This photo is taken by Platon. He is one of the world's best photographers. He spent 2 hours talking to me before taking this photo because he believes that understanding the personality is key before taking portrait shots! It was a strange experience. What do you think when you see this photo this photo?

I officially resigned from Google after 6 years of being with the company that changed my life. Its been an amazing journey, and I'm really grateful to everything Google did for me. And Special thanks to @GoogleVentures team for their support throughout. Being an EIR at GV during 2014 was a great learning experience.



As I'm turning 34, I thought its time for some new challenge. Working on a startup with two co-founders to explore potential disruptions in the social/news space. More on that coming soon.

Icon Ambulance

One Sunday morning, January 6th, 2008 I was attending religious services when my cell phone vibrated. As discreetly as possible, I checked the phone and noticed that my phone said "Caller ID unknown". I choose to ignore.

After services, as I was walking to my car with my family, I checked my cell phone messages. The message left was from Steve Jobs. "Vic, can you call me at home? I have something urgent to discuss" it said.

Before I even reached my car, I called Steve Jobs back. I was responsible for all mobile applications at Google, and in that role, had regular dealings with Steve. It was one of the perks of the job.

"Hey Steve - this is Vic", I said. "I'm sorry I didn't answer your call earlier. I was in religious services, and the caller ID said unknown, so I didn't pick up".

Steve laughed. He said, "Vic, unless the Caller ID said 'GOD', you should never pick up during services".

I laughed nervously. After all, while it was customary for Steve to call during the week upset about something, it was unusual for him to call me on Sunday and ask me to call his home. I wondered what was so important?

"So Vic, we have an urgent issue, one that I need addressed right away. I've already assigned someone from my team to help you, and I hope you can fix this tomorrow" said Steve.

"I've been looking at the Google logo on the iPhone and I'm not happy with the icon. The second O in Google doesn't have the right yellow gradient. It's just wrong and I'm going to have Greg fix it tomorrow. Is that okay with you?"

Of course this was okay with me. A few minutes later on that Sunday I received an email from Steve with the subject "Icon Ambulance". The email directed me to work with Greg Christie to fix the icon.

Since I was 11 years old and fell in love with an Apple II, I have dozens of stories to tell about Apple products. They have been a part of my life for decades. Even when I worked for 15 years for Bill Gates at Microsoft, I had a huge admiration for Steve and what Apple had produced.

But in the end, when I think about leadership, passion and attention to detail, I think back to the call I received from Steve Jobs on a Sunday morning in January. It was a lesson I'll never forget. CEOs should care about details. Even shades of yellow. On a Sunday.

To one of the greatest leaders I've ever met, my prayers and hopes are with you Steve.

-Vic___:)

“It's not the critic who counts. It's not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled. Credit belongs to the man who really was in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat, and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come short and short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and knows the great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause, who at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And, who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and cruel souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt

From the book: "Imagine, on creativity and brainstorming" (via +Amr Salama):

"Pixar, as it turns out, is a big fan of constructive criticism. Indeed, the company relies heavily on the strategy, as every workday begins with an intense session of what they call ‘plussing’. Here’s how plussing works: “a few dozen animators and computer scientists gather in a small screening room filled with comfy velour couches… Then the team begins analyzing the few seconds of film produced the day before, ruthlessly shredding each frame… No detail is too small to tear apart” (loc. 2384). The participants are encouraged to criticize each other’s ideas as much as possible, but there’s one catch: if you’re going to criticize an idea, you must also offer a way to improve it (hence why the session is called ‘plussing’).

Thanks to Nike+ (http://nikerunning.nike.com) ,running became more fun and competitive for me. People obsessed with data and tracking will find this whole experience amazing.

I keep trying to beat up my previous records and improving my overall ranking on weekly basis. 

P.S.: I'm on a self-designed program to lose 15kg of body fat (33 lbs) in 3 months. So far I've achieved 60% of those damn fats in 50 days.

The self-designed program: 

1) Initially no rice/pasta/bread for 6 days a week (reduced now to 3 days a week with 1/2 of my previous amounts). But I can eat any other carbs at any quantities. 

2) No sugar what so ever at all (duhhh).

3) Lots of fruits and vegetables (back to nature).

4) Run for not less than 30km/week and a little bit of weight lifting every 3 days.

I have mixed feelings about this fish cleaning stuff :)

Fish food... literally!
Yes, you are seeing tiny fish eating the dead skin off of my toes! Originating from Turkey, these freshwater "doctor fish" have been used for more than 100 years to treat serious skin conditions such as psoriasis.

Today, they can be found in regular foot spas and have become a common trend in Europe, Asia and the UK (and now slowly spreading to the Mid East). Curiously enough, they seem to have been banned in 14 US states for hygiene reasons!

These photos were taken today in a Cairo mall. Cost is equivalent to $10 for 15 minutes. Have you tried it?___I have mixed feelings about this fish cleaning stuff :)
