So I walked through my Circles and wanted to highlight, for you, 100 of my closest friends from Google+, whose posts I regularly enjoy, engage with, and many of whom reflect my offline relationships as well.No pages or brands are in this "Top 100". But you won't go wrong by adding this circle of sharp, engaging, humorous, clever and unique people. Thank you for being part of Google+. Didn't make this list? Keep engaging, and I'm sure I'll share you in the future.2012-11-21 21:32:2610015228CC G+

One of the cool things about Xiaomi's new Beijing office is that we were finally able to dedicate a little space to some of the gifts we've received from Mi fans over the last couple of years.  Some priceless items in there!

We've just wrapped up our 2014 Mi Fan Festival, which celebrated Xiaomi's 4th Birthday yesterday with a huge online party, over 1.3 million phones sold and ¥1.5 Billion in revenues in 12 hours.  A mind blowing experience.  

But nothing beats witnessing the excitement behind the scenes.  The war room dashboards, last-minute bugs fixed in real time, the synchronized drums at the end of every sale hour, games played throughout the day around the office (except if you're in the e-commerce team!), a 剪刀石头布 (rock-paper-scissors) on-stage marathon, and a giant birthday cake for 1000 people.

I tried to capture it all with a few photos and a couple of videos, but it's virtually impossible to do justice to the real experience.  All I can really say is... thank you Mi Fans and Xiaomi colleagues — 你们碉堡了!

Xiaomi in Top 10

According to Hong Kong's Counterpoint Research, two of Xiaomi's devices were in the top 10 list of most sold smartphone models around the world in February of 2014.

Even though these rankings may or may not be super accurate, we're really excited considering that the vast majority of Xiaomi's volume is still in Mainland China, whereas all the other models in the ranking are global hits.  Lots of work ahead!

We're working on bringing a clever little Xiaomi gadget to users all around the world pretty soon.

You can plug it into your Xiaomi phone headset jack and turn it into a clickable button to take quick pictures, turn on the flashlight, record phone calls and so on, all without unlocking your phone. You can program up to 10 actions for 10 different click types using a dedicated app.

We haven’t named this product internationally yet. What should we call it? Mi Button? Mi Key? Mi Press? Please help us come up with some cool names :)

Breaking Sad

Disclaimer: Depression has been written about and discussed for hundreds of years. Despite advances in understanding its complexities, depression remains one of the most controversial issues today. I recognise the differing, often polarising, viewpoints regarding mental illness. Furthermore, I do not claim to be an oracle of all things depression. This is simply an account of how I am experiencing my version of this affliction.

I suffer from clinical depression. Whilst I’m not proud of it, I’m not ashamed of it either. Why am I telling you this now? Well, because I was just diagnosed with it a few weeks ago. People may think depression hits you overnight (and in some cases it does) but, whilst depression can be obvious, often it’s a sneaky bugger.

Today is Singles Day in China.  It's basically the opposite of Valentine's Day and people celebrate their bachelor lives rather than their love. Hilarious in many ways, but it's also serious business.  

Curiously, Singles Day is the biggest e-commerce shopping day in the world — it's essentially China's Cyber Monday, except much bigger.

Xiaomi Week 1

I've just completed my first week at Xiaomi here in Beijing and it's been a pretty intense journey so far.  

The Chinese tech ecosystem moves at breakneck speed. I've never seen such fierce competition and such impassioned desire to build things fast. There's a pervasive entrepreneurial spirit in companies both small and big.

Xiaomi is every bit as fascinating and Google-like as I expected. The engineering floor is always busy with people building well into the night. The teams are small and scrappy, and speed (in both UX and execution) is always a top priority. Everyone at Xiaomi — engineers, PMs, designers and marketeers — is insanely focused on users and "doing the right thing".  We have a special term for our users — we call them "Mi fans", and "Mi fans" always come first.

A new Android chapter

After nearly 5½ years at Google and almost 3 years as a member of the Android team — the most amazing group of people I've ever worked with in my life — I have decided to start a new career chapter.

In a few weeks, I'll be joining the Xiaomi team in China to help them expand their incredible product portfolio and business globally — as Vice President, Xiaomi Global.  I'm really looking forward to this new challenge, and am particularly excited about the opportunity to continue to help drive the Android ecosystem.

It has been an amazing ride and true honor to be part of the Android team at Google, and I especially want to thank +Andy Rubin , +Hiroshi Lockheimer , +Sundar Pichai and +Vic Gundotra for their phenomenal support and mentorship over the years.

+Android team, I will truly miss you all!
