It was really exciting to see one of my coworkers drive this throughout development.

I'm really glad to see it get out to everyone.

It's still amazes me that people have no clue what causes white space and why it has absolutely nothing to do with programming and everything to do with their own personal computer use and how they use/manipulate their own windows sizes and shapes.

Starry Oia

I had a chance to visit Greece this year in the off-season. Of course, I had to visit the picturesque Santorini. As I learned more about it, I found the island is called Thira and the typically photographed town is Oia (pronounced EE-ah). One morning, I went on the hike from Oia to Fira. When I did the reverse that evening, this is how Oia greeted me.

(It's been way too long since I shared a picture....)

The Washington Monument surrounded by some trees which would produce cherry blossoms about a week after this picture was taken (as viewed from the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial ).

Our daughter Natalie would NOT like this!  -Something about taking away 'girl' power.  Transvestite perhaps?

It was a dark and stormy night, and I was surrounded by the secret service watching my every move .... because hardly anyone else was foolish enough to be out in the pouring rain at ~11:30pm.

I was soaked by the time it was all done and my equipment had troubles multiple times, so it took much longer than the ideal, but in the end, I'm really pleased with the result. It may be the millionth picture or so of the White House, but it is mine and I like it.

A little video of my son and his friends snowboarding from last season at +Stevens Pass Winter Resort.

Various moments feel calm, inspire laughter, or may give a jolt of excitement all in two minutes :)

Merry Christmas to all.

+Sheen Hunter that's a favorite of mine too if you are talking about the double fall after the jump.

btw, the last jump with the board grab is done by my son.

I'm a bit proud that many of the scenes were taken by me while snowboarding -- of course, that is only on the green/easy run.

I intend to get back to photos soon but a brief interrupt for two kickstarters that people I know are doing.

I just found out that a friend of mine has created a boardgame and has a kickstarter for it:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/frogthewhatgames/slaughterball-brutally-deluxe-sci-fi-sports-board

Of course, I only just found out and there's only 81 minutes left to go  in his kickstarter campaign, but if you like stratgey board games with a dice mechanic, check it out soon!

Also, another friend of mine has a cool video game project on kickstarter (18 days left on this one):
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/molassesflood/the-flame-in-the-flood

fwiw, both have met the lower end of their goals but I thought some of you may be interested.

Disclaimer: I have no financial interest in this nor was I paid for this. These are just people I know whom I think are doing cool projects.
A board game of brutal sci-fi sports mayhem for 2-4 players with smooth rules, sizzling art, deluxe components, and large miniatures!

Now a brief break to share something of a different sort from my usual fare:

http://www.google.com/hangouts/

So pleased to get this out there where y'all can use it.

Personally, I work largely on the Chrome extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hangouts/nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd so I recommend that one for sure even if you install nothing else :) but there are awesome versions of Hangouts for Android and iPhone at the above site too.

I hope you enjoy it.
Hangouts bring conversations to life with photos, emoji, and even group video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, Android and Apple devices.

After having a meal at The Source (more on that later), I stopped by the Capital. It was just starting to rain at this point, making me think that a raincoat would have been a good idea for this trip.

I really like long night time exposures and a body of water for reflections is a nice bonus.

You could sell that one to the City, that should be shared for all to see. It makes me want to come to your City - the tourist commission would die for it.

Story
Introduction
On Google+, I post once in a while...

Usually pictures (that I've taken and processed).

Less often a personal/family milestone (often running related).

Other: I'm a programmer by day at Google. (Anything about this is super rare. Maybe once per year and if you follow Google blogs, I suspect you will have heard it already.)

Odd fact: I ran 4 marathons and need to start running again. I do it simply to be healthier and be more able to enjoy other things. I do like listening to audiobooks and music while running though.

My current running goal is to run a marathon in less than 4 hours. My best so far is about 4 hr 33 min.

Disclaimer: On Google+, I'm solely expressing my own opinions/thoughts, and in no way do I represent Google in what I say or do -- even if I happen to do something related to Google or the tech industry, etc.
