"...at Google, less than a fifth of the engineers are women. That’s a typical figure. Twenty percent of software developers are women, according to the Labor Department, and fewer than 6 percent of engineers are black or Hispanic. Comparatively, 56 percent of people in business and financial-operations jobs are women, as are 36 percent of physicians and surgeons and one-third of lawyers."
Crude apps, patronizing behavior. For some, “bro” culture offers one explanation for why there are so few women in tech.

Enjoy these  #GoogleSearch  tips, just in time for the holidays!

My favorite: on the Google Search App, tap the microphone and say [let's go caroling].  You'll see a list of carols and when you tap one, you'll see lyrics to sing along to karaoke-style.

In honor of  #AdaLovelaceDay
Proud to be an alum of a women's college that has always championed women in STEM and is currently in the top 10 among all colleges and universities in terms of the percentage of female graduates pursuing doctorates in the STEM fields.

Whenever I show Google Voice Search to friends and family, their minds are blown. Yes, Google Search is getting better at understanding what you want and giving you exactly what you need!

Like LaVar Burton said on Reading Rainbow, "But you don't have to take my word for it."

Google is undergoing a major long-term overhaul of its search engine, making it more personal and more conversational. Bloomberg West's Jon Erlichman went inside Google and talked with Search Czar Ben Gomes about how his team is making this all happen. (Source: Bloomberg)

As my Google+ bragging rights show, I'm a diehard This American Life fan. In the expert words of the late, great David Rakoff taken out of context, I have an "official and deep talent crush" on Ira Glass. Yesterday, I got to see him in this amazing show (http://oneradiohosttwodancers.com/) and today, I got to meet him at Google.  

Yes, maybe it sounds a little odd that my career idol is a radio host. But hey, it's the truth. I admire his work enormously and hope that in my lifetime, I positively impact people the way he does.

So many good things announced for Google Search today!

#googlesearch   #google15  
 
Today’s improvements to #GoogleSearch include a more streamlined experience on mobile and tablet; improvements to the Knowledge Graph so you can filter and do comparisons for complex questions; better answers for songs and staying on top of your day by setting reminders across your devices. We’ve also previewed the new Google Search App for iOS, with Google Now notifications and the ability to say “OK Google” to speak your question hands-free. Learn more about the changes on the Inside Search blog: http://g.co/4nct

Very cool feature!
 
Sometimes you need more than a quick answer. For those times you want to dig into a topic—for example, issues like [stem cell research] or [censorship], a popular product like [lego], or a concept like [happiness]—we're adding a new feature in Google Search to help you find relevant in-depth articles. Now sometimes when you're searching for a broad topic, you'll find a new block of results containing links to in-depth pieces on that subject. This feature is rolling out over the next few days, on google.com in English to start. Learn more on Inside Search: http://g.co/c59w

create a short URL with Goo.GL
I would recommend creating a Spreadsheet in Google Drive with two columns, one with a description of where the short URL will take you, and one with the short URLs in it. 
Goo.GL has a list of all of the short URLs you have created if you sign in to Gmail before creating the short URL, but the list just goes on and on forever if you have a lot, there really is no way to organize.

I post here about Google products, but my opinion is my own, not that of the company.

Frequent museum-goer and lecture attendee. Enjoys technology, but regularly unplugs. Fiercely INTJ. Keeps daily appreciation journal. Invests in collecting experiences, not objects.
