If you are tall, you know this is true!

More pros of being tall: you don't have to see the undersides of peoples' noses, and you can always reach the highest kitchen cabinet.

My first hack from #IndieWebCamp SF: a userscript that shows a web site's contact info with standard icons and formatting.

Congrats guys! And to +Mike Aizatsky, who laid much of the initial groundwork. Can't wait to try it out!
 
Little known fact:
We have a MapReduce library that runs natively on App Engine. We took Datastore, Task Queue, and Google Cloud Storage, then wired them all together to provide an auto-scaling, parallel data processing environment.

The Java version of this library has been quietly available as an open source download for quite some time, but in the latest App Engine release we've brought it out of the shadows. Tons of stability and performance improvements plus brand new docs.

I think it's pretty cool.  Please check it out.

I didn't get the memo on that I guess.

Wonderful dinner at Kinfolk last night. The crab falafel, duck, and desserts in particular were amazing. Thanks to +Greg Lutes for cooking for us, +Cynthia Johanson  for the recommendation, and +David Peterson and +Alexis Shoemate for joining us and being such great friends!

We process 6.3 trillion Cloud Datastore operations every month. That's 30 operations per person per day for every single person on earth.

Heard an amazing rumor from a trusted source yesterday: after 10+ years on PHP, +Automattic  is looking at porting +WordPress to Node.js. No joke. Whoa.

I have a crush on a corporate structure. Is that weird? I don't care...it's dreamy.

My understanding of "profit at all costs" is that it is a requirement of admission to most/all stock exchanges, not of being a company per se. In most jurisdictions, one can create a company for almost any purpose. In the UK, one is required to state the purpose up front. It's usually boilerplate, but doesn't have to be.
