Waiting in Seattle for my flight to #io15 I'm reminded of that moment going to my first Google IO in 2011 in this exact spot when I ran into Peter Vesterbacka wearing the signature red angry birds hoodie. Little did I know he would take the stage at the keynote. I just thought... That's a sweet hoodie!

Dart users are "Dartisans". Whatever meeting they had to name the language ended the moment someone pointed that out.

How cool would it be to use NFC on the web?! Well, it's in progress with the Web NFC API!
How easy is this?
(Example from W3C)
navigator.nfc.requestAdapter().then((adapter) => {
  console.log("Waiting for game state");
  adapter.onmessage = (event) => {
    console.log("Game state received from: " + event.message.scope);
    console.log("Game state: " + event.message.data);
    // Now do some calculations and update the state.
    adapter.send({ scope: event.message.scope,
                   data: [ { level: 3, points: 4500, lives: 3 } ] })
      .then(() => { console.log("Send was successful")})
      .catch(() => { console.log("Send failed")});
  };
});
Abstract. Near Field Communication (NFC) enables wireless communication between two devices at close proximity, usually less than a few centimeters. NFC is an international standard (ISO/IEC 18092) defining an interface and protocol for simple wireless interconnection of closely coupled devices ...

The self driving car revolution is sooner than you think.
 
We started designing the world’s first fully self-driving vehicle to transform mobility, making it easier, safer and more enjoyable for everyone to get around. Now we're ready for the next step of our project: this summer, our prototype vehicles will leave the test track and hit the familiar roads of Mountain View, California, with our safety drivers aboard.

Oh hey, polymer 0.9 has been released. This may be a short lived release since 1.0 will be announced at Google IO (according to the schedule of talks)

That's cool.  The yellow cab company was pissed when the green taxi shop opened up.  They're going to have complete apoplexy about this.

I liked the article I saw where one of our legislators wanted to keep "this California technology out of Montana."  SIgh.

My neighbors and friends could use some help if you can find it in your heart to give a little.
Imagine if the living space for your family of 7 was cut in half, if part of your home was destroyed, and if your insurance policy didn’t cover the cost to repair your home. And imagine if the process for repairing your home took three months just to get to the point where you could work on repai...

I had to go back and watch the HTTP 203 series again because +Jake Archibald and +Paul Lewis are so very entertaining. Check em out and other videos on the +Google Developers youtube channel.

Absolutely the best pizza and strombolis. It's all about the dough. They like to experiment with toppings too.

Their food has gotten much better in the last year or two. It's always been a great place to get a drink, now with great food too. There's lot of different styles to choose from.

The food is always fantastic, and the servers are great. It's a great place for date night.
