Finally, a proof of what you always suspected was true since Kindergarten: 2 + 2 does equal 4.

The tongue-in-cheek Yale paper can be found here: <http://www.cs.yale.edu/homes/as2446/224.pdf>.

If you like math enough to realize that it could be a serious question, there's a good discussion at #StackExchange : <http://math.stackexchange.com/q/896867/30375>.

The fight to preserve net neutrality is ridiculously important (you know that).

But like us, you've probably found yourself trying to explain it — and WHY it's so important — to a friend or relative at some point... when suddenly you see that "I'm-listening-because-I-love-you-but-I-have-no-idea-what-you're-talking-about"  look in their eyes.

#DemandProgress  has a solution: THE INTERNET MUST GO — a hilarious and informative mockumentary film that will tell you (and your sisters and aunts and uncles and friends and landlords etc.) what you need to know WITHOUT boring you (or them) to tears!

At 30 minutes, the video is relatively short and informative in a way that most people will easily understand. It's a tongue-in-cheek mockumentary, and it's done splendidly. Hard to believe it's nearly a year old now.

It's good that they started releasing dev previews before the general launch this year: apps really need to rethink their UI to avoid the split-world phenomenon we saw with iOS 7.

Samsung is just going to leap over this, thought, and keep using TouchWiz obviously; but do you really think manufacturers will just forget about their need to add 'USPs'?

Which brings me to fragmentation: I was surprised not to see Android Silver, and Android One really doesn't seem to be aimed at the higher-end market; but perhaps this UI will kill 2 birds with one stone.

Also, what are your thoughts on the UI timelines of Android and iOS: is Android a year behind with their material design being reminiscent of iOS 6's skeumorphism; or have they leap-frogged over the #flatdesign 'fad'?

+Yatharth Agarwal​ just saw a lollipop preview of a galaxy s5 today, and it appears that Samsung has not jumped over MD as you expected. Some things do get better over time.

The first and second derivatives matter.  #Android may still beat the crap out of  #iOS8 , but  #GoogleIO needs to take as big a leap as the #WWDC did...
 
The road to Google I/O 2014.  ( It’s kind of a Cinderella story.. )

Two years ago in January of 2012 my girlfriend (aka. my co-adventurer) +Andrea Mesterhazy and I moved to wonderful Mountain View, CA all the way from Omaha, Nebraska.  Already being super Google fans, when Google I/O 2012 came rolling around we couldn't help but go up to San Francisco and see if we could catch a glimpse of anything the night before during pre-registration.  We didn't have tickets but that didn't stop me from jumping in the door and snapping a few photos.  We remember talking about how great it would be to work at Google and how cool it would be to get to go to Google I/O someday.  A girl and guy can dream can't they!?!

Fast-forward one year later from these pictures...  Along comes Google I/O 2013 registration... I thought, YES! we live here, I can easily drive up and go.  Registration opens up, I jump instantly on the website, enter all my details, I was given so many minutes to enter my credit card information and pay, I hit submit and waited... and waited some more... and waited a little bit more... time was running out, I checked and my credit card even had the charge pending! I didn't take any chances, I hurried up and tried again.. But.. registration was then closed.. The original transaction never completed.. CRUSHED.. But all was not lost, I was able to attend the Google I/O Extended event in San Francisco.  I met some great people who I still follow here on G+ and I get to enjoy reading their technology thoughts and adventures daily.  If you're not attending I/O - I highly recommend attending one of these I/O Extended events! Get more info here: https://www.google.com/events/io/io-extended

Now on with our story...

We now fast-forward two years later from these pictures...  This year I was very lucky to find one of those nice hidden codes and get the opportunity to purchase a ticket to Google I/O 2014.  Victory at last!  I'm very excited to finally be able to attend I/O this next week and meet up with all the great engineers, developers, and Google fans I've come to follow here on G+ over the years.

Now, at this point in the story you're probably wondering "How can he go without his co-adventurer, best friend, better-half, etc.?"  Well have no fear! See the other side of this story is that +Andrea Mesterhazy  has continued to work her tail off here in California, and is a Senior Community Manager responsible for ChromeOS at Google.  She will also be attending Google I/O this year, not as an attendee, but to help with the live #io14request events.  (Check out the details on that here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GoogleDevelopers/posts/ghCw3Je1ehj ) Needless to say I couldn't be more proud of her!

Two years ago when I'm standing outside in front of this Google Maps pin (Attached photo), like a kid staring and drooling over something through a toy store window, I would have never guessed this is where we would be just two years later.

So please! Don't stop dreaming, don't stop wishing, don't stop pushing for what you think you deserve.  Do whatever it takes to put yourself in places and situations where opportunities exist, even if they take you out of your comfort zone.  Before we moved to California I mentioned to +Andrea Mesterhazy , we both have a serious passion for everything tech, we need to go where those opportunities are the greatest. If we were actors, and wanted to be movie stars, we would move to Hollywood.. So lets move to Silicon Valley!  Throughout this entire process we've had nothing but love and support from family and friends.  To them we say thank you!  So support your family, friends, and even strangers in their dreams.  Encourage them, let them know there’s no limit to what they can accomplish if they just keep trying and moving forward.

Thank you for reading!  If you're going to I/O - We will see you there!  If not, check out the Google I/O Extended events (https://www.google.com/events/io/io-extended).  If you can’t make it to these, don’t worry you can still watch it live and I'll take a lot of pictures for you!

Hey Google: sometimes your products might not be all you ever wanted them to be, but that doesn't mean that there aren't people invested in it; please don't kill it like with #GoogleReader
