The governor of Texas just gave our Work From Home initiative his blessings!

If you haven't been following the revenge of my giant face journey, I've been a part of the +Social Good Summit Austin and we've been working hard to convince local organizations to start working from home in order to clean our air.

Last week I introduced Hangouts as a Business Tool at Google Austin to local executives, and today we have the governor officially blessing our efforts with his signature. 
What does it mean?

On Feb. 8th all the State employees will be working from home and joining them will be major companies in Austin. Our goal is to have 10,000 vehicles off the road that day to see a major impact.

We'll report our joint effect during SXSW - and ya'll are welcomed to join our celebration!

If you're in Austin and want to join us, you can do so on and we'll calculate your contribution to our clean air as well.
