Hubble View of NGC 3314
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has produced an incredibly detailed image of a pair of overlapping galaxies called NGC 3314. While the two galaxies look as if they are in the midst of a collision, this is in fact a trick of perspective: the two are in chance alignment from our vantage point.

I’m excited to announce Calico, a new company that will focus on health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases.  Art Levinson, Chairman and former CEO of Genentech and Chairman of Apple, will be Chief Executive Officer.

OK … so you’re probably thinking wow!  That’s a lot different from what Google does today.  And you’re right.  But as we explained in our first letter to shareholders, there’s tremendous potential for technology more generally to improve people’s lives.  So don’t be surprised if we invest in projects that seem strange or speculative compared with our existing Internet businesses.  And please remember that new investments like this are very small by comparison to our core business.

Art and I are excited about tackling aging and illness.  These issues affect us all—from the decreased mobility and mental agility that comes with age, to life-threatening diseases that exact a terrible physical and emotional toll on individuals and families.  And while this is clearly a longer-term bet, we believe we can make good progress within reasonable timescales with the right goals and the right people.

Our press release has a few more details though it’s still very early days so there’s not much more to share yet.  Of course when Art has something more substantial to communicate (and that will likely take time), he’ll provide an update.  Finally, thanks to Bill Maris for helping bring this idea to life and getting Art involved, and to Sergey Brin for consistently supporting 10X thinking like this.  It’s hard for many companies to make long term investments.  So I’m tremendously excited about the innovative new way we’re funding this project.  Now for the hard work!

Collaborative business ecosystems.
In the new ebook, 'Shared Purpose:  A Thousand Business Ecosystems, a Worldwide Connected Community, and the Future' (http://sharedpurpose.com/), Professor James F. Moore details lessons learned from his comprehensive study of ARM’s collaborative, connected community, and provides blueprints for how other companies and industries could benefit from a similar ‘Collaborative Business Ecosystem’ approach.

Tune in live on Thursday, Aug 1st at 11am ET (4pm UK, 10am CT, 8am PT) to listen to Professor Moore, ARM CEO Simon Segars, and Freescale Senior VP of the MCU division, Geoff Lees, discuss how over the “past few years a loosely organized community of more than a thousand companies has overturned the tech industry.”

Just as we go live the link to the Google+ Hangout on Air will be posted to this event page, ARM's Google+ page (https://google.com/+arm/), ARMflix YouTube channel (http://youtube.com/ARMflix) and @ARMCommunity Twitter (http://twitter.com/ARMCommunity). Join the live conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #ARMSharedPurpose.

Too early to tell if G+ will become yet another social network (yasn) but I am liking it so far. It's like a new chance of connecting, unburdened by the catalog of all the people you ever associated with, which is what facebook has become, to me at least.

Google Plus, errbody.
