Story
Tagline
The rumors you've heard are probably true.
Introduction
I teach people about music, technology and pedagogy.

I create music, and see blurred lines between being a composer, a performer, and a digital-instrument-designer. I am an autodidact and a polymath, but eventually it all comes back to music.

"A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful." Jacqueline Bisset

Bragging rights
I can sing the alphabet backwards from Z to A. With a computer's help, I wrote a piece of music with one million notes in it. My cat has 27 toes. I make a wicked pâté.

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

In honor of #TeacherAppreciationWeek, we’re announcing a preview of Classroom, a new, free tool in #GAFE that’s coming later in 2014. Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease. http://goo.gl/5VvWDz

Improving accessibility in Hangouts

Accessibility is something we care a lot about on the Hangouts team. The Hangout Captions app, for example, enables live transcription services for the deaf and hard of hearing (http://goo.gl/4RujF). And "Take the Floor" makes it easier for sign language speakers to do a Hangout together (http://goo.gl/chyKS). Today we're rolling out two accessibility improvements in Hangouts - a Sign Language Interpreter app, and a fuller set of keyboard shortcuts. 

1) Using the Sign Language Interpreter app, deaf or hard of hearing users who prefer sign language can invite interpreters to speak and sign for them during a Hangout. They'll always see their interpreter at the top right of the window, and they'll become the focus of the Hangout whenever their interpreter speaks for them. You can install the app using this link: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_?gid=532733437531.

2) Keyboard shortcuts are also available in Hangouts -- great for people who can't or don't want to use a mouse during the video chat. For example: muting your microphone is now as simple as Ctrl+D (PC) or Command+D (Mac), and you can start chatting with Ctrl+B (PC) or Command+B (Mac). To view the full list of keyboard shortcuts just type '?' while in a Hangout, or visit this page: support.google.com/plus/bin/answer.py?answer=2752487.


Both features are rolling out gradually, so let us know what you think once you've taken them for a spin!

***PLEASE SHARE***

I have always believed in the power-for-good that music can do. To that end, I'm delighted to announce that an album of the music I created for the Bluebird dance production at DePauw is now available on iTunes and other digital distributors, and that 100% of my net proceeds raised from the sale of this album (from all vendors) through the end of May will be donated to the Humane Society of Putnam County.

iTunes Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/id866665910
Amazon MP3 Store: http://www.amazon.com/Bluebird-Veronica-Pejril/dp/B00JUWZB7G
Google Play Store: http://goo.gl/BqnF8s

Bluebird runs for two more nights in DePauw's Moore Theatre, 7:30pm April 25 and 26. Please come out to support the creative and performing arts!

Many thanks to Aaron I. Spielman for his beautiful artwork and design for the album cover.

#ifihadglass  We'd wear Glass on our tour across the USA (25 cities, NYC to California via SXSW in Austin - http://bit.ly/YAcGcj). Capture the whole tour (including the shows!) and share it with our fans on G+. Use the footage to make the first Glass-shot music video for our new song "The Singularity" (http://www.kurzweilai.net/?p=179255 -- inspired by the theories of Google's new Director of Engineering, Ray Kurzweil). And show the video at our Googleplex performance on March 25.

It'd work a hell of a lot better than our last attempt: http://bit.ly/YAd0bg

This looks like a great opportunity for net-empowered art collaboration.
