Party report: Rooftop lounge open house

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 at 1:08 PM



If you weren't at the open house for our Lively rooftop lounge, you really missed out. The turnout was good, and we were pleased to see new faces.



It wouldn't be a Google gathering without T-shirts. Those who attended received special Google Desktop T-shirts, which you can't get anywhere else.



We did a lot of brainstorming about gadgets and ways to improve Lively and Google Desktop. We also established a new favorite pastime: anvil dropping.



Here are some interesting snippets from the chat:
Lahiru:
well it would be really cool if we have some HTML render element
Bijoy:
Yes, a web browser control will do...
►Bijoy nods yes◄
►Sebastian is confused◄
me:
well, a subset of html might be okay?
Lahiru:
yes
►Lahiru nods yes◄
me:
<b><u>
Yannick:
wow guys slow it down


Yannick:
well, but how would you try them out in lively?
I think there should be some developer object
Benjamin:
I'd love to create an interactive arcade machine with a gadget as the game interface
Yannick:
just a simple 3d wall
►Benjamin is in love◄
Yannick:
where we can simply
me:
i very much agree
Yannick:
change the gadget in some local directory
and hit reload
Teo:
have you guys checked the jedi council room?
Please come out to the next gathering. We all had fun, and it was a great way to meet new friends (and anvil-dropping enemies).
