While the first morning of the #tcsummit 2017 was kinda boring (you absolutely must have Google Home or you're lost), the afternoon sessions were much better. We had one about Machine Learning and how it influences our lives (Padraig Hough) and another about google.org (Stuart McLaughlin), who presented excellently - he never looked at the screen and only three times at the teleprompters.

Now that was very interesting! When we arrived at the Q&A part, someone asked why their activities don't cover environmental issues. "It's obvious", Stuart said, "because they're part of our core commitment." ;-) .

Ladies and gentlemen, please give a very warm welcome to the one and only +John Mueller - younger than ever, to express it in the words of miss Sophie's butler! The advocate for lighter and faster websites proved that the concept works in physical terms, too. And of course it was a blast - again - to meet him and to listen to his presentations at the #tcsummit 2017 - that was great except of the first morning. John, u rock!

The likely nicest giveaway at the #tcsummit 2017 - the #webmaster t-shirt with the happy #googlebot - and in fact we've been told a lot of things to consider to bring that smile to the bot's face ;-) .

La nostra guida inufficiale +Giacomo Gnecchi Ruscone aveva un badge speciale al Summit 2017 a Dublino: Webmaster Love! :-)

No fa bisogno di aggiungere altro - con eccezione di mille grazie a Giacomo per il suo impegno volontario e tutto il team dei Webmaster a Google per un evento sensazionale e tutto il bene che fanno (più divertimenti personali!).

Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2017: Sprint ended

Hello all! Today marks the end of the final DGR sprint. Whilst the overall goal of 5 million US$ has not been reached (we raised 4.7 - 2016: 3.6), I'm very satisfied with my personal result: 780,- € which is approximately 914,- US$.

This kept me at the Frankfurt ride pole position, brought me to #4 in Germany and ~ #773 worldwide - not bad for estimated 80,000 active fundraisers!

Thank you from the heart, my sponsors! The next ride for men's health will take place September 30th, 2018, and you can be sure I'll chime in again.

He's been a good companion for me over the years.

Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2017

Hello, folks and donators! Wearing a suit and tie is a challenge. There's always something wrong ... Tie knot, jacket, obstacles ... anyhow, tweed rulez!

Today I participated in Frankfurt/Germany's ride, and that was a blast! Great motorbikes, sharp dressed men and ladies, and the official photographer really fell in love with me and our rig ;-) . He made a real model shooting at the booth.

More than 250 riders participated in Frankfurt. I'm currently at #3 of the raisers with 283,- €, 2,600 of 91,000 raisers worldwise - not bad!

Most riders were real gentlefolks and only few had minor issues - and we did not encounter incidents.

The sprint is still going on for a week. We made 4,3 million of planned 5 so far - you still got the chance to donate: https://www.gentlemansride.com/fundraiser/ThomasHeyl174704 .

Cheers, and keep the good things coming! Picture from the old Opera house place in Frankfurt.

Sharp dressed men

Today I made a small "fashion test" with my daughter for the "Distinguished Gentleman's Ride" with customized vintage motorcycles (and matching suits!) next Sunday, September 24th. Hopefully we all (233 ladies and gents registered for the Frankfurt ride, 6.700 Euro raised so far) will appear in dapper state.

While suit, shirt and shoes were easy to handle, the discussions began with the ties ;-) . Women are hard to satisfy ...

Dont worry about the bad tie knot, I'll get this fixed, and the rest too!

You got few days left to support me and the fight against prostate cancer / suicide: https://www.gentlemansride.com/rider/ThomasHeyl174704 - so far I'm in position 12 in Frankfurt (and my folks from https://www.bentleymotors.com, James and Nic, donated too). The worldwide event raised 3.7 of 5 expected millions USD so far - not bad, as last year's result stopped at 3.6 millions.

Here's my fundraising page: https://www.gentlemansride.com/rider/ThomasHeyl174704 - the smallest contribution is highly welcome!

Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2017

The last Sunday in September (this year 24th) sees the worldwide DGR event. It is a charity and fundraising event and makes part of the Movember movement.

The funds will be used to fight prostata cancer and suicide. Other than the title says, bike-driving ladies are more than welcome!

Requirements: A customized vintage motorcycle like ours (which has evolved very much over the years) and matching clothes of the epoque, a suit, tie, etc.

The events are rather a show than a real ride. I'll participate in my hometown Frankfurt (and yes, I have matching dresses from the 1950ies and 1960ies ;-) ). Fake beards are nice to have but not a must :-) . Search for the event at Google Images to get an idea.

This year's goal are 5 million USD, and 3 of them have already been raised - great! If you'd like to donate, this is my fundraising page: https://www.gentlemansride.com/fundraiser/ThomasHeyl174704 .

Any support is highly appreciated, and please share! CU you at the events close to you.
