Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321234895CC G+

How +Gmail Happened: The True Story 10 Years Later
/by +Harry McCracken

Ten years ago, I paid real cash on eBay for access to Gmail and Orkut, as demand was outstripping supply. This in depth piece talks to my friends +Paul Buchheit and +Kevin Fox about the engineering and design of the early product, with then product manager +Brian Rakowski and now PM +Alex Gawley about decision points and what made the service appealing to users a decade ago. It's a fun piece of web history here on April Fool's Day - and it's no joke.

When Priced for Perfection, Startups Not Given Room for Error
/via +louisgray.com  #startups   #financing   #vc  

Some of the high flying startups of a few years ago haven't seen a perfect run. The miss, relative to expectations, puts incredible pressure on them from users, VCs and the press. Did they raise too much money too soon?

I'm Throwing Out the First Pitch on Friday (Aug 1st) at the A's Game

Before every major league baseball game, there is a ceremonial tradition where a guest is invited to throw from the mound to a member of the home team - after which the game can start.

Today, I took my near four year old son Braden to see the +Oakland Athletics with his dad. This kid eats and sleeps baseball and can virtually name all the A's players, numbers and positions. It was a very fun day. Great weather, views and the A's rolled to a 10-2 win over the Orioles, keeping pace with the Angels in what will be an especially competitive division race all year.

Just got a Firefox OS phone to try

I am intrigued by new market entrants in tech. The Firefox OS is something i'm going to tinker with. This is a fairly low end device. I got it for $85 off eBay and it comes preloaded with weblinks to services - including G+. So far the experience reminds me of early Gingerbread (Android 2.3). I don't plan to add a SIM, so it'll be wifi only. Cute logo though.

This is Our New Beagle/Terrier Pup, Lucy

A week and a half ago, I told you we were thinking of adding a puppy to our mix (http://goo.gl/Ol54U7). The kids adored her, and my wife couldn't stop talking about her, so Lucy joined us yesterday and moved in for real, after the adoption papers were completed. Her original owners abandoned her on a country road near Fresno (because they're bad people, obviously), and she'll be very happy with us. Welcome, Lucy!

From the piece: "It seems like a number of businesses and schools are eyeing Google's low-cost Chromebooks as an affordable alternative to pricier laptops. According to Monday data from The NPD Group, U.S. commercial channel sales - which include businesses, schools, governments, and other organizations - of Chromebooks were up 250 percent over the last year for the first five months of 2014, and made up 35 percent of all channel notebook sales between January and May."

A View from the Top of Suburbia

Yesterday I risked life and limb to snag about 12 wiffle balls and tennis balls that had collected in the gutters (and even under our solar panels) on the roof. While up there, I figured, why not do a panorama with my Nexus 5? Here's what Sunnyvale looks like, two stories up.

I haven't stopped talking about going solar because the benefits are so obvious. Happy to share any and all data if you want to make money from the sun too.

100 Days of Solar Energy: Like Having Two Priuses on My Roof
/via +louisgray.com  #solar   #energy  

100 days ago, we fired up our solar panels from +Sunrun, and started being an energy producer, instead of an energy hog. With a few bills under our belt, we’re saving as much money as we would have saved on gasoline had I bought two Toyota Priuses for our comings and goings. In the 99 days of records we have so far, PG&E tells us we produced more energy than we consumed in 82 of those days, and in the rare occasion where we’ve tapped the grid, it hasn’t been for much.

I use ChromeOS all day, with my Pixel at work, and the Acer 720 at home. My wife uses the 720p, and my kids love its touch screen for their educational sites. The Verge says, "Next time you buy a cheap laptop, look long and hard at Chrome OS."

NY Times: Chromebooks Win Buyers Ready to Live in the Cloud
#chromebooks   #chromeos

Posting this from my Acer 720... :) "Five years ago, Google created a lightweight computer operating system, Chrome OS, that behaved like a web browser. The search king also persuaded a short list of computer makers to use the new operating system in inexpensive and easy-to-use laptops — Chromebooks. At the time, critics scoffed that the lightweight machines were more toys than computers. But no one is laughing now."

Happy Mothers Day to +Terrie Gray (and her 50,000 Followers)

Almost four decades ago, I came into the world two months early. I was just over four pounds, and as my dad tells the story, I had a 50 percent chance of being physically disabled and 50 percent chance of being mentally delayed. As he often puts it, they haven't figured out which one it's going to be yet. Some family members wouldn't visit me in the hospital because they didn't want to get attached.

But I always had at least one supporter - my mom, who was there next to me during all the surgeries and our lean times, and as I grew, became my tag team partner on education, trivia, TV and technology. Where some kids were shoved off to school by their parents, I often had my mom working on the same campus. When my 2nd grade teacher took maternity leave, it was my mom who was the sub.

Where some kids were shoved off to school by their parents, I often had my mom working on the same campus. When my 2nd grade teacher took maternity leave, it was my mom who was the sub. When in 6th grade, we had an elective to learn basic computing, it was my mom who was teaching.

And somehow she managed to raise five kids, have a full time job, get a master's degree, and later even a doctorate, while entertaining her many hobbies, from music to scuba diving and photography - which is how many of you know her, with her daily posts and rapidly growing audience. She swears her 50,000 followers will continue to grow and pass my stats, and I don't doubt it - because she's focused and stubborn, just like me.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!___

I just moved +Vic Gundotra to my "Friends" circle.

Thanks for helping have such a significant impact on my move to +Android and being part of the beta team for Google+ with me, sir.

And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....
+Vic Gundotra

Why +Nest Protect Claiming An Emergency Gave Me Comfort
/via +louisgray.com 

This morning, my Nexus 5 chirped with a notification I hadn't seen before. While I was at the office, my Nest application was telling me, in no uncertain terms, that there was an Emergency in the kitchen at home. There was smoke, and the alarm from our Nest Protect smoke alarm was sounding. I called home quickly, and my wife told me, embarrassed, there was simply a small issue with the microwave, and all was fine. And that's exactly what was supposed to happen.

Tracking all my activities, from +Fitbit to my Nest thermostat, gives me data I can take action on. You can check out Automatic at www.automatic.com. Works with Android and iOS.

#chrome   #chromeos   #chromebook  

I haven't yet gotten my hands on the new Dell Chromebooks, but the review has me definitely curious. As +The Verge says, "anyone can order the Chromebook 11 for $299 from Dell’s website today — and get possibly the best Chromebook ever made."

And if you're someone who, unlike me, has doubts about ChromeOS, they add, "Chrome OS has matured enough to be a suitable computing platform for the vast majority of things people do with their computers... there’s little I can’t do with the Chromebook."

There's a lot of talk these days about acquisitions, IPOs and who made what. But a lot of people work hard and never strike it rich, while others make money outside of the limelight. Are we doing ourselves favors by focusing on finance as much as we do products?

I'm at the airport with my three year old and five year old boys - taking them on a three day whirlwind trip to Phoenix to see the +Oakland Athletics at Spring Training.

We've been looking forward to this trip all year, and the boys are so excited. They're currently watching planes take off and land. In an hour, Braden will be on the first plane ride of his life, and by evening, he will be out of California for the first time.

Speaking of firsts, the A's have won two straight division titles. The quest for more starts soon.
