Bradley Horowitz

VP Product, Google+

I oversee Product Management for the Google+ Project.  Previously at Google I've led the product teams for GMail, Google Voice, Google Talk, Orkut, Google Docs, etc.Before joining Google, I founded and led Yahoo's advanced development division, which developed new products such as Yahoo! Pipes, and I drove the acquisition of products such as Flickr and MyBlogLog. Previously, I was Co-Founder and CTO of Virage, where I oversaw the technical direction of the company from its founding through its IPO and eventual acquisition by Autonomy. I've got a bachelor's degree in computer science from the University of Michigan, and a master's degree from the MIT Media Lab and was pursuing my Ph.D. there when I co-founded Virage.

About 8 weeks ago In a sometimes annual tradition, we drove to Brentwood yesterday with some family friends and went cherry picking.  We ended up with 8 lbs!  There were a zillion other families with the same idea, so lots of traffic and lines, though a fun time was had by all.  

What to do with 8 lbs of cherries?  Well we started by making a compote with our first pound...  Delicious on vanilla ice cream!

The Centennial Exposition of 1889 was organized by the French government to commemorate the French Revolution. Bridge engineer Gustave Eiffel’s 984-foot (300-meter) tower of open-lattice wrought iron was selected in a competition to erect a memorial at the exposition.

Twice as high as the dome of St. Peter’s in Rome or the Great Pyramid of Giza, nothing like it had ever been built before. This view was made about four months short of the tower’s completion.

Louis-Émile Durandelle photographed the tower from a low vantage point to emphasize its monumentality. The massive building barely visible in the far distance is dwarfed under the tower’s arches.

Incidentally, the tower’s innovative glass-cage elevators, engineered to ascend on a curve, were designed by the Otis Elevator Company of New York, the same company that designed the Getty Center’s diagonally ascending tram where this photo now resides.

About 3 weeks ago This is a picture of some of the people who built Google+, but they are not the ones who make it. Those of you reading this do. And I want to thank you all for spending time with us and making this place your own. We've got a lot of exciting things planned for the future and it's been a blast hanging out with you for the last three years.  

Whether you’re into star gazing, boy bands, or football: you’ve all made Google+ an amazing place to explore the things you love, with the people who love them too. To celebrate our community, create a post and tell us: who are your people on Plus?

Here are mine:

+Michael B. Stuart, +Robin Griggs Wood, and +Wesly Smith. These are some of my many people on Plus.

Three years ago today we started the Google+ project. Back then I took the occasional smartphone photo, but that was about it. It was folks like Michael, Robin and Wesly who inspired me to be creative with my pictures. And because of their encouraging +1s, tips, an
