I came to the US from India 22 years ago. I was fortunate enough to gain entry to a university here, and time after time…

The "5 million passwords" story is way overblown. Quick summary:

- The list was not taken from google, but other sites who use email address as logins (so if you used a unique password for gmail, you're fine).
- Less than 2% of the passwords would have worked. Affected accounts have been reset/notified and none of the passwords will currently work

Security tips for GMail / Google accounts in general
- Use a strong, unique password
- Keep recovery options (backup phone, email address) up to date at https://accounts.google.com/UpdateAccountRecoveryOptions
- Add 2FA

Other security options: http://g.co/accountcheckup

We had some extra fun at the Google+ offices in Mountain View yesterday -- a dumpster caught fire. The fire department showed up and the blaze was quickly out, but in the process we discovered that the entire team is, in fact, still five years old, and that people get really excited to watch a fire and a ladder truck and everything.

Sometimes it's good to still be five.

Announcing Sandstorm Personal Cloud Platform

http://sandstorm.io/

This is what I've been working towards ever since leaving Google:  Creating a platform that makes it really easy for end users to run their own personal web app servers, on which they can install apps through an "app-store-like" interface.  Every app runs in an isolated secure sandbox, so you can install apps from anyone without  worrying about malware taking down your whole server.  It's a native-code sandbox, so it's easy to port in existing Linux-based servers.  Apps will be able to talk to each other through Cap'n Proto RPC interfaces.

It's all open source.  Take a look, and start developing apps!
The Web is Broken. When you use a web app today, you usually connect to its developers' servers. This is backwards, and leaves them in control. Sandstorm makes it easy to run web apps on your own server. Bring their apps to your data, and make sure they don't do anything you don't like.

I'm very happy that we're well on our way towards being powered 100% by renewable power once these new wind and solar parks are built. I'm especially happy about two "firsts" we accomplished this year, signing the first renewable power deals with Duke Energy and TVA (historically coal heavy US utilities) as well as the first corporate solar deal ever in Chile.

Fabulous presentation. Short, humorous and to the point. And pertinent to solving a huge problem for humanity.

I think it's great because he states a problem and gives a solution calling it "the missing piece".
He doesn't have to sell the product the way Apple does in all it's keynotes, like calling every product the most innovative and best.
