I'm so proud of my daughter who wrote such kind words to help raise money for the American Heart Association.

"Hi, My name is Lydia and my brothers and I are trying to raise money for the Heart Association. This is extra important to our family because my brother had to have three heart surgeries at the hospital. He has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and his heart makes one beat instead of two like mine does. He was in the hospital and we got to go visit. I think it might have been a little scary for Henry and he did really good in the hospital and now he is healthy back at home. 

It would be good if you could help give money to the jump rope for hearts so they can help hospitals think of better ways to do the surgeries and keep kids like Henry healthy. I really love Henry because he is so funny, and he acts like a normal little boy,like nothing happened. He plays and acts just fine. Its a good thing that he teases and plays with me and his twin brother,Liam. 

THANK YOU!!!
Lydia- age 8"
We are thankful for all the medical advances, and are hopeful for continued progress and research! Please support our efforts to raise money at our school through Jump Rope for Hearts! Hi, My name is Lydia and my brothers and I are trying to raise money for the Heart Association.

IntersectionObserver Wow, I need this yesterday. Lazy load images as they come into view, pool and reuse DOM elements for infinite or virtualized scrolling of items, and best of all you don't have to measure the item and its container on scroll events.
+Alex Russell consider this one small public signal of support and excitement!

Anyone else excited for the Polymer Summit!?!? Live stream available starting in just under 4 hours. Yeah, for most of the US that means the middle of the night, so probably not staying up all night to watch it ..... probably.
Join us for an evening of code labs, followed by an all-day summit of Polymer tech talks and an after hours event.

After watching the State of the Union I feel like I just witnessed a piece of history. You hear about amazing speeches of presidents past, that inspired a nation. You see clips of Martin Luther King Jr. delivering his famous words. What I just witnessed was firm, yet kind. It was data driven and honest. It spoke to the fundamental decency of Americans and called on us to be a part of the solution. Excellent, excellent job Barakㅤ. Highly inspiring, and surely something that will resonate in our collective minds for years to come. 

I also felt like there was the influence of +Megan Smith CTO of USA and ex-Googler in there. I'm a BIG fan of the graphs and data backing up the points being made. If that was your doing, then bravo!

I would love to be in attendance this year. Sounds like it will be a bit different this year and that could be a good thing!
 
Exciting news: we’re only 18 weeks away from Google I/O! 2016 is going to be a special year for us -- we held our first developer day 10 years ago at the Googleplex. To celebrate our 10th anniversary of developer gatherings, we’ll be hosting I/O in our backyard at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA from May 18th - 20th. We’ll have 3 full days together to dive deep into developer content, code labs, and more. If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us via I/O Live and through an I/O Extended event in your local community. Stay tuned to #io16 and +GoogleDevelopers in the coming weeks for more details.

I still prefer the Dart syntax, but here's to hoping that this is what the Dart to ES6 compiler outputs.
How to build a simple, powerful, real mixin system for JavaScript and ES6 classes.

Data can be beautiful, so we decided to hang it on our walls.
 
Blooming dots on our walls? The acrylic panels represent connections between data linked in complex #Wdesk documents

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.
