I watched some of the presentation and it was pretty impressive. I really liked the part where he sent money (via Venmo) to his friend and then purchased a hotel room. I'm definitely looking forward to Google Now adding capabilities like these. What I was surprised at was that Viv did not speak back to you.

Basic Information
Russ Ewell CEO, Digital Scribbler; Founder, HTG; Founder, E-Soccer.

HTG is a non-profit focused on using technology to overcome human limits. 

In 2001, HTG started the Hope Technology School, which is a nationally recognized full-inclusion school.  Hewlett-Packard recently featured the Hope Technology School in its Hacking Autism advertising campaign. 

As CEO of Digital Scribbler, my focus is on developing assistive technologies for iPhone and Android devices. My Digital Scribbler blog covers ideas, insights and the practical application of technology in the field of education. 

Recently, Digital Scribbler released its first app Quick Talk AAC.  Quick Talk AAC is an Augmentative Alternative Communication application, designed to help those with autism who are verbally challenged.  We have been gratified by the fact that it has moved beyond the autism community, and is now being used by a variety of individuals with verbal challenges. 

E-Soccer, is an all-volunteer inclusive soccer program founded in 2000. This program is dedicated to empowering both typical and special needs children of all abilities to reach their full athletic and social potential.  I was fortunate enough to receive the Jefferson Award and a Congressional Citation, in recognition of my service.

Google+ is one of my favorite places to engage and collaborate.  The variety of perspectives, opinions, and experiences here are a type of social education.  My primary interests are education and technology, and everything related to advancing the cause of those with intellectual disabilities. 

All opinions are my own.
