This type of salute is normally directed at our nation’s soldiers fighting for freedom across the globe and defending us here at home.

Dear +Google+​​,

I'm at my parents' house. My wife and I flew over 1,000 miles to get here and spent close to $1,000 to get here. We're all sitting here on the couch and as I tried to share some photos to the Chromecast which I demanded my father have for his TV, I realized that the +Google Photos​​ app does not support Chromecast.

Whoever forgot this feature needs to be fired.

Here I am, trying to share photos from our travels and am instead trying to explain to my father why Android is superior to Apple. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it's time to get an iPhone and Apple TV so I don't embarrass myself that next time I go to share these precious moments.

Love Travels

Working in the hospitality business is unlike any other job. To succeed in hospitality, you have to have the gene the inspires you to open your home to strange guests from strange lands. This same gene always has you asking them questions about their travels, where they've been, where they're going and what they've seen. The hospitality gene makes you thirsty for new drinks, and hungry for new tastes.

When you travel, you don't look for the ordinary, but the extraordinary. You don't settle for something familiar when you know there is something unique to be discovered.

As humans, we are all unique and I am so proud to work for a company that accepts each of us and encourages every one to be who they are and proud of everything they stand for.

Another Year and Google+ Moves On

One of my favorite lines pertaining to Kermit the Frog is, “it’s not always easy being green.” As an Android/Google+ user and technology enthusiast, I can relate. However, I’m grateful that we have a space where we can connect, share information and build community like never before.

+Allen Firstenberg might argue until we’re dead, but I really like the idea of a real name network in which people are encouraged to be transparent, not trollish. I have absolutely loved the opportunity to meet wonderful, enthusiastic and spirited people like +matthew rappaport, +Derek Ross, +Cliff Roth, +Daria Musk, +Bobbi Jo Woods and all the other ‘usual suspects.’

Another Year and Google+ Moves On

One of my favorite lines pertaining to Kermit the Frog is, “it’s not always easy being green.” As an Android/Google+ user and technology enthusiast, I can relate. However, I’m grateful that we have a space where we can connect, share information and build community like never before.

+Allen Firstenberg might argue until we’re dead, but I really like the idea of a real name network in which people are encouraged to be transparent, not trollish. I have absolutely loved the opportunity to meet wonderful, enthusiastic and spirited people like +matthew rappaport, +Derek Ross, +Cliff Roth, +Daria Musk, +Bobbi Jo Woods and all the other ‘usual suspects.’

However, apart from all of the unique opportunities within these circles and all of the great relationships created, lies an external struggle which was so eloquently illustrated by one of my co-workers yesterday, “so what is Google+? I don’t get it.”

If you’ve ever been asked “hey, is that the new Apple watch?” about your Android Wear device, or “oh wow, is that the new big iPhone?” about your Nexus 6, you know how difficult and frustrating it can be to answer that questions, “What is Google+?” I think the frustration stems from a few problems, one of them, the marketing (or lack of marketing) of the platform, the confusing nature of the platform (it’s not really just one thing) and the virtue that it is constant-changing.

In the last year, we’ve waved goodbye to +Google Glass (sorry, +Robert Warren, I'm sure it will be back...), we’ve said hello to Project Fi, we’ve gotten a bit closer to +Google Self-Driving Car Project and have welcomed +Google Fiber into a number of new cities. However, through all of this advancement, the future of this platform seems unclear.

The “Google+ is dead” posts are finally passé, and readers are tired of hearing the boy cry wolf; those stories have become about as popular as Samsung’s TouchWiz.

Moving forward, I encourage you to create, to curate, to share and to use this platform as an opportunity to exploit and grow your passion(s).

Just last night, I was explaining to my wife, +Brittani McDermott, why I am always taking pictures of my food and sharing them to Google+. “I’m on a quest to become better,” I explained. Better at selecting ingredients. Better at planning menus. Better at plating. Better at creating a memorable experience. Thankfully, I have an interactive place to share that passion, connect with other, gather support and encouragement while having an abundance of carefully curated information that will only make me better.

One of the things I’m always asking people is, “what is your passion and what are you doing to exercise it?”

My biggest passion is learning, and I love to share my journey. Thank you for coming along for the ride.

Great job by +Terry McNeil​. This is what good cooking is all about!

Steak and Potatoes

Tri Tip, New Potatoes, Butter, Dill, Smoked Maldon Salt

I literally squeeed at the Farmer's Market today. New potatoes!!! I don't have a garden (yet), probably not this year. The yard after the snow melted is basically a nightmare. Slowly improving but no where near what I hope it will be.

When I squeeed, the person at the stall looked at me, smiled and said: "We dug them up on Thursday."

Two precious bags of new potatoes joined me on the drive to work. To say the least, it was a tad hot in the kitchen today. Lucky find in another stall was Tri tip steak. I should have bought a lotto ticket today, luck seemed to be with me.

Nothing fancy, steamed the potatoes, tossed them with some fresh dill and sweet butter. A generous pinch of smoked maldon salt. Seared Tri tip. On the plate, a few quick photos. Get in mah belly!!!

Sometimes fancy is fun and delicious. Sometimes simplicity with amazing ingredients trumps even fancy.

I remember digging new potatoes with both my Grandparents and my parents. Some things leave a lasting impression on you.

This.

Why the Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage is a huge victory for straight people.

Celebrations and congratulations abound online over the Supreme Court's ruling that gay marriage is legal in all 50 states. 

Most feel that it's an enormous win for gay people who want to get married, which (obviously) it is. 

But as good as most Americans feel about what this means for our gay family and friends, the truth is that its effect on people who are actually gay and who will actually get married is only one part of what happened today. 

The larger event is that in a huge test of the Constitution, the principle of equality emerged victorious. 

The Constitution is pretty fucking clear on equality. The 14th Amendment says: "No state shall... deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

You have on the one side the mere idea of equality enshrined into the Constitution, and on the other the dirty, real-life cesspool of human bigotry, prejudice, fear, hate, narrow interests, privilege and more. 

What happened today is that the Constitution won, once again transferring the benefits of an enlightened group of people from our past and bestowing it upon the present, a present in which special interests, greed and the callous disregard for equality rules our politics. 

Note that this isn't about equality, per se -- it's not about using the law to make everyone equal. It's about every citizen being treated equally by our government. It's about equality before the law. 

Without equality before the law, America stands for nothing.

So, congratulations to every American. This was a huge win for all of us. ___This.

We Are Moving Forward

Today's news is extremely important to me and my family. I'm so proud to live in a country that finally recognizes that our right to love some one is inalienable. Progress takes time, and we still have a long way to go, but I'm so happy that we are continuing to move forward.

The American (Union) Flag

If you count the stars, you'll notice that the Confederate states were included as the Union didn't recognize their secession.

"...a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

What is a DSLR, anyway?

If you're following my Photography & Videography collection, get ready for a lot of links with a lot of information. I'm new to DSLR photography and I want to share my learnings with anyone else that's learning too. As I find some of the best stuff on the web, I'll be sharing it here. If you have anything you'd like me to share, just send me a DM with the link!

Learning to Delete

So, I'm finally learning the basics of +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and one of the things that I had the biggest challenge with was learning to delete all of the bad images that I've captured. I'm starting to learn that as a completely amateur photographer, only about 10% of what I shoot has any decent composition. So...something that I'm learning now is not to worry about saving every single image and ditching the ones I'd never care to share.

In the process of doing this, I've already learned that capturing in JPEG+RAW is only creating more work for me. Since my first day of having Lightroom, I've already tweaked my camera to only shoot in RAW. The power I have to tweak images in Lightroom make the images so much more appealing, and not having to manage two sets of files means less time wasted, less hard drive space wasted... more »

Now, if I had only known what I know now from the get go, I wouldn't have so much back tracking to do!

This is my new favorite app.

Earlier today, I asked about photo management and some of you suggested I pay for the Adobe Photography Creative Cloud service. During my installation, I learned about a bunch of free Android apps from Adobe. This one is so simple but so awesome!

Simply snap a photo and it creates a pallette that you can use later on. Such a great way to capture inspiration whenever it strikes!

What is your digital photo workflow?

First of all, let me admit a few things:

1) I just purchased my first DSLR this year.
2) Until this year, I didn't know anything about RAW.
3) I shoot in JPEG+RAW 'just in case' I want to use the RAW.
4) I have no idea how to manage all of these files efficiently.

Being new to digital photography can be completely overwhelming. First of all, you have to make an investment: your equipment. You're faced with different formats and different systems. Mirrorless or DSLR? Canon, Sony or Nikon? Then when you finally get your camera, you have dozens if not hundreds of different settings to learn about. Finally, after you've taken all of your photos, you have to figure out what to do with all of them!

I'm really curious to learn how you all manage your photos, what your workflow is,... more »

Where have you been?

With this very platform, Google gave us the opportunity to eliminate borders, shrink the globe and make it so easy to communicate with people halfway across the world. Several years ago, G+ users began traveling around the world to meet their new acquaintances and hence the term was born, Hangout In Real Life.

I've flown to New York, met with many in Nashville, Dallas, Atlanta, and even bumped into (or picked up) a few of you in airports. No matter how or where we met, many of these folks have become lifelong friends, and for that I am so grateful.

Thanks to all of you who have made this journey so much fun!

Why isn't a drone being used?

The Dallas Police Department has just rolled a 4-wheeled robot up to the suspect's vehicle in the #DallasPDShooting and it makes me wonder why a quadcopter isn't being used to obtain a live image from inside the vehicle. Any thoughts?
