So last week, +Elisabeth Norris gave birth to our son Gabriel James Norris.  Everyone is doing well, and we're just so happy to finally have him here (the pregnancy was getting pretty uncomfortable for her toward the end).  More info on how things are going, as well as some really great photos from his newborn shoot at the link below.

My post last week was supposed to just be a teaser, immediately followed by a post containing more details about Gabriel’s birth. Then things got busy and now a week has slipped by. So, even thought it’s a little later than I intended, here’s an update. I guess the first...

If this whole code hosting thing doesn't work out, I think GitHub totally has a future in cartoons.  I could definitely see a video game as well, maybe a la Sonic the Hedgehog.

So, this is a thing we've been doing.  +Elisabeth Norris has single-handedly been doing a weekly dinner for 11 people, and I've been doing my best to steer the discussion.
 
Just started a new series over on the blog. It chronicles +Will Norris  & my venture into hosting a 10 week Dinner & Discussion series. 
As you guys know, I generally keep the subject matter on my blog to food and food alone. More specifically recipes. I consider food to be a safe subject to write about. While recipes are good and the photos aren’t half bad I know it is lacking. I rarely give you a relatable story element [...]

Last week, +Elisabeth Norris and I went up to the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. As we were walking toward the entrance, I heard some music coming from the tunnel that goes under the street. I couldn’t tell if it was recorded or live, so ventured over to investigate. These three guys were on the other side of the locked gates having a little jazz session that, thanks to the acoustics of the tunnel, projected really well and just sounded incredible. I almost could have just stayed and listened to them play, and just skipped the flowers.

As silly as it may seem, Google Domains is one of the more exciting products for me personally that Google has released in a while.  And not just because the service itself is great, but because my Google account is the most secure online account I have.  #indieweb  

https://willnorris.com/2014/06/google-domains
The very first step in getting started with the IndieWeb is to get a personal domain. It's the very foundation that the principles of the IndieWeb build upon – that you should own your data and control how it is accessed. Your domain is where you publish your content, provide contact information, and link to [...]

Some excellent points. I have had good times with Namecheap though.

By far, the most common question newcomers ask about the go-github library is why it uses pointers for most of its struct fields.  I finally got around to sitting down and writing about why.

https://willnorris.com/2014/05/go-rest-apis-and-pointers
One of the more interesting design challenges with go-github (and subsequently the one that results in the most questions) is the use of pointers for most all of the fields in our structs that are marshaled and passed to the GitHub API. After a fair amount of trial and error, I settled on the approach [...]

I use Google Play Music myself, but +Elisabeth Norris and I have toyed with getting a +Spotify subscription for her.  I guess that certainly won't be happening now.

Dear random guy from the Dominican Republic that keeps calling me this morning,

That's great that you found me here on Google+, and I'm sorry to hear that your mother is sick.  If our conversation had gone much further, I'm afraid we would have ended up talking about a bank account I could wire money to to help her get better.  Or maybe not, I don't know since you kept hanging up.

Given that you only speak a little english and I've only made it to Level 7 spanish on +Duolingo, you might find it easier to contact me here on Google+, since it can auto-translate posts and comments into your local language.

Typically, Google Security is focused on keeping the company and Google employees safe.  And on occasion, they also help keep the endangered baby egrets safe as well, coaxing them back towards their protected nesting area.

This office seems to consistently be far less busy than others on the peninsula. The two or three times I've been there, I've also found the people to be far friendlier than what I'm used to... maybe because it's not as busy and stressful? I don't know. Definitely the best DMV office in the area, in my opinion.
