Since the early 1990s, NASA has been launching jellyfish into space. It's all part of research to see how the jellyfish adjust to microgravity.

That's super interesting. I never even considered the ramifications of being born without gravity.

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.
Dear Google users— You may be aware of press reports alleging that Internet companies have joined a secret U.S. government program called PRISM to give the National Security Agency direct access to our servers. As Google’s CE...

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

+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'm not big on Indian food, so take this review as you will. We got the Indian Oven dinner special for two to keep it simple. It ended up being more than enough food and all of it was very delicious. I wish I could remember the names of the dishes, but what I can say is it was heavy on vegetarian items, and they were all great. The meat dishes, tikka masala & lamb kebobs, had fantastic flavor and were cooked just right. To finish we had rice pudding, which was very creamy with a great flavor and texture overall.

Been going here for years now. Still the best burrito spot downtown, hands down. They recently raised their prices from dirt cheap to cheap and still maintain excellence. It's the San Francisco burrito you want when you're not in the Mission. Big, juicy, and packed with flavor. I love their super burrito, but I wouldn't pass the Mojado wet burrito up either. Both are killer deals and is basically enough food for two.

I'm going to give up the details early, we left absolutely stunned by the quality of food and the level of service. You can stop wasting time reading this now and just make your reservations or you can continue reading. Alex called the night before to confirm our reservations (they do this for weekend reservations) and he even called the day of the reservations to see if we wanted a later time slot. We walked in and were greeted with a smile by every server that walked by, letting us know they would be right with us, only to have Alex show up and show us to our seats promptly. We had Olives and Prosecco to start from the "While Your Waiting" menu which was really inexpensive and tasty way to start while your ordering. To start, we shared the polenta dish they had on special that night, which was absolutely delicious and delicate in flavor. We are not wine crazy, although we do love it when we have it, so we had a hard time deciding what would be best from their reasonably priced menu. Alex gave us a taste of two wonderful choices that helped us make the ultimate decision on a bottle of something we both loved. For the main course we were both persuaded by the server and Alex to do a pasta dish, we eventually decided on the chicken and spinach tortellini with bolognese sauce and the spaghetti with grandpa george's sausage. Two fantastic classic options with such a dedication to detail in flavor, it is simply unmatched here in the city. After hand grating some parmesan onto our plates we dove right in. Everything from the sauce to the pasta was the perfect amount and cooked just right. We finished with a glass of moscato and a tasty panna cotta. Another perfect match. I highly recommend this place. I know I gave a lot of details, but I left out even more. This place is filled with attention to detail and that's what makes this place so insanely great to dine at. I am making this my new regular spot for many occasions to come. Thanks for a great first experience.

Local family owned deli with delicious sandwiches (Meatball & Mr. Italiano are delicious) and some basic key ingredients imported from Italy for cooking a good meal. My only complaint is that I wish they were open on the weekends and/or later on the weekdays. They only open while I'm at work and the only reason I had a chance to try it out is because I worked from home.
