I have a tremendous number of thoughts about the various revelations about the NSA's domestic espionage programs revealed this week. But first and foremost, I wanted to share this message from +Larry Page and our Chief Legal Officer +David Drummond. Google had no involvement in the PRISM program and the first we heard of it was when Greenwald's article hit the press.

I'm not sure what the details of this PRISM program are, but I can tell you that the only way in which Google reveals information about users are when we receive lawful, specific orders about individuals -- things like search warrants. And we continue to stand firm against any attempts to do so broadly or without genuine, individualized suspicion, and publicize the results as much as possible in our Transparency Report. Having seen much of the internals of how we do this, I can tell you that it is a point of pride, both for the company and for many of us, personally, that we stand up to governments that demand people's information. 

I can also tell you that the suggestion that PRISM involved anything happening directly inside our datacenters surprised me a great deal; owing to the nature of my work at Google over the past decade, it would have been challenging -- not impossible, but definitely a major surprise -- if something like this could have been done without my ever hearing of it. And I can categorically state that nothing resembling the mass surveillance of individuals by governments within our systems has ever crossed my plate.

If it had, even if I couldn't talk about it, in all likelihood I would no longer be working at Google: the fact that we do stand up for individual users' privacy and protection, for their right to have a personal life which is not ever shared with other people without their consent, even when governments come knocking at our door with guns, is one of the two most important reasons that I am at this company: the other being a chance to build systems which fundamentally change and improve the lives of billions of people by turning the abstract power of computing into something which amplifies and expands their individual, mental life.

Whatever the NSA was doing involving the mass harvesting of information, it did not involve being on the inside of Google. And I, personally, am by now disgusted with their conduct: the national security apparatus has convinced itself and the rest of the government that the only way it can do its job is to know everything about everyone. That's not how you protect a country. We didn't fight the Cold War just so we could rebuild the Stasi ourselves.

Captivating.  Check out the Vimeo video at the link.  Enjoy the animated gifs in the meantime. :)

Nuance by artist Marc-Antoine
http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/marc-antoine-locatelli-nuance/

"Nuance is a spectacular video by multidisciplinary artist Marc-Antoine Locatelli that features dancer Lucas Boirat combining his gift of movement with captivating beams of light. The interpretative performance presents a push and pull between the human silhouette and a shape-shifting abstract energy. The stark contrast in the dark shadows and the radiant flashes of light make for an especially eye-catching performance accompanied by the experimental music of edIT.

The video begins with Boirat casually stepping out of the shadows and onto his dimly lit stage. With the swift wave of his hand, he conjures up a ball of light that he seemingly manipulates in shape and motion across the screen. Eventually, the light seems to take on a life of its own and is as much a character with a driving force in the dance as Boirat."

This is funny!  But, as an iPhone user, Im glad to finally get some of the improvements that Android made (when they copied the iPhone).   
 
Nice "innovation" there, Apple.

Please spread the word: not only is Google keeping CalDAV (an open standard for calendar data) open, but we're opening CardDAV (an open standard for contact info) to everyone. I heard complaints from people when Google decided to make CalDAV a partner-only API, so I'm glad that not only will CalDAV stay open, but we're doing even more to open CardDAV. See the blog post for more info.

Introduction
I was born and raised in the Chicago-land area, moved to California for 10 years, and back to the mid-west in late 2009  I have a passion for education, problem solving, puzzles, programming, technology, gadgets, streamlining, fixing, helping, brainstorming, and teaching.  I am fortunate that my passions have culminated into ESGI (Educational Software for Guiding Instruction), the company at which I design and support cloud-based applications used by PreK  -2nd grade teachers.  http://www.esgisoftware.com/ESGI/#summary_video.aspx
