Back From Silicon Valley!

All I can say is “Wow, what an experience.” After an amazing time at AngelHack we are now back in LA and with just enough time to spare to fit in a blog post before the clock strikes 12 and I miss my Friday post!

Yesterday was amazing and included some very cool things which I can’t publish on the blog right now, but as soon as I know what I can discuss I will happily share with all of you. This morning we woke-up and headed to Mountain View for some time at Google’s Corporate HQ. Since it’s late I thought I’d share a few highlights and then go a bit more in-depth in my weekend musings tomorrow.

In the image above you can see a very cool screen that Google has in their main lobby, what you see on the screen, scrolling by in realtime is actual user searches. I’m just assuming that they filtered all the x-rated searches out since I didn’t see any and I would imagine this would take the lobby from super cool to incredibly awkward.

All of the Android geeks that read my blog will appreciate the picture below that I took with my iPhone. Welcome to the Android building:

I thought it was pretty funny to see so many people (myself included) using iPhones to take a zillion pictures of the Android building. I’ve used an Android phone before and wasn’t a big fan, but the building and the statues at the Googleplex are pretty darn cool.

Of course you can’t really go to Google without doing one of these pictures right?

DomainGang did a hilarious rendition of this picture today, if you have’t read their post, you should definitely check it out now – Morgan Linton’s GPS Data Leaked.

Okay, it’s 11:54PM and I’ve been going non-stop since 7:00AM, I think it’s time to call it a night. More to come tomorrow in what will be an extra-special weekend musings.

    Glad you liked the spoof post, Morgan 🙂 It seems that you had a great time in the Valley; definitely an amazing concentration of active tech companies call that place home.
