3 years ago we embarked on a project to put computing inside a contact lens -- an immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health.  While I am delighted at the progress that project has made, I could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into -- a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.  The efforts it has spawned include  a nanodiagnostics platform, a cardiac and activity monitor, and the Baseline Study.

It’s a huge undertaking, and I am delighted to announce that the life sciences team is now ready to graduate from our X lab and become a standalone Alphabet company, with Andy Conrad as CEO.  While the reporting structure will be different, their goal remains the same. They’ll continue to work with other life sciences companies to move new technologies from early stage R&D to clinical testing—and, hopefully—transform the way we detect, prevent, and manage disease.  
   
The team is relatively new but very diverse including software engineers, oncologists, and optics experts.  This is the type of company we hope will thrive as part of Alphabet and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

Google picked the address abc.xyz as the homepage for its new parent company Alphabet. Daniel Negari is one guy who's celebrating.

Forty years, six generations, five body types. The evolution of a legend. Happy 40th anniversary to the BMW 3 Series!

“And then all of the sudden, I felt like I started getting pulled under water. Then the [shark] came up, and I was on my board and it was like right there, and I saw the whole thing thrashing around. Mick Fanning is now one of surfing’s all-time greats.

“I was getting dragged under by my leg wrap, and then I felt like it kicked me off, but it was still there, and I was still attached to my board. I felt like it was dragging me under water, and then my leg wrap broke, and I started swimming and screaming.”
Within hours of world champion Mick Fanning escaping a shark attack, the internet did what it did best: produce memes about the terrifying incident.

Probably my favorite image taken 46 years ago today by Michael Collins, the only crew member who did not set foot on the Moon, enabling him to take a shot, a frame that included every person who ever lived till that day, except for one: him. How special, in its own way. But Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin did set foot on the Moon, breaking a frontier for humankind in ways only imagined until that day in 1969 ❤
