Daria Musk3,702,374*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time. I'll be sure to circle you and invite you when you're web-camera-ready! ✪ Come with song requests, stories and even a "dream to amplify". The theme of this hangout is #amplifyyourdreams  cause that's what you guys did for me. You turnt it up to 11! *SRSLY, MESSAGE ME* Send me a private message or chat or comment to me here if you'd like to arrange a special invite or if you're new and want to join the family and need some tips for getting in. I think I'm going to make invite circles for each half hour, so let me know when you want to join. Everyone's invited. It's really the greatest possible gift, just to let me sing for you and get to know you again and again and again.  *SPREAD THE LOVE* Share this invite too. Let's grow the family. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine and deserves some showcased virtual face-to-face time. *XO, Daria* PS. *CONNECTED BY* This concert celebration is being supported by our new friends at CO-OP Connected Credit Unions.

ThoughtWorks6,049Join us Wednesday, June 4th for our final hangout  w/@martinfowler, @kentbeck&@dhh. This final hangout will be a double episode (1hr) featuring a Q&A session as well as final thoughts. https://plus.google.com/u/1/b/102046517467703229044/events/cco30ri6dpkej4h4d8mejmat98o "TDD as One True Way" versus "TDD as devil-spawned tempter" is not a productive contrast. Most of us have similar goals for development: confidence, impact, challenge, belonging. Test-driven development is one path toward these goals, but there are many other paths. This conversation in six parts explores tradeoffs in development, places TDD in those tradeoffs, and gives you perspective with which you can decide for yourself how you want to program.

Engineers will simulate a failure of one of the spacecraft's three main parachutes, releasing it before Orion has landed.   Exploration Flight Test-1, an uncrewed test of the spacecraft that will send Orion 3,600 miles away from Earth, is scheduled for September 2014. Orion's parachutes are being tested to ensure they can slow the capsule for a safe landing in the Pacific Ocean as the spacecraft reenters Earth's atmosphere from deep space missions at speeds of up to 20,000 mph. Want to ask a Question? Submit questions on Google+ or Twitter in advance and during the event using the hashtag #askOrion. Before the Hangout begins, we will open a comment thread on the NASA Facebook page where questions may be posted.

Reinventors Network830,188Here's a really hard problem that Larry Lessig is not sure how to solve: "Let's assume we've got a fundamentally corrupt government, in the precise sense that the dependence upon "funders" corrupts the intended dependence upon "the people alone," and that too many within that system are too deeply connected to it to push for its change. That means any effective movement for change has got to come from the outside. How would a grassroots movement in the Internet Age create the pressure such a change would require? How would the people who brought the Internet to scale tackle this problem?" Joining Larry in his effort is a veritable who's who of internet know-how, the folks who have built & scaled networks for change: internet pioneer Tim O'Reilly, Change.org Founder Ben Rattray, Moveon.org Executive Director Anna Galland, VC Brad Burnham, Executive Producer of TED Media June Cohen, Bram Cohen, creator of BitTorrent, and Markos Moulitsas, Founder of Daily Kos. Reinvent Money in Politics2013-07-11 20:00:00191

Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station.

Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008326

Yifat Cohen79,483*Supporting Autism and making memories* _This Hangout is Public - please invite and share._ No more crying kids on the laps of a giant man…you can talk to Santa and ask him anything you want from the safety of your home, and have a memory to go back and watch any time you want (this *is* YouTube, after all). *IMAGINE THIS* You are 4 years old. You join a Hangout with Santa. *It's only you and him*. He's not a big giant stranger holding you tight so you tell him exactly what you want. On Christmas morning you open a personal letter from Santa referencing your private chat, and a time stamp pointing you it so you can go back, watch it again and share with your friends. *5-10 YEARS LATER* You go back and see what you asked of Santa as a little 4 years old. *And that's how memories are made.* *ALL LETTER PROCEEDS GO TO SUPPORT AUTISM* The Hangout is free, and you will leave with a great video of you and Santa. You can also purchase a personalized letter from Santa and gift an autistic child an Ipad to help him learn and communicate. *THIS HANGOUT IS PUBLIC - PLEASE INVITE AND SHARE.* We'd love to give as many kids as we can the opportunity to talk to Santa one on one and create life long memories.

Life at Google2,449,889Want another chance to learn what it's really like to interview for a technical role at Google? Once again, three of our Pittsburgh engineers will be conducting a candidate coaching session in a Hangout On Air Tuesday, October 9 at 3pm EST (7pm UTC). As with the session they did for us in August, they will deliver a presentation on what to expect in an engineering interview and walk through a live demonstration of how to tackle an interview question.

And if you are on Twitter, join the conversation with hashtag #Dodd. MPAA Chairman Chris Dodd's is giving a talk about "Creative Content and the Cloud" at the San Francisco Commonwealth Club -- and EFF's activism team will be on hand to cover the event through our live Twitter account,@EFFLive. We're going to provide a steady stream of humorous and thoughtful commentary throughout Dodd's speech, so please join us online or in San Francisco. Chris Dodd pushed hard to pass the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a bill that would given content holders new tools to censor the Internet in the name of stopping "piracy."  Dodd has also said that he is "confident" negotiations for a SOPA revival are taking place. While it's tempting to write off that confidence as the result of watching one too many zombie movies, it should be no surprise that the MPAA is pushing for a new backroom deal. That's why EFF and other Internet freedom advocates are committed to fighting for an uncensored web.

1. RIP Cecil the lion

2. Whoever killed you is a complete jackass. (I don't name offenders. They don't deserve a mention and attention.)

3. Trophy hunting is ridiculous. What you're hunting is a defenseless animal roaming in the wild that you shoot with a gun or arrows from miles away. Damn cowards. You should give those animals a fair chance at defending themselves and try to be closer (Well of course, I'm rooting on the wild animals to pounce on the hunters first.) How about saving us the misfortune of losing wonderful and majestic animals and you lunatics just do a trophy hunter vs trophy hunter tournament. Imagine all the adrenaline rush from trying to hunt and kill someone who can absolutely kill you too. That should be legal sports for trophy hunters. Yup. Trophy hunting Games. May the gods be ever in you favor. Jackass.

yeah. I totally talk like that.

If you're an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker), you can relate. Just tape the items outside, and be done with it. :D

It's about our Balikbayan Boxes (Care Packages) which is normally (the extra large!) 24 x 18 x 24 inches in size. The care box is packed as if you'd want the whole Costco/Mall to fit in it. Overall weight for the box is irrelevant.

Balikbayan boxes are very much part of the Filipino culture. OFWs would sometimes take a whole year to fill boxes before they send it home to their loved ones.

It caused quite a brouhaha lately when PH Bureau of Customs said they will randomly open the Balikbayan boxes. Rampant stealing of these boxes are so common.

I just can't imagine how Trump would formulate his foreign policy. He can't even give undocumented immigrants the decency they deserve as human beings, and that's a domestic issue. (A what if....) Trump + Palin's foreign policy is (omg) a recipe for disaster waiting to happen.

Now that's tech in 2015! Alphabet Health or Alphabet Wearable? :)

3 years ago we embarked on a project to put computing inside a contact lens -- an immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health.  While I am delighted at the progress that project has made, I could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into -- a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.  The efforts it has spawned include  a nanodiagnostics platform, a cardiac and activity monitor, and the Baseline Study.

It’s a huge undertaking, and I am delighted to announce that the life sciences team is now ready to graduate from our X lab and become a standalone Alphabet company, with Andy Conrad as CEO.  While the reporting structure will be different, their goal remains the same. They’ll continue to work with other life sciences companies to move new technologies from early stage R&D to clinical testing—and, hopefully—transform the way we detect, prevent, and manage disease.  
   
The team is relatively new but very diverse including software engineers, oncologists, and optics experts.  This is the type of company we hope will thrive as part of Alphabet and I can’t wait to see what they do next.___Now that's tech in 2015! Alphabet Health or Alphabet Wearable? :)

Then I thought.... Can't the equatorial countries store and distribute tons and tons of solar energy to the world electric grid? Why aren't we in that phase yet? /bleh

Here there be photons!

Check out Project Sunroof, which uses information that’s in Google Maps to figure out how many solar panels you’d probably need to provide power to your house, and how much you could save on your electric bill. Find out more in the video below___Definitely worth checking out.

When I saw this video dubbed The Color of Feelings, feelings was not the first to come in mind while I was watching it, but instead I saw the universe, galaxies and planets; and how galaxies moved in space; and even how a star was born or it probably exploded. It's as if the colors in every round bead is like a planet with all its different elements surrounded by a protective barrier. It gives me a new visualization for the universe. What do you know, eh. Paint, oil, milk, honey and cinnamon! Anyway, this video is totally mesmerizing.

The cops handled this situation in an unforgiving manner. How would one even call it? Vaginal search? (Oh technically part of "body cavity search". Yup, had to google that.)

Imagine being cuffed and forcefully held while lying down in a public place so the cops can search or probe through your vagina. WTF! Don't they have some kind of weed breathalyzer? Then again, it's weed which is legal in some states. /insert Jon Stewart stare here.

I'm guessing she taunted the male cop and shoved the weed in her vagina so this thing escalated like whoa. That's not what happened? Jeebus son of Jupiter.

How many times do you have to deal with creepy guys on here? Based on my experience, on average, it's 1 - 2 every other post.

It's as if it's a real job that requires a great deal of patience. One where you have to channel your inner Dalai Lama because how peaceful can you get when you get trivial nonsense from strangers who ask if they can chat with you?

In the last four years, I've been trying to understand the behavior of people who tend to creep me out. I've narrowed down the cause to these issues: the lack of skill or finesse on how to approach women, then there's the language barrier or lost in translation issues; and lastly, the big culture difference especially with those who lack respect for women in their culture.

I want to get something good out of these unpleasant and (yes, it is a very) unwelcoming experience. I think the only thing good to do is to make sure I teach my son how to respect women. I don't know how to influence the change of people's culture so I'll just at least be responsible for one person. Sounds fair, right? And who knows, my son might meet your daughter. It's a small world.

So what would you exactly tell your son on how they should respect the women they encounter in their lives be offline or online?

2. We have that inclusion problem in tech. Here's one place to look to discover amazing engineers via #ILookLikeAnEngineer 
3. I find it funny that Wenger's ad was being criticized. It looks normal. As with anything, it always goes both ways. If the ad looks normal then you have to step back and look at the criticisms from another angle --from those that put the negative light on it. What's their issue?

3. Trophy hunting is ridiculous. What you're hunting is a defenseless animal roaming in the wild that you shoot with a gun or arrows from miles away. Damn cowards. You should give those animals a fair chance at defending themselves and try to be closer (Well of course, I'm rooting on the wild animals to pounce on the hunters first.) How about saving us the misfortune of losing wonderful and majestic animals and you lunatics just do a trophy hunter vs trophy hunter tournament. Imagine all the adrenaline rush from trying to hunt and kill someone who can absolutely kill you too. That should be legal sports for trophy hunters. Yup. Trophy hunting Games.

Fascinating!

Artifical Chemotaxis

Something that explains the attraction found in drops of food colouring.

“ The critical fact was that food colouring is a two-component fluid. In such fluids, two different chemical compounds coexist while retaining separate molecular identities.

The droplets in this experiment consisted of two molecular compounds found naturally in food colouring: water and propylene glycol. The researchers discovered how the dynamic interactions of these two molecular components enabled inanimate droplets to mimic some of the behaviours of living cells.

This complex behavior is something called artificial chemotaxis which Manu Prakash explains in layman’s terms in the video below: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMsaH6SY4CY

The physical properties of these fluids give rise to this immense complexity of behavior. For example, chasing and sensing each other, and very much what we call artificial chemotaxis.

Chemotaxis is the idea in biology that one single cell can sense where its enemy is, and it brings up all its machinery, and it chases that enemy to try to eat it.”

I was trying out Material Design Lite (http://www.getmdl.io/). I figured that the best way to test the demo was to use it on Blogger. 

Here it is --> MDL on Blogger : http://blog.carmelyne.com/ and there weren't any issues with the layout using the hosted MDL links to the js and stylesheets.

I'll go through more of the tags tomorrow (https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/47270?hl=en#global) + widgets, and see how far I can get. 

P.S. Yup, I can combine the Google Font links. Some D.R.Y attention needed. What am I saying. Ignore that. Sorry, an icon and a font. It's the alpha version, eh. I really just wanted to see if it's possible to use MDL on Blogger without the layout breaking and if the components work. The answer so far is yes I can use it!

I think coders, engineers and web/mobile designers/ui/ux are the masons of the 21st century.

How did masons manage to get jobs back in the middle ages or the renaissance? I imagine they showed up for work whether they were skilled masons or not. One simply showed up to learn to become a mason if one is unskilled with the art of masonry.

Fast forward today, one has to go through some mentally taxing process during the application process. Did you meet the criteria during the pre-screen? Did your resume stand out? Do you have enough street cred? Do you know the right people?

The web and mobile related careers are very much different from a dentist, a doctor or a physicist because the fact is everyone in this industry is still teaching themselves what to do and how to do it. The web is only 25 years old. It's so young, and yet it's the most unwelcoming and also most... more »

Despite this article's title, it's about more than just women of color in technology: it's about recruiting and retaining people from underrepresented groups across the board. And that's something extremely important to the success of any technology company.

Why? There are three major reasons.

(1) Diverse groups avoid stupid product mistakes. This is in literally every sense of the word "diverse:" if you have people from different groups in your team, they'll notice – and you'll prioritize – problems that you never would have spotted otherwise. If your system doesn't work for the deaf and someone on your team is deaf, or if it requires hitting tiny affordances all the time and you have someone with a motion disability, you're never going to ship it that way, and that means more users. If your system has a price structure, or a branding, or a visual style that would never appeal to users outside of Silicon Valley, you'll catch that if people on your team are from a very different world. If women experience a different kind of abuse on your system than men do, then you'll build entirely different protections into your system if there are women in the room when you're making the design decisions.

The key point is that these are just examples: nobody can predict what an extra set of eyeballs, especially different eyeballs, will catch. The one thing that's reliable is that each set of eyeballs – not just working grunt jobs, but in the core decision-making process – means you don't make a mistake that shuts out a bunch of potential customers.

(2) Diversity interrupts groupthink. It's really easy for a room full of similar people to start to talk in similar ways. Not only do you not make the right decisions, you don't even realize there are decisions that you're implicitly making. More different eyes prevent that.

(3) You get to hire the best people. People who haven't been in this game very long think "Recruit minorities? You mean lower the bar!" People who have played this for a while hear that and think "Sucker."

The thing about structural racism/sexism/etc. is that a lot of people from the various underrepresented groups don't have the "traditional signifiers" of being good. They won't have gone to the top-tier schools, or they won't have any contacts, or their job history will be so-so. What you quickly learn in engineering, though, is that these signifiers are simply signals that you use when trying to find good people – and overall, as signals, they kind of suck. Terribly.

I've lost count of how many people I've interviewed who came from top-tier schools and had a glowing résumé and couldn't think an independent thought or design a system on their own to save their lives. Top-tier schools don't provide a systematically better education in CS; often, CS departments are so mathematically inclined that students that don't actively go the extra mile come out with a degree in theory and no ability to code. They used to claim that they were "filtering out the best of the best," but in practice, they do a lot of that filtering starting from "people with enough contacts to get in." 

Job histories are sometimes useful, sometimes not, especially in an era where so many people end up unable to find a job for months or years at a stretch anyway. 

References are great, but they're only a positive signal: the lack of references tells you nothing.

And the important thing is, that unless you're a tiny company hiring a temp, or hiring a senior specialist, you shouldn't be hiring for experience: you should be hiring for brains. You can teach CS; you can't teach smart.

What this means is that among these "underrepresented groups," there are a bunch of smart people out there who, lacking these traditional signifiers, aren't getting the right job offers. And that means smart people that you can hire. Lots of them. All you have to do is hire them and treat them with respect.

(As a side note: I attended GHC, the biggest annual conference for women in CS last year, for recruiting purposes. The quality of people looking for jobs there was insane compared to any other CS event.)


But.... if you want to hire and retain these people, you have to make an active effort. This open letter has a bunch of specific suggestions in it which I personally think are all individually excellent: I endorse these ideas wholeheartedly.

(NB: It also makes several statements about how various companies do things. I have it on good authority that several of these statements are incorrect, but I have no personal knowledge either way and so am neither affirming nor negating that part. My endorsement of this letter is about all of the courses of action it favors, which I think are excellent ideas; on the rest, I have no opinion)

I will add: In my groups, people of all genders, races, and backgrounds are not only welcome but actively desired. This is the case now and will continue to be the case in every team I run in the future.

Thanks to +Erica Joy for pointing me at this great letter.

[DISCLAIMER: I am writing this post in my personal capacity and am not speaking on behalf of Google. I make no assertions as to the truth or falsity of any of the claims of fact made within the letter, nor of any conclusions of law.

Fast forward today, one has to go through some mentally taxing process during the application process. Did you meet the criteria during the pre-screen? Did your resume stand out? Do you have enough street cred? Do you know the right people?

The web and mobile related careers are very much different from a dentist, a doctor or a physicist because the fact is everyone in this industry is still teaching themselves what to do and how to do it. The web is only 25 years old. It's so young, and yet it's the most unwelcoming and also most welcoming industry at the same time. Why? If the big companies won't hire you, then just learn to code and build the next big thing or the not so next big thing. That sounds like an over simplification, but it is kind of like that. Just ask the self taught teen developers building some exciting apps. (http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/young-talented-app-developers/)

Where's the diversity spin on this. I suppose there's none except to be more welcoming to those who want to learn the craft.

Last note, (sorry) I think this is an example of too much: https://medium.com/google-developers/the-core-competencies-of-developer-relations-f3e1c04c0f5b because not all the devs you're reaching out to are engineers. 

P.S. Thor, I need to borrow that hammer to break this glass ceiling.

In case you're having a bad day, you might want to read this image. 

Ok, it's April 12, 1976. Not exactly today, but it will still make you wonder. What if...

I just read on Wikipedia that Apple was founded on April 1. Was that right? A prankster joke? April 1?

Failures are diamonds. They're very precious. It's an important phase in the progress of a study, business or research or the development of a new product or service. It's just too bad that we have such a negative notion about failing or why we fail or when we fail.

I dwell on my failures. I should unlearn that bad habit. I think sharing our failures and discussing them openly  is as important as sharing how we succeeded or overcame some challenge or problem. On the plus side, I'd have lots to share because I have failed  a lot too. There you go.

I've been reading a lot lately about the SpaceX launch failure and I'm not very happy about the "sad" tone.  I think this failure could end up being a really good thing because we're going to learn more about our systems.  I'm very optimistic about this.  When I test rockets, I always learn MUCH MUCH more from failures than from successes.  I think this is no different.  They're going to go through everything with a fine tooth comb and do their best to fix the problem and even improve other potential issues.  This could be a really good thing!!___Failures are diamonds.

Telepresence robots is like Chappie's alpha version. I think Rotten Tomatoes' rating of the Chappie movie was off quite a bit or perhaps it was spot on because only the robot acted really well in the movie.

Anyhow, the ability to control a robot with one's thought is out of this world. It makes me believe that one day we can truly transfer our consciousness to inanimate objects. Nothing is impossible nowadays except for Immigration Reform and Republicans creating new jobs.

Disabled Patients Pilot Telepresence Robot w/ Their Thoughts!

Visiting other people is extremely difficult for those suffering from paralysis or limited mobility. But researchers headed by José del R. Millán at the Defitech Foundation Chair in Brain-Machine Interface (CNBI) have been working on a brain-machine approach to restore a sense of independence for disabled people. The idea is to control a robot remotely from home with one's thoughts.

For several weeks, 9 disabled people and 10 healthy people in Italy, Germany and Switzerland put on electrode-studded hats capable of analyzing their brain signals. Then, from their home country, they transmitted real-time instructions for the robot to move via the Internet. A wheeled robot with a video camera and screen in a laboratory at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) was able to relay video as it moved while displaying the remote pilot's face. The pilot was able to interact with whoever the robot crossed paths with. Professor Millán says, "Each of the 9 subjects with disabilities managed to remotely control the robot with ease after less than 10 days of training." The tests revealed no difference in piloting ability between healthy and disabled subjects.

The technology developed by the researchers goes even further as the robot is able to avoid obstacles, even without being told to. The pilot can also take a break from indicating the direction the robot is to move. If it doesn't receive more indications, the robot will continue on the indicated path until it receives an order to stop. In this way, control over the robot is shared between the human and computer, allowing the pilot to rest while navigating.

These results bring to a close the European project called TOBI (Tools for Brain-Computer Interaction), which began in 2008.

Linking media or rather embedding linked media like this is very useful and convenient.

Player FM now embeds a player inside shared podcast links. (https://twitter.com/playerfm/status/614461224277909504).

I'm aware some podcasters want to do the same for their own sites; let me know if interested and I can write some notes on what's involved in adding it to your site and getting it approved by Twitter.___Linking media or rather embedding linked media like this is very useful and convenient.
