Sorry, would love to write more, but completely beat after four hours of sleep and an intense day learning about the latest Google projects. Until I'm able to write a wrap up, check out my photos and audio from the keynote and some of the sessions. (Note—the audio quality might be poor. These are unedited recordings made from the audience using an .mp3 recorder)
