Hey everyone! We're all seated here and ready to get working. Russell is on words, Andrew is on photos. Let's do this!
Standard live event stuff so far. Bix screen in front with Google's color dots doing their thing. Loud music. Cups of coffee everywhere. We're about 35 minutes from starting!
Daniel Bader may or may not be joining us from the Toronto satellite event. Here's hoping!
The upstairs demo area has some Live Cases out, and they sure look like they're for Pixels!
The same style of Live Cases that are available for the Nexus 6P and 5X now. Upload your own photo and Google makes a case out of it!
Whoever was responsible for the Google Dots animation on screen today did an amazing job. They are downright memorizing.
I'm here in Toronto at a Canadian satellite event, featuring Rick Mercer and moose.

Jerry, Harish and I are running things from back home :)

Russell will be providing some play-by-play analysis, and I'll be taking photos!
Decent-sized crowd here. Not gigantic, but a full room!
