The web must keep developing! My response to ppk suggesting the web should stop adding new features for a year:
If we stand still, we go backwards. Posted 03 August 2015. Recently, ppk claimed the web is going too fast in the wrong direction, and it should stop, for a year. I got a bit snarky about it on Twitter, which isn't really fair, so here's a more considered response.

If you have a Chromecast and your WiFi is as bad as mine, you'll want one of these! FYI, they sold out in an hour last time!

It's mind-boggling how well these cars can drive.
 
Chris Urmson, Director of the Self-Driving Car Project, explains the difference between driver assistance systems and fully self-driving cars in his recent +TED Talk "How a driverless car sees the world." 
Statistically, the least reliable part of the car is ... the driver. Chris Urmson heads up Google's driverless car program, one of several efforts to remove humans from the driver's seat. He talks about where his program is right now, and shares fascinating footage that shows how the car sees the road and makes autonomous decisions about what to do next.

tl;dr - Given the challenges around VR graphics performance, the Rift will have a recommended specification to ensure that developers can optimize for a known hardware configuration, which ensures a better player experience of comfortable sustained presence. The recommended PC specification is an NVIDIA GTX 970 or AMD 290, Intel i5-4590, and 8GB RAM. This configuration will be held for the lifetime of the Rift and should drop in price over time. ...

Josh James is having a coming-out party five years in the making. After years of tinkering in semi-secrecy in Salt Lake City, James’ company Domo has finally exited stealth, showing off its business management platform to 1,000 attendees at its first user conference and announcing another major funding round that values the [...]

Worked first try. No setup. Plus I discovered some sweet dev work in the Netflix app. If I unplug the ethernet cable, the video switches to the new signal seamlessly. Not a single dropped frame! And vice versa. Great work!

The future of web development.
Google Developers originally shared to I/O:
 
Open source of the Google I/O 2015 web app

This year, our team of developers from the Google Developers team set a goal to build the Google I/O web site (https://goo.gl/1B7fw0) as an example of modern web development. It's offline-enabled, mobile first, and uses the latest platform features like Polymer, material design, web components, service worker, push notifications, google sign-in 2.0, add to homescreen, and web animations APIs. It also works with the companion I/O Android app, allowing users to save events and see their synced Schedule across the two apps. Every detail, including UX, was new and untackled territory from a Dev perspective, leading us to create a first-of-it’s-kind mobile web app - and we couldn’t be prouder of the final result.

To showcase and inspire on how to build mobile web apps using Google’s APIs, tools and services, we’re open sourcing the I/O web app for the first time. Check out the code, file bugs, or contribute here: github.com/GoogleChrome/ioweb2015.

To learn more about how the app was built, directly from the tech lead +Eric Bidelman, watch the I/O “Polymer and modern web APIs: In production at Google scale” session video (https://goo.gl/pmkovM).
The latest version of Polymer is fast and lean. Learn how teams at Google have successfully launched sites using Polymer and the latest platform APIs: Web Animations, Service Workers for offline and push notifications, and material design. And if you're new to Polymer we'll show you how to get started building mobile-first apps. (Note: Tune into this live stream on CHANNEL 3.)

ECMAScript 6 destructured parameters look super sweet!

function setCookie(name, value, options) {

    options = options || {};

    var secure = options.secure,
        path = options.path,
        domain = options.domain,
        expires = options.expires;

    // ...
}

setCookie("type", "js", {
    secure: true,
    expires: 60000
});

becomes

function setCookie(name, value, { secure, path, domain, expires }) {

    // ...
}

setCookie("type", "js", {
    secure: true,
    expires: 60000
});
