The first issue of our volume of the William & Mary Law Review is hot off the presses! Nice to finally have the first tangible product of our staff and editors’ hard work.
Tomorrow marks the beginning of Google I/O, the company’s annual developer conference. There are usually a series of significant announcements during the keynotes each day. Rumors for this year include a possible Nexus tablet. I was lucky to get to go twice while I worked at Google — it’s a pretty cool event.
Google has this new liveblog tool that will stream video and announcements. I’m embedding it here.
I can’t stop watching this video.[youtube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFzXaFbxDcM]
It’s all the more epic because it was made by PBS.
Some cool innovation — apparently from Disney Research? — around touch technology. Pretty rad.
Adventures in personal metrics. Here some interesting stats on my email habits since May 2007 — five years ago next week, when I graduated from college and first started using Gmail full-time.
~22,000 conversations. I started 15% of them and replied to 17% of the rest. 4,011 different people sent me emails, and a surprising 78% of those were sent directly to me rather than to a mailing list.
(Note: although I wasn’t originally, I have become more judicious about actually deleting emails that don’t need to be archived, like promotional emails or newsletters. So I think some of these numbers may be skewed).
I like that my responses to people are shorter and quicker than their responses to me. :)
