What has Jeff Nelson been doing lately?

Greetings. I am indeed lurking and occasionally get some time to try to catch up on my Quora feed. I've been dabbling in some other social networks (if it's fair to call Quora a social network) and try to have at least some activity every few days.

I don't know if the book is going to happen in the short term. It's a tremendous challenge trying to write a book that makes the engineering process sound interesting. There weren't any love triangles. No fist fights. I never once got into a car chase. It was mostly long days of getting into work, doing my job, then going home to do some more work on my Chromebook experiment. Possibly, the most interesting part for most people would be descriptions of the meetings with various executives, Larry Page, etc.

Other than that, the only drama was from the comedy of errors made by management, and I don't necessarily want to write a whole book about that. It would start to read like a super long exit letter or a rant, which is not what I want to write about and I'm not sure anyone would want to read. For now, I'm just planning to keep re-writing it until I find the right tone.

Aside from that, I've been continuing to pursue a machine learning startup that I'm not ready to talk about.
