What do you think about Google's new logo? It's clean, I like it... the new "G" especially.
The iconic company has a new, modern look.

I'm at CES this week and Thync is one of the coolest things I've seen so far!
Thync is the craziest thing at CES, and it's not even on the show floor.

This is what happens when you tell Whisper that  you want to commit suicide. It's ugly, but the intersection of tech x mental health is something i've been working on a lot this week.

Tech is making $$$ from depressed, at-risk users without even providing them a service, all while patting itself on the back. We can and should do better.

With OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.1, iMessages finally don't suck as bad. Do you prefer iMessages to SMS? I was exclusively a Google Voice user up until about a year ago, but now texting friends on Android with my iPhone & Mac isn't quite as annoying. 
With iOS 8.1, Apple improves messaging. Better late than never?

I finally updated my Flickr with a few new photos! Here is a shot from sunset at the Very Large Array in New Mexico from this spring. One of the most beautiful, striking places I've ever been.

A few more from NM & elsewhere: https://www.flickr.com/photos/henofthewoods/sets/72157649880033062/

Did Kim Kardashian actually break the internet?

I mean look at this headline. And hey, data!
The Internet is not broken; I repeat: The Internet remains intact.

Apple's CEO Tim Cook just made a public statement about being gay and it was perfect. This is huge for business, tech, and anyone with a life that might be touched by his positive example.

"...If hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy."

And so .................. what. In the eyes of the lord is a sin. May he fund favor from God so that his can be forgiven.

Wrote this timeline of Google's efforts to refine email, from Gmail and Wave to Buzz, Google Now, and now Inbox. 

Fun to go back and remember all of that stuff. RIP. 
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and it looks like the road to Inbox was, too.

What do you think about Google Inbox, Google's new answer to email? Is it just another Buzz/Wave? It sort of integrates with G+, but not as deeply as one might have thought. I wish Hangouts/chat was more tied into it, but I'm still playing around!
Inbox by Gmail is a new app from the Gmail team. Inbox is an organized place to get things done and get back to what matters. Bundles keep emails organized. See the Highlights without opening emails. Plan or procrastinate with Snooze, and get things done with Reminders.
