in the late '90s and early '00s.  If you are looking for someone of the same name that does psychiatry and medicine you are probably looking for my dad.
