    A different Google employee named Eric Schmidt is doing this demo.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:20:45 PM
    I expect this to become a meme in 3... 2...

  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:21:15 PM
    Big applause for Eric Schmidt... and then a bit of confusion as everyone realizes it isn't THAT Eric Schmidt.

    Urz has had a costume change, now wearing a red soccer shirt

  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:22:56 PM
    The demo we're getting is some code to analyze a stream of tweets relating to the World Cup.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:23:33 PM
    Basically, Google's showing that their programming language is pretty cool, too, likely thinking of Apple's to-do surrounding its new programming language.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:23:52 PM
    We're seeing a data visualization tool that shows the tweets going through a variety of algorithms to identify which team the tweet is about and add metrics, etc.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:24:31 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:24:38 PM
    Okay, we're now seeing a visualization of that data, quite sophisticated given the limited code -- which must be more than the few lines we saw.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:25:02 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:25:20 PM
    The algorithms are also attempting to track the sentiment about a given team, showing positive and negative swings based on a botched call from the refs.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:25:45 PM
    Basically, we're seeing how easy it is to build cloud apps, how easy it is to test and refine them, and of course deploy them to the world.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:25:47 PM
    Urz is back up.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:25:59 PM
    Ah, he's wearing a Swiss shirt.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:26:03 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:26:37 PM
    Cloudflow does for entire pipelines what MapReduce did for single flows
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:26:50 PM
    "We try to make your life easier as a developer. More productive, while giving you the best price and best performance of any cloud."
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:27:08 PM
    And that's all for the cloud! Time for Google Play.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:27:20 PM
    Ellie Powers, Google Play PM is up
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:27:45 PM
    Talking about cross-platform tools.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:27:51 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:28:26 PM
    She's going to talk about developing apps, distributing them, and how to make money.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:28:36 PM
    Appurify "is joining" Google, says Powers.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:28:45 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:28:48 PM
    For the record, Ellie is wearing an LG G Watch as well.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:28:59 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:29:08 PM
    Not sure what that means.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:29:21 PM
    Whether they're just partners or were bought.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:29:32 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:29:49 PM
    But they're going to help app makers do cross-platform testing, global device support, and connectivity simulations, Powers says.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:30:08 PM
    Appurify will continue to be cross-platform on iOS and Android, and available as a freemium service.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:30:17 PM
    Sounds like they bought them...
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:30:29 PM
    Announcing platform preview of Google Fit.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:30:49 PM
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:31:21 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:31:39 PM
    Another platform to unify fitness data, much like Apple's HealthKit recently announced at WWDC. Unification of all these disparate sources of data is going to be a key piece of functionality this year.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 6:31:46 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 6:32:03 PM
    Google Fit APIs allow apps to share your fitness activity, but only with your explicit permission
