A great read on combatting hate speech while preserving freedom of expression. 
From homophobia and racism to political and religious extremism, “hate speech” on the Internet is raising concern. YouTube and other Google products such as G+ have strong Community Guidelines and offer effective tools, featured in the below video, to flag inappropriate content.

Don't understand why our stuff online does not get the same protections as our stuff in our home. 
 
Doesn’t the stuff you keep online deserve the same protection as the stuff you keep offline? Under a law called ECPA, government agencies in the U.S. can see what you’ve written and stored online without a warrant. Sign this petition to the White House and tell the government to get a warrant!

This was a great project to work on.. glad we helped make the complex easy to understand. 
A new Google video covers how the company responds to government requests for user data, with the handy help of cute stop-motion toys.

Breaking news. I am a huge fan of Nest. Surprising how Nest helps you reduce your heating & a/c bills. 
 
I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire Nest Labs.  Nest’s founders, Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers, have built a tremendous team that we are excited to welcome into the Google family.  They’re already delivering amazing products you can buy right now--thermostats that save energy and smoke/CO alarms that can help keep your family safe.  It’s amazing to see how they have taken important but unloved devices and made them beautifully simple and useful.  We are excited to bring great experiences to more homes in more countries and fulfill their dreams!

Time to reform our surveillance laws. 
It is time for the world’s governments to address the practices and laws regulating government surveillance.

A solid hotel but they did not hit it out of the park. My first room was depressing - it was dark and had a view of a wall. They moved me to a new room which was nicer but starting to get tired. Carpets were a little stained in the halls and furniture was kind of scuffed. Food was great - had lunch and breakfast. Both meals were impressive. Service was good but not exceptional. Solid but definitely not exceeding expectations.

A great place for coffee. One of the best cappuccinos I have ever had (believe it or not it was made by the Mayor of Park City who works there now and then). People are really friendly. Environment is comfortable - great couches and the art is a treat in itself. Step off of Main street and check out the best coffee in Park City.

Wow. Amazing pizza and delicious salads. What makes this place remarkable is the very warm welcome you get. From the servers to the manager it is clear that this place is built with heart. It is not just a restaurant but a mission. It is clear that they care about serving the very best and in making their guests feel very welcome. Congratulations and thank you to the Vesta team - you are outstanding.

Kind of a comedy of errors. Our party was ignored throughout the meal. Or main courses arrived before our starters. The kids meals were forgotten. They served half our main courses and forgot the other half at the serving station (I had to collect the main main courses mytself). While the food was good, they clearly have some serious issues.

One of my favorite places for breakfast / brunch I have ever been to. Love that it is family style so you can try their amazing dishes including Potatos Bravas (probably my fave), burmese red pork stew (wow) and moroccan chicken hash. It is worth a long wait.

I went for dinner. Food is definitely good but not at the level of other top restaurants with 26+ scores on Zagat. Very good but not great or memorable. Service was decent. I was surprised that our waitress only recommended wines that were 50% higher than the price range we discussed. She seemed to only say which wines were good without providing insights. I would have expected some insights or an intro to the Sommelier.
