Really excited about "landing" the Spaces launch yesterday. The launch is now completely rolled out, so if you haven't yet... please take the product out for a spin and share your feedback...

And for those coming to Google IO, we've got some fun experiences designed for you...
Introducing Spaces
Today we're launching a new tool for group sharing that aims to tackle many of the pain points we've seen repeatedly:
* getting people together is hard
* jumping between apps to share things is slow
* conversations often go off-topic
* finding what was shared before is painful

We wanted to build a better group sharing experience that addresses these issues and more, so we made a new app called Spaces. More in the official Google blog post: https://googleblog.blogspot.com/2016/05/introducing-spaces-tool-for-small-group.html

Bill Campbell, our very close friend, died this morning.  A man with a huge heart, who hugged everyone he met with, was more than a mentor.  He helped us build Google and in countless ways made our success possible.  We started with him as an external coach but he quickly became the internal management expert.  He attended our staff meetings, met with management, and spent countless hours with our leadership.  He helped build our Board of Directors, and helped build our culture.  He worked very very closely with our Founders in every possible way.

His contribution to the success of Google and now Alphabet is incalculable.  His legacy is the smile that he created on everyones face, and the great leaders of the valley whom he coached.  Bill was a truly gifted man, and the world lost a great leader this morning.

Great story from +Louis Gray (and typical Sundar!)
Buzzfeed on +Sundar Pichai, the Google CEO you HAVE Heard Of

Almost five years ago, I ran into Sundar in the stairwells of Google, having just joined the company. I was holding a MacBook Air, which I'd been given as a Noogler. Knowing he ran ChromeOS, I told him I wished I could be carrying around a Chrome laptop instead. He was apologetic, saying he agreed, and was working on it.

By 2013, when the Pixel was announced, I traded IM's with Sundar just hours after the public launch. I congratulated him on the launch, and his response, to my surprise, was a humble one... "Do you have one yet?" Surprised, I said no, as it was the first day. He responded, "I'm so sorry. You were supposed to be on the list."

I paused, saying, no, it was fine. I'd get one soon. He reiterated, "You were supposed to be on the list. Contact +Caesar Sengupta and he will get you one." Less than an hour later, I had my hands on the Chromebook PIxel and I haven't used a Mac at work since.

Google is incredibly lucky to have Sundar as CEO. I bring up the story because while it's a small one, and I'm just one person, I know Sundar is friendly, approachable, humble and focused - all attributes necessary to earn and succeed the role he's found himself in today. Now, all of you know Sundar already, but this article will help you know him more, and see the person we already knew well.

Thanks +Mathew Honan for the piece.
