For anyone wondering if I have assimilated too far into American culture, I should point out that I did not use the word "gotten" at any point during my conversation with the journalist. For the further avoidance of doubt, I am not an embattled office worker.

PS http://www.speechlesslive.com/ is happening in San Francisco this evening. I am going along but not performing.

I try not to be a judgmental person but if you don't listen to I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue then your life is incomplete.

If you listen to the show and don't enjoy it then your life is incomplete.

It's not often I attempt to give general advice, but here goes: try not to break your jaw.

If you do, it doesn't necessarily hurt a lot but the recovery process is tedious and lengthy.

+Adam Wilson  Having once been a stand-up, I am not interesting in stooping to become a vent.

I'll be back here soon, I suspect. The world's most intravenous city.

Here on the Nexus team, we've been quite busy...

Thanks and congratulations to everyone who's worked so hard on these beautifully-designed new devices.
 
So excited to announce #AndroidLollipop and the latest #Nexus devices: Nexus 9, Nexus 6 and Nexus Player. Thanks to the team who’s been hard at work on our most ambitious Android release yet...

Feeling unreasonably victimized by the proposed increased airport security measures, since they will focus on two things I always carry in abundance: shoes and mobile devices :(

Today is my last day at Google. Almost every one of the 2,790 days of my time as a Googler were great fun, not least because we got to do things like this:

I'm off to work on a new project which I expect will be at least as much fun. It may even contain a ninja.

Thank you to everyone at Google for making it the best big place to be.

Marvellous.

I've watched this speech several times, and each time it makes me think more and more about the nature and profundity of cricket.

My Dad taught me to play; in doing that he gave me a significant, lasting and irreplaceable gift.

This evening I did a little bit of improv.

A hat tip to http://www.speechlesslive.com/ for letting me invade the stage, and to the audience for letting me stay there.

Always good to see someone demonstrate a clear understanding of what running a shop is actually about.
