11 years ago my brother (now 34) was in an accident and broke his neck. He is now a vent-dependent quadriplegic (think Christopher Reeves).

Over Thanksgiving I had the chance to let him use my new #Daydream, Google's VR device. I showed him some 360° pictures and Cardboard Camera videos that I took during a recent trip to Italy. He was able to "experience" the Last Supper, Piazza del Dumo, Cinque Terre, and a few other places. He was pretty amazed.

Then I had him play PolyRunner VR. When I played it, I thought that it was a fun game and wasted a few minutes playing it. His response was much different:

"This is awesome!"
"This is the best Thanksgiving ever!"

and finally:

"I haven't been able to play a real video game in eleven years!"

Technology helps to make his life manageable. I'm really glad to work for company that makes products like Daydream that can make all of our lives better. Even if it is as simple as letting someone play a video game. I'm looking forward to see what else the Daydream team can do to further this kind of experience for those with disabilities.

From 2001 to 2003 I served an LDS mission in Italy and Switzerland. This summer I had the chance to go back and jump off some stuff I saw in Lavertezzo Switzerland that I didn't have the opportunity to do 13 years before.

Warning, shameless plug ahead.

My wife, +Rebecca Griffin, has started selling ‪#‎LuLaRoe‬ clothing. She's been crazy about these clothes for months. She'd never been into dresses or skirts, but she wears them all the time now. In order to keep her from breaking the bank, she's started a business selling the clothes. She carries dresses, shirts, and leggings for both women and girls.

She's having an online sale tomorrow on her Facebook VIP page (it's very exclusive, but I know a guy). Take a look if you are interested in women's clothing. Click the page below, then click "Shop Now" to join the group.

Sincerely,
"I Can't Believe I Know What A ‪#Julia Is"

Dave Barry's writing has gotten more reflective and less silly recently.  It better shows his talent as a writer.  But don't worry, there is still plenty of silliness for those that like that kind of thing.

This is a cool project to help get kids involved in programming. Will even work for parents who don't know how.

I can finally talk about this! Google Boulder is going to get some breathing room for more growth.
