I wish I knew how I got here because it is the greatest.
Yesterday I started up leg four of the Furiously Happy book tour (click here for Minneapolis tonight) and I tweeted this: Screen Shot 2015-11-02 at 1.11.59 PM. Then twitter came to my rescue and throughout the night thousands of you shared your own cringey moments, which were so awesome that ...

Everything in Its Right Place

It’s been a little more than a quarter since I took on leadership of a newly formed team, which we’ve christened SPS: Streams, Photos, and Sharing.

In that short time, I’ve had some time to reflect on the products we’ve built over the last few years, and also the opportunity to oversee the launch of our new Google Photos product. I’ve concluded that it’s time for a “pivot”... or more precisely time to talk more openly about a pivot that’s been underway for some time (and in fact is reflected in the name of the new team). We're going to continue focusing Google+ on helping users connect around the interest they love, and retire it as the mechanism by which people share and engage within other Google products.

Four years ago when we conceived of the “Google+ Project”, we made it clear that our goals were always two-fold: Google+ aspired to be both a “platform layer that unified Google’s sharing models”, and a product / stream / app in its own right.

This was a well-intentioned goal, but as realized it led to some product experiences that users sometimes found confusing. For instance, and perhaps most controversially, integration with YouTube implied that leaving a comment on YouTube (something users had obviously been doing successfully for years) suddenly and unexpectedly required “joining Google+.”

We decided it’s time to fix this, not only in YouTube, but across a user’s entire experience at Google. We want to formally retire the notion that a Google+ membership is required for anything at Google… other than using Google+ itself.  

Some of the consequences of this shift in thinking have already been deployed. Others we’re rolling out as fast as possible (e.g. the changes to YouTube we referenced today). And many more will roll out over the rest of the year.

What does this mean for Google+ the product? Relieved of the notion of integrating with every other product at Google, Google+ can now focus on doing what it’s already doing quite well: helping millions of users around the world connect around the interest they love. Aspects of the product that don’t serve this agenda have been, or will be, retired. But you’ll also see a slew of improvements that make this use case shine (like the recent launch of Collections - https://plus.google.com/collections/featured).

It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how this strategy has played out as realized in the recent Google Photos launch, a product which in many ways embodies and telegraphs the changes discussed above. Google Photos not only doesn’t require a Google+ account, but as much of the functionality as possible doesn’t even require an account at all. It was important to me that when we launched Google Photos, we stressed the product implements sharing by any means a user prefers… without compromise or agenda. This is the right thing for users and the feedback and usage has been extremely validating.

I’m excited to share this strategy with the world, excited about what it means for Google+, and most of all for all of Google’s users.

This is a pretty good place to stay. The bar is quiet with fireplace seating, nice apps and drinks that aren't watered down. The rooms are comfortable as well as clean, and there are some over the pool that have balconies. For the price and location, it's a comfortable stay.

Really worth the extra money. There are some other airport hotels in the area that are fine if you are there for a night of business travel or aren't going to stay in the room much. But if you want to enjoy your room and stay, this is more like it. The room is basically a suite but without physical separation between living area and bedroom. There's a small table to eat, a refrigerator, free breakfast, wifi, a nice couch and one or two comfortable beds. There isn't room service, but you can order from the menu and pick it up when it's ready. Perfect excuse to meet people who might be having a glass of wine at the bar downstairs. I like to check in early here, but not so early that the room won't be ready as this is a busy hotel. Avoid the rush and you'll enjoy your experience.

I go here several times a year for a business stay. The place is always clean and there's a microwave in my room. The food is better than average--there's a bar around the back with pretty good ribs, music and cocktails. You can have them sent to your room or go down and mingle with people from the local area. I'm usually here for business or after procedures at the pain management center across the lot, so perhaps I'm not experiencing the hotel during Redskins game.

My usual experience at the Holiday Inn chain is that it's adequate for my business traveler needs. This location is a huge exception to that rule. I alerted the desk that I walk with a cane and that a close, easy to find room would be best. I was treated to a half an hour hike, with my bags, to find a room with an unwashed shower.

One of the best parts of living in Greenbelt is the hidden treasure in this park, Lake Artemesia. It's the man made expansion of an existing lake you can see when arriving or leaving Greenbelt metro. It's really a pair of twin lakes. There are ducks in the lake, you can jog there, stroll, or sit in one of the gazebos and read or gaze.

A few oddities - you must go to the lobby for ice and refreshments. I've stayed multiple times, once there was a huge crack in the bathroom mirror, but I called the front desk and there was no charge to my bill. It was always clean when I stayed, with fresh sheets. Also I was able to plug the peripherals I was bringing for my meeting into the television there. It also has HDMI so if you were on staycation, you could bring your Apple TV or Roku. An average hotel with a refreshingly hip decor, but not as nice as other Alofts.

My friends took me here for Sunday brunch the weekend after my birthday. You can order an item from a menu, then there's an omelet bar and an all you can eat buffet. When one thinks of buffets though, they don't normally have such a fine dining experience in mind. There was plenty of staff there, present but not hovering. Instead of feeling like an add-on restaurant it definitely had the same service feel as the hotel it was in.
