Google I/O – Part I – Google App Engine

This week I, as well as my Wife Barbara, and my co worker Dan, went to Google I/O. People who have read my blog for a while may remember that last year I attended Google Developer Day around this same time in San Jose. This year Google decided to expand from a single day to a whole two-day tech conference and move it to the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Continue reading “Google I/O – Part I – Google App Engine”

Google Developer Day 2007

The Main Stage

This thursday I went over to my second Tech Conference since moving to the San Francisco Bay area, the first being MacWorld back in January, this time, I went to the San Jose convention Center for the 2nd annual Google Developer Day. I must say I hope that Google’s CEO tells the Apple Board of Directors a thing or two about how to hold a Tech Conference.

Google Developer Day 2007 was fantastic fun, and Google made a lot of fantastic announcements just for developers, several of which I’m going to start implementing in my work at Justia.

Internet Fads

Anybody remember these? The Computer industry is just about the only industry in the universe where you can reminess about the “good ole days” of 1996. Seriously though, although the page is about the slowing fad of Flash Mobs, it gives a quick review of the past fads of the internet like the Dancing Baby, HampsterDance, and All Your Base Are Belong to Us.
All Your Base Are Belong To Us
Anyway, I actually saw that several days ago but i figured I should put a reference to it in my blog, so feel free to click the icons above to see a little peice of Internet History.
I was up working on upgrading and reinstalling a server all night last night, but finally got it just about ready to send to San Jose, as such I got to work very late today and when I got there I was feeling “blah”, I just didn’t want to do anything. What’s more, Harold was wanting to discuss how he thinks all churches are corrupt because they pay their pastors, no matter how much I tried to point out to him that being a pastor is a full time job and should be supported so that he could devote his time to serving the community instead of working a 2nd job just to survive, he disagrees, he seems to think that the tithes given at church should go towards supporting the community and somehow the financial needs of the church (like mortgage payments on the building and upkeeping and staff members and many other things that a church needs to function). Anyway I spent my time working on a few menial tasks like the ARIN IP requisition forms for our ISP we are starting up, and working on our classified advertisements for our employment ads).
Tonight I went over to the house of a member of my church’s youth group to work with him on the christmas play I wrote, we are weeding out the flaws in the script and getting ready to get started, was over there for a while and got a lot prepared, I think the Christmas Play is going to be awesome, when I’ve got more I might post the script online for anyone who cares to read it. Anyway, that’s all for now, talk to ya’ll later.
