Love is the Answer!

Many many years ago in a far away land (ahem, England) I led a peaceful protest on Black Friday which I affectionately call Buy Nothing Day. I stood in the city centre and read aloud ideas of what people could be doing with their time besides shopping.
I absolutely love the video below as it demonstrates one of my life mottos - "Experiences not things" as gifts to loved ones. During this holiday season I encourage everyone to share experiences of love and joy with people you care about instead of objects.

Megan Smith Named CTO of the United States!

Today +Megan Smith (formerly VP at Google[x]) joins President +Barack Obama as the Chief Technology Officer of the United States of America. Megan co-founded Women Techmakers in 2012 with +Stephanie Liu, and seeing the potential for building on the movement to empower women in technology, Megan and I created my current role as Google's Women in Technology Advocate. Megan has been an advisor to Women Techmakers despite her busy schedule advocating for women and children globally, and I'm honored to have worked side-by-side with her to enact change. I'm proud of my friend and mentor, and look forward to seeing the impact she'll make in her new role.

More from +Barack Obama and the White House blog

Proud of +Brynn Evans and her team for bringing greater visibility, community, and resources for women in design. #womentechmakers  
In the past few years, the field of user experience (UX) design has exploded. And yet, like tech in general, women are underrepresented in UX.

That’s why we’re excited about XX+UX, a monthly meetup for women in UX with the goal of fostering greater diversity in the field. 

The first #XXUX event (photos attached) was held at Google HQ in October 2013, where attendees created “story cards” that represented themselves or their journey into UX. Since then, there have been ten XX+UX meetups in the Bay Area, Austin, and Paris, with upcoming events in New York on 7/15 ( and London on 7/23 (, thanks to partnerships with LinkedIn, Salesforce, Pinterest, Etsy, Airbnb, Medium, Opower, and Ladies that UX.

We’re proud to support this burgeoning, international community of women in design, research, and technology who can connect, share stories, and mentor each other online and offline.

If you're interesting in getting involved, check out our calendar of upcoming events ( and join the XX+UX Google+ Community ( Also consider getting in touch with us at to host an XX+UX meetup in your own town!

Love when I see the spotlight on incredible engineers. #WomenTechmakers  
Meet Parisa, who leads the team that keeps your Chrome browser safe from hackers. Elle magazine asks what she looks for in people who want to join her team at Google:

“A lot of the people we hire just have this curiosity to try to understand something,” she says. “And maybe a bit of a mischievous slant, to try to do something unexpected."

Does that sound like anyone you know? We're looking for a few more good security and privacy software engineers princesses. Apply here:
