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 :)

Tigers vs. Swallows 

Evidence for the fact that the Japanese know how to do pro sports better than the US.

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

I love the Grounds for Sculpture in New Jersey, but this really blows it out of the water (pun intended) :). Statues create surfaces for coral and helps create artificial reefs, as well as being hauntingly beautiful. The nature as part of the art is exquisite.

"Despite the fact that the stratosphere becomes colder at higher elevations, the problem the suit designers faced was keeping him sufficiently cool at the top of the stratosphere, because there is no atmosphere to remove the heat. His suit did not have a cooling system, so it was necessary to make elaborate design modifications to keep dry air in his helmet so that his face plate did not fog." It's like the opposite of the Iron Man problem. Amazing stuff!
A helium-filled balloon lifted Mr. Eustace, a Google executive, to 135,908 feet. Fifteen minutes after he cut himself loose using a small explosive device, he was on the ground.

A new chapter

My amazing, beautiful, lovely former team planned a little surprise going-away party for me. I'll miss them all, and love them very much.

The last 7 years in DevRel has been an unparalleled experience. When I joined, there were 11 people, and now it's a large, global team, doing expansive, incredible work. This team has given me so much - lifelong friends and the opportunity to travel the world and meet an extraordinary community of developers. It also happens to be where I met my inimitable husband, +Arne Roomann-Kurrik. To everyone in DevRel, thank you for giving me so much.  

To the GDG community and the other developers I've had the chance to work with throughout the years, thank you. I've learned so much, and been constantly humbled by the brilliance and passion that you all display. It's reinforced my love of this industry -- that technology is a platform to bring people together, and shows how much we are all the same. Developers everywhere want to build, to share, to reach people, to solve problems, to change the world. This is the same whether it's in San Francisco, Beijing, Prague, Cairo, or Mexico City. 

I could go on and on, but I'll just say this: It's been a privilege. 

I'll still be within Google, though I'm moving to an early stage, confidential project with only two other engineers. It's completely different, and I look forward to growing something small to something large again, and tackling a completely different kind of problem. 

I'll still be around and checking in to watch you guys do amazing things :)

Steph, I am so excited for you! I can't wait to hear more and hope that your new project somehow sends you to DC so we can catch up sooner than later in person :)

Amazing time in Japan. Auto-awesome photos of Nanzen-ji temple in Kyoto, somewhere in Shinjuku in Tokyo, view from Google Tokyo (with bonus selfie), and badass ferry in Hakone.
