Seven Blog Posts in Three Days

Last week Barbara and I attended the annual Google I/O Developer's conference in Mountain View.  We've attended every year since the first one back in 2008 and were glad to continue the streak. As you may have noticed from my last few short posts here, I've been doing more writing over on Justia's Legal Marketing & Technology Blog this year than in years past and as such I proposed the idea of live blogging sessions at Google I/O this year.  My suggestion was readily approved and I set to work on planning which sessions I would Live Blog. In the end I Live Blogged 7  sessions over the course of the 3 day conference and wanted to make sure those that follow me on my personal blog knew about them.  Check out the list of sessions I ended up blogging, with links over to the individual live blog posts after the break.

Looking at Life from the Other Side of the Glass

It is hard to believe that it was just 1 year and 1 week ago, Google uploaded to its YouTube channel, a teaser video for a project they had been working out of from their top-secret "moonshot" [x] Labs called Project Glass. The project was ambitious, an augmented reality layer over your very life, answering questions before you even asked, and all around simplifying your life. 2 Months later at Google I/O 2012, Google staged a "demonstration" involving a blimp, skydivers, BMX Trick bikers and more to show off the device as what seemed like little more than a network connected GoPro camera.  They then asked Developers who are interested in getting an early look at the technology if they would be willing to fork over $1,500 for the chance to be one of the first non-Google employees with this whole new class of Technology. I and 2,000 other attendees happily stood in a long line to put down our commitment to try it out.  Then, months of agonizing waiting began.  Waiting for a future that was so close we could taste it.

Google I/O 2012 starts tomorrow morning

The next version of Android is officially Jelly BeansGoogle I/O is almost here, and the Google Developers have created a nifty widget for enabling the live stream of the video on your blog, as well as embedding my own Google+ stream as a Live Blog of sorts, so head on after the break for my live blog where I will post about the stream while it happens. In preparation for I/O, on the Google Developers Plus page, the Development team has now officially confirmed the name of the next version of Android will be "Jelly Beans."  The confirmation comes with a new statue on the Googleplex Lawn.
