In his book "The New Digital Age", +Eric Schmidt warned that geopolitical conflicts are increasingly moving online. I don't think this is what he meant though :)

This was probably someone's idea of a joke, but at the #Hyatt in #Montréal (one of the two main hotels for #PyCon this year), you entered the hotel on the ground level and had to take an elevator up to reception. The odd thing was their choice of floor numbers. BTW, after checking-in, you went into another elevator to take you to your rooms, which (re)started on floor 1. Huh?!? #pycon2014

So I think that it is related to the entire complex (Complexe Desjardins) that the hotel is situated in, which has plenty of floors. I'd this elevator belongs to the complex hence why the numbering is completely different from the hotel elevators which are numbered "normally." BTW, I failed to mention I'm interested in elevator floor button panels: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+WesleyChun/posts/dXeobzeVNWv

When I go to the certificate manager in Chrome, why does it show a bunch of servers as being "untrusted"?

"[People]... are looking for more information about the success, growth and future of [Google] Apps. Here are 40 more stats you need to know about the +Google Apps Ecosystem." I like the way they state their case then provide a reference to back it up with, so it's not purely subjective. http://blog.bettercloud.com/google-apps-ecosystem-stats #googleapps
