Congrats to the Sunroof team for launching! If you're in the Bay Area, Fresno, or Cambridge area, see if you should put solar panels on your roof :)

https://www.google.com/get/sunroof#p=0
Our recommendation is based on your bill, electricity rates in your area, and the sunlight your roof receives. Based on Google's database of aerial imagery and maps, Project Sunroof knows how much space on your roof can fit solar panels and where is best to install them.

Gave up I/O cold turkey this year. I've been part of planning/working on every once since 2008 (2007 if you count the first Google Developer Day). Feels good, but I'm also nostalgic for all the energy, though not the stress. 

Photos showed me a bunch of "what you were doing 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years ago." Lots of I/O activities and DevRel team activities, birthday activities, and bay to breakers. This is probably the chillest May I've had in 8 years.

Okay, I've been a little radio silent since I switched to the Energy team at Google, but it's been a pretty incredible experience being in a small organization at Google again. It's full of smart, passionate people working on various ways to attack the energy problem (which, of all the problems humanity needs to solve, is probably the biggest one. It's all Mad Max up in here in 15 years if we don't figure this out). 

And it being small now, means we have to grow it larger - so I just wanted to call out some of the open positions in the team. Let me know if you're interested in any of these, or know great people. 

My small sub-team is looking for a senior mechanical engineer: https://www.google.com/about/careers/search#!t=jo&jid=68145001&
 - you'd get to work with me! and be on a small project that's still prototyping and designing a lot

Other projects on the team are also looking for Product Managers, Software Engineers - both FE and BE, as well as a data analyst (MatLab/R is good to know). No external postings for these other than general SWE/PM pipelines, but let me know if you're interested and I can get you some more info. 

On the investments team (they've signed $1.5+ billion in renewable energy projects) is looking for Deal Leads:

+Stephanie Liu ,
How much do you think USB Type C connections will fit in with the delivery of energy to the devices in our home?

I'm envisioning Tesla Powerwall type batteries feeding DC current into the walls with USB Type C sockets throughout the house to power everything up to 100 watts.

This, I think, is where the smarthome and smarthome devices can combine power & data with the wiring in the home.

Finished my first full year of 1 second videos everyday. It was a really fun exercise to go over it all again and be reminded of how lucky I am. We traveled, I took a sabbatical, I changed jobs, watched some great friends tie the knot, bought a new home, and moved out of the "bungalow in the sky" that we've loved for the last 6 years. Thanks to all the friends, colleagues, and family that have made this year so great.

So awesome to see President +Barack Obama sitting with young women and men who are learning how to code and encouraging them. If the president is looking you in the face and telling you to keep at it and go into math and science, I can't imagine a better motivator :) 

And great job +Megan Smith for teaching the president what compilers are! :D

Man, I wanted Jupiter Ascending to be better than it was, even though there's some ridiculously amazing stuff in there. I just kept shouting, GET A SPACE LAWYER, JUPITER! Maybe the movie would have been better as a space legal procedural than a space romcom action flick. 

Ranty, spoilery post below.

I found the romance off-beat. The rest of the movie was awesome. :D

A picture my sister +Valerie Liu drew for me 3 years ago that I just found in my email. She called it an "Android fairy," but it looks heavily inspired by my haircut at the time :)
