“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” ~ Calvin Coolidge

Beautiful +MLB At-Bat design concept for wearables.
Moto 360 Face-Off for #MLB . Obviously, this would be ideally supported and connected to MLB At Bat. Goal here was to neatly display game information while staying stylish. 

On the face you will notice the following:
1) Teams and score in middle
2) Inning Info in the center (top or bottom indicated by red arrow)
3) AB and P info.
4) Bases: Yellow indicates where base runners are

To avoid clutter, I left out one other idea... LOCATION. In theory, between bases (watch edge) could say location. For instance:
FENWAY PARK (on top)
BOSTON MASS (on bottom)

Be great if MLB did something like this... wishful thinking.

+MLB +Boston Red Sox +New York Yankees

Tony McGuinnes from +Above & Beyond singing an unreleased and touching song that is probably called "Making Plans". Absolutely beautiful small moment here.

Possibly the best game ever created for Android. I'm not even trying to be over the top here. Really well done and amazing to play on a Nexus 7

+Jonathan Lau, you got to see this. I was just going through all the photos my phone backed up and it looks like it auto-created a GIF from the pictures I took of Adam trying to whack the pinata. This was the all hands for Cinco de Mayo

I have a tremendous number of thoughts about the various revelations about the NSA's domestic espionage programs revealed this week. But first and foremost, I wanted to share this message from +Larry Page and our Chief Legal Officer +David Drummond. Google had no involvement in the PRISM program and the first we heard of it was when Greenwald's article hit the press.

I'm not sure what the details of this PRISM program are, but I can tell you that the only way in which Google reveals information about users are when we receive lawful, specific orders about individuals -- things like search warrants. And we continue to stand firm against any attempts to do so broadly or without genuine, individualized suspicion, and publicize the results as much as possible in our Transparency Report. Having seen much of the internals of how we do this, I can tell you that it is a point of pride, both for the company and for many of us, personally, that we stand up to governments that demand people's information. 

I can also tell you that the suggestion that PRISM involved anything happening directly inside our datacenters surprised me a great deal; owing to the nature of my work at Google over the past decade, it would have been challenging -- not impossible, but definitely a major surprise -- if something like this could have been done without my ever hearing of it. And I can categorically state that nothing resembling the mass surveillance of individuals by governments within our systems has ever crossed my plate.

If it had, even if I couldn't talk about it, in all likelihood I would no longer be working at Google: the fact that we do stand up for individual users' privacy and protection, for their right to have a personal life which is not ever shared with other people without their consent, even when governments come knocking at our door with guns, is one of the two most important reasons that I am at this company: the other being a chance to build systems which fundamentally change and improve the lives of billions of people by turning the abstract power of computing into something which amplifies and expands their individual, mental life.

Whatever the NSA was doing involving the mass harvesting of information, it did not involve being on the inside of Google. And I, personally, am by now disgusted with their conduct: the national security apparatus has convinced itself and the rest of the government that the only way it can do its job is to know everything about everyone. That's not how you protect a country. We didn't fight the Cold War just so we could rebuild the Stasi ourselves.
