Today is Google+'s 5th birthday. If you had told me five years ago that I would be the Program Manager for the Community Management Team behind this product, I wouldn't have believed you. That'd be wayyyy too full circle. But... here I am! I was a power user of Google+ towards the end of my college tenure and it's the reason why I have the career I do in the city I do. This product has taught me so, so much (professionally and personally) and I'm just so stupidly grateful to the teams who made Google+ possible. I, sincerely, owe so much to those people.

Thing is, I'm just one of the many millions of people who have had their lives changed (or at least positively impacted) by Google+. I know so many stories of people who have also started careers there, become amazing photographers or writers, created long-lasting friendships, dealt with hardship, found their passions, or... more »

When your family is attacked, you hug them closer.

Make no mistake: we encourage actions like the terror in Orlando when we name call, demonize gay people, spread misinformation, or otherwise create situations to make a certain group feel unsafe. Our own prejudice validates those who want to harm others and gives them confidence. We need to think, every moment, about how we can bring more people closer together; not about how we can elevate ourselves above at-risk groups. My advice? Go online and search. Read people's stories. But, above all, ask questions. Be curious, not afraid.

My heart, my tears, and my thoughts go out to everyone directly affected. And a special thought for every single gay man, woman, or kid, every trans person or open-minded experiencer out there - This man wanted people like us to feel afraid. He targeted all of us last night. But, instead of fear,... more »

Back to work!

If you're wondering whether two weeks in Iceland are the greatest, I can confirm that they are. We rented a Happy Camper and traveled across the entirety of the island, hiking to waterfalls, glaciers, and hot springs. And while all of that was so amazing, I'm pretty happy to be back to work!

What's been going on with you guys? How's it been going on G+?

Absolutely thrilled to announce that I've been brought onto the board for the nonprofit Center for New Music in downtown San Francisco! It's a huge honor and I look forward to applying my passion for bringing likeminded people together, helping them create amazing stuff (in this case contemporary music). Huge thanks to C4NM founder Adam Fong, board member Bea Dominguez, and the rest of the crew for trusting me to find ways for these amazing creators to collaborate and communicate.

If you're unclear with the Center for New Music, they "foster contemporary music’s growth by giving practicing artists access to professional resources and expertise, and by providing them with opportunities for sharing knowledge and exploring new ideas."

With an inspiring performance space right off of Market St, the Center for New Music has been a staple for enabling experimentation in sound. Founded in 2012, the center has been growing rapidly thanks the value it places on diversity, exploration, collaboration, and incubation of developing artists.

So... anyways... SUPER STOKED! ___

Black Lives Matter isn't about exclusion. It isn't saying that one group of people is more important than another. Rather, it's about focus. It is saying that one group of people needs to be talked about, specifically, and addressed, specifically.

I'm uninterested in fighting against certain people. I'm fascinated by how we can work together to fight ideas. Exclusion. Discrimination. Hate. Prejudice. These are all concepts that we, as human beings, can fight every day, no matter our physical strength or access to tools.

Let's use this wonderful tool called the Internet to explore each other's interests, passions, fears, and insecurities - just for a little bit - instead of trying to prove someone wrong. I think it's high time we refocus on learning from each other again.

Taron is a new coaster in Germany that proves rides can be intense, thrilling, and exciting without inversions. Built by Intamin AG, Taron is a double launching sit down coaster, complete with Intamin's signature "twisty-ness" and sharp directional changes.

What makes Taron really special, however, is its theming. Phantasialand is known for creating intricately themed rides and Taron is no exception. Because of height restrictions in Europe, you won't always find the biggest rides in the world, but parks like Phantasialand succeed when they come up with creative tactics to make their comparatively smaller rides some of the baddest.

Today is Google+'s 5th birthday. If you had told me five years ago that I would be the Program Manager for the Community Management Team behind this product, I wouldn't have believed you. That'd be wayyyy too full circle. But... here I am! I was a power user of Google+ towards the end of my college tenure and it's the reason why I have the career I do in the city I do. This product has taught me so, so much (professionally and personally) and I'm just so stupidly grateful to the teams who made Google+ possible. I, sincerely, owe so much to those people.

Thing is, I'm just one of the many millions of people who have had their lives changed (or at least positively impacted) by Google+. I know so many stories of people who have also started careers there, become amazing photographers or writers, created long-lasting friendships, dealt with hardship, found their passions, or... more »

Thing is, I'm just one of the many millions of people who have had their lives changed (or at least positively impacted) by Google+. I know so many stories of people who have also started careers there, become amazing photographers or writers, created long-lasting friendships, dealt with hardship, found their passions, or otherwise found meaning (or themselves) through the connections they made on Google+. There's so much emotional capital invested into this product and it's a legitimate dream come to true to use my career to foster that.

As Google+ continues its transition away from the social fabric that connects all of Google's service together and into an interests-based network, I couldn't be more excited about the future of this product. Five years is a long time and there's been a lot of change - and I couldn't be more ready to help make this product the very best it can be.

Big shout outs to +Stacy Frazer +Amanda Blain +Alida Brandenburg +Ryan Crowe +Daria Musk +Natalie Villalobos +Tiffany Henry +Tom Moncho +Andy Bohm in particular for everything.

Happy birthday, Google+! You still look great. #GPlus5___

Pride's here in San Francisco and I stand with my people and our devotion to progress. The last thing we need is a prayer or pity.

Dance hard this weekend, my gays, my queers, my Queens, my allies, and my future husbands.

Say hello to my latest DIY project. Fun fact: I only blew one fuse and didn't electrocute myself once. Wiring is hard. And then it's really easy. And it's always frustrating.

Lightning Rod at Dollywood is the world's first and only launched wooden roller coaster. Yeah, you heard that right: "launched." The ride, manufactured by Rocky Mountain Coaster Co, uses linear induction motors to blast the train up the lift hill instead of a chain lift.

This is also the world's fastest wooden roller coaster at 73mph.

Length: 3,800 ft
Drop: 165 ft
Inversions: 0
Speed: 73 mph

When your family is attacked, you hug them closer.

Make no mistake: we encourage actions like the terror in Orlando when we name call, demonize gay people, spread misinformation, or otherwise create situations to make a certain group feel unsafe. Our own prejudice validates those who want to harm others and gives them confidence. We need to think, every moment, about how we can bring more people closer together; not about how we can elevate ourselves above at-risk groups. My advice? Go online and search. Read people's stories. But, above all, ask questions. Be curious, not afraid.

My heart, my tears, and my thoughts go out to everyone directly affected. And a special thought for every single gay man, woman, or kid, every trans person or open-minded experiencer out there - This man wanted people like us to feel afraid. He targeted all of us last night. But, instead of fear,... more »

Verbolten is a double launching Zierer family coaster at Busch Garden Williamsburg - and it's a very special ride for the USA. Mostly following the layout of the revered Big Bad Wolf (an update for another day), Verbolten tells the story of a car tour through the Autobahn that takes a trip into the dark forest. The ride is split between indoor and outdoor segments.

And here's where Verbolten becomes a very special coaster.... Within the indoor segment, the train will come to a complete stop and be shown one of three shows: spirit of the forest, thunderstorm, and - in a nod to the BBW - wolves. At the brief show's conclusion, the entire train and track will drop vertically 18ft, like a drop tower, before being launched out of the indoor section. It's a big, big surprise for anyone not expecting it.

This is really hard to talk about for me, but I figured I should come clean.... It's true that Taylor and I are no longer together. I know that the rumors are swirling right now, but I'd like to ask all my friends to respect our privacy during this difficult time.

Thank you all for your support and, as a show of gratitude, here's the album art off my next record.

Now.... I wanna see absolutely everybody's hands in the air.....

Gooooooooo team!

One year ago, we introduced Google Photos. And if there’s anything we’ve learned in these short 12 months, it’s that time flies! That’s why creating a home for your memories matters. Google Photos is all about putting the special moments from the past at your fingertips. And in just a year, 200 million of you have stored 13.7 petabytes worth of photos (...and taken 24 million selfies).

Thanks for a wonderful #YearofPhotos . Here’s to more years of taking selfies making memories!

For more on how to get the most out of Google Photos, check out the Google blog:

Standing 456ft high, Kingda Ka at Six Flags: Great Adventure in New Jersey is the world's tallest roller coaster. Built by Intamin AG, it uses a massive hydraulics system to catapult the train 128mph via a (very strong) cable attached to the train's underside. Known for frequent breakdowns and an exhilarating, albeit short, 28sec ride, Kingda Ka is one of only three strata coasters (400ft+) in the world. All strata coasters have been built by Intamin AG.

Fun fact: sometimes the train doesn't make it over the top and it rolls back. "Roll backs" are eagerly anticipated by coaster enthusiasts, but don't happen often. When they do, you're perfectly safe. Magnetic fins are present in the middle of the track and will slow the train down to a stop - until you're launched again.
