Mind mapping can be a great way to organize your thoughts. Want to try it out? Here's our map to mind mapping:
Mind mapping is one of the best ways to capture your thoughts and bring them to life in visual form. Beyond just note-taking, though, mind maps can help you become more creative, remember more, and solve problems more effectively. Whether you're new to mind maps or just want a refresher, here's all you need to know about this technique.

I’m excited to announce Calico, a new company that will focus on health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases.  Art Levinson, Chairman and former CEO of Genentech and Chairman of Apple, will be Chief Executive Officer.

OK … so you’re probably thinking wow!  That’s a lot different from what Google does today.  And you’re right.  But as we explained in our first letter to shareholders, there’s tremendous potential for technology more generally to improve people’s lives.  So don’t be surprised if we invest in projects that seem strange or speculative compared with our existing Internet businesses.  And please remember that new investments like this are very small by comparison to our core business.

Art and I are excited about tackling aging and illness.  These issues affect us all—from the decreased mobility and mental agility that comes with age, to life-threatening diseases that exact a terrible physical and emotional toll on individuals and families.  And while this is clearly a longer-term bet, we believe we can make good progress within reasonable timescales with the right goals and the right people.

Our press release has a few more details though it’s still very early days so there’s not much more to share yet.  Of course when Art has something more substantial to communicate (and that will likely take time), he’ll provide an update.  Finally, thanks to Bill Maris for helping bring this idea to life and getting Art involved, and to Sergey Brin for consistently supporting 10X thinking like this.  It’s hard for many companies to make long term investments.  So I’m tremendously excited about the innovative new way we’re funding this project.  Now for the hard work!

Very cool.
 

I think we underestimate the impact of technology.

We know that it will get us our email faster or help us navigate smarter with GPS/Maps or apply special filters to our photos and send them and the world instantly. 

This video, in a very amazing way, made me appreciate how much we still underestimate the impact of technology.  Seeing how something as simple as a hangout via a mobile phone could bring the entire world to someone who was bed-ridden from multiple sclerosis was inspiring.

Technology has an incredible power to make all of our lives better.

I went in to the dealership knowing that I wanted a Jeep, but unsure of the options. I was told to ask for Ruben Perez, and I am glad I did. Ruben was extremely knowledgeable, straightforward and fun to chat with. Ruben told me about the differences in the Jeep models that I was interested in and the various available options. I should note here that I had been to other dealerships where I was told certain options weren't available that actually were available. Even the Jeep website (in the comparison chart) didn't show the available options that Ruben got for me. Overall, I'd say I got the perfect deal for what I was looking for and would recommend Huffines to a friend.
