Backed the first day. :) Hope it pulls through and am MEGA excited to see footage today.

Glad to hear about MMDX in Europe, I know a few people who were annoyed about that.

Every little bit counts! If you want an awesome new first-person horror game for PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox One, PC or Macbook then please back this game!

This will be super handy!
 
The awesome Error Console¹ has been enabled by default in the last Chromium build.

It means you can go to chrome://extensions, make sure "Developer Mode" is checked and look at all the messages, warnings, errors logged by your installed extensions.

The coolest part for me is the ability to see at a glance where the error happens and to be able to dive directly into the Dev Tools.
This feature should also work with the Chrome Apps Developer Tool² available in the Web Store at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ohmmkhmmmpcnpikjeljgnaoabkaalbgc

Probably a good improvement for most users.
 
Because Chrome OS users find it confusing that the settings are managed through a browser tab, the chromium team has created a simple wrapper around the Settings page in a stand-alone Chrome window.

To give it a try and see if you prefer this way, enable the experimental chrome://flags/#enable-settings-window flag right now in Dev channel.

Chrome on all platforms would be better for users and best for web developers.

The chromium team is currently brainstorming what Manifest Version 3 for Chrome Apps and Extensions should be at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dgkxhdKvGQD2DeJ_3NLLBAb6OZ0F_u9F6J4qL2UGX7M/edit#

This document is quite interesting and I'd suggest that developers have a look at it so that they see what might be deprecated and prepare themselves in advance or even raise their voice.

For information, here's what were the manifest changes between version 1 and 2: http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/manifestVersion#manifest-v1-changes

Excellent service and atmosphere, with a variety of food (and beer!) on the menu. Definitely want to return to check out some of the other items.

The best burger I ever had was when I came here for Google I/O and it had the best-tasting, juiciest burger I've ever had. It almost tasted like a steak. It was absolute pure heaven in my mouth. I got it for lunch then came back and got it for dinner before I had to leave the next day. Excellent service as well. Probably the only thing that makes me sad I live on the opposite coast.

Good airport, with a more confusing layout than Logan, but good restaurants and facilities.

The room was good, checking in and out went without incident, however the real downer was that there was no heating so I spent most of the 60-degree nights curled up under the covers. No real soundproofing either, which was annoying at some points. That said, things were sufficiently clean, and I'm usually a stickler for that.

A great convention center to play host to Google I/O. I guess my favorite part compared to the Boston Convention Center where I've attended PAX East is also the worst part: it's smaller. This means that the session rooms are thankfully so much closer together, but it also means that some of the session rooms (11 and 12) had to be on a separate floor. I also kinda felt having the displays and kiosks spread throughout all three floors felt a little unstructured.

Workbridge first contacted me on June 13 after one of my former coworkers referred me to them. Met with them on June 26 and they had set me up for an interview on July 6 with a company I believe is a really good fit. By July 9 I had a brand new job with very minimal exertion or fretting on my part.
