We had a great tour of the new Twitter office in London with our very own +Chris Chabot and his camera. Here is a sneak peek of our new nest!
New Nest Day

Today's pretty darn exciting for a Monday as Twitter UK moved into it's new nest in London! (when we say nest, we mean office obviously:)

The place is absolutely amazing, and would give SOHO house a run for it's design, and, well, take a look at the photos and I'm sure you'll agree this is one stunning office indeed.

We're all super thrilled to be here, the design and infrastructure team did an amazing job, especially considering they did a year's worth of work in 6 months. Oh and yes we do have a Dalek guarding the office.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to the party

Video of my keynote talk at the API Strategy Conference last week in Amsterdam, “Connecting to the Pulse of the Planet”, including a Raspberry Pi tweeting selfies and a flying AR.Drone powered by Tweets! #apistratAMS
Excellent video showing my colleague +Romain Huet discussing the Twitter Streaming and REST APIs, provide access to "the pulse of the planet" (and some Raspberry Pi and Nodecopter action, too!)

The ability to intercept and handle URLs by Chrome Apps has just been promoted to the stable channel in the last chromium build and should hopefully make it for M33.

For information, Chrome Apps can only register to handle URL patterns within domains that they own, that is, can prove ownership of as determined by the Chrome Web Store.

Documentation¹ is helpful to get you started and the best way to see this in action is to actually dive into the code of the Wikipedia URL Handler Sample².

Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.

Thanks to everyone who has supported Chrome over the past 5 years. It's been an A-MAZING ride.
