  • "Today on US @Google and @YouTube homepages we share our support for racial equality in solidarity with the Black community and in memory of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery & others who don’t have a voice. For those feeling grief, anger, sadness and fear, you are not alone." - @sundarpichai
  • “Interviewing at Google is not as scary as we might think. Everyone is super friendly and they definitely want you to succeed. Most of the time interviewers do not expect you to create the most optimal solution from the beginning, they know that everything is a process of iteration, improvement, and optimization.”⁣

  • Googlers on our consumer hardware team used their design expertise and labs (with proper safety protocols for essential workers) to rapidly produce face shields.⁣
⁣
“We listened to doctors and nurses about their needs, looked at existing shields and read everything we could find on the subject,” says Dan Kaufman, senior director of engineering for the ATAP (Advanced Technology and Projects) team and project lead. “Then we started making them and iterated until we got something we could produce safely, quickly, inexpensively that hospital workers could use."⁣

One example of problem-solving in action: After hitting a road bump around the plastic supply, the team thought “salads!” and sourced hard-to-come-by plastic (which is 100% post-consumer recycled) from a supplier that manufactures salad bowls for the Google cafes.⁣
⁣
On April 23, the Valley Medical Center Foundation (@vmc_foundation) announced that they received more than 49,000 face shields from Google. They’ll be deployed at hospitals, clinics, skilled nursing facilities and other high-risk environments throughout Santa Clara County in California. ⁣
⁣
The instructions for the shields are now public, with the hopes that manufacturers can scale the efforts. Head to our bio link to check out the design on GitHub. #lifeatgoogle⁣
  • A look inside the campus network room in our Council Bluffs, Iowa data center 👀, where routers and switches allow our data centers to talk to each other. The fiber optic networks connecting our sites can run at speeds that are more than 200,000 times faster than a typical home Internet connection!
