5 Epic Selfies We Took at Google I/O 2016

Selfie Pa More!

We’re still here at the Google Campus in the US to cover the week long annual Google I/O conference. During our stay here we’ve had the pleasure to meet a lot of really great people from the media, tech industry, and of course Googlers. Since we’re Pinoy, we took a couple of selfies with some of them and we’d like to share them with you guys in this quick post.

Sundar Pichai, Google CEO

Sundar Pichai is without a doubt one of the biggest movers in the technology and digital industries in the world. He used to head Android and was eventually promoted to be the CEO of Google. He was the main speaker during the keynote address here at Google I/O. We had the opportunity to take this photo during the Day 1 concert (which featured Charli XCX and Kygo).

The selfie we had was even flashed on screen at the main stage after the performance of Charli XCX!

When I grow up (lol), I wanna be just like this guy. Richard is currently the Head of Google News but prior to that he was the CEO of Salon Media, an international digital publishing house. We had a fun 45-minute interview with him about Search, Content Discovery, and Mobile Content. We’ll publish that soon so watch out for it!

Brian and the rest of the Google Earth and Ocean teams are doing fantastic work putting the data Google has to good use. They can even potentially help in solving the territorial dispute that China has right now with the Philippines for the West Philippine Sea. Check out this vlog we uploaded about the topic.

And last, but definitely not the least, here are two 360-degree selfies taken using the Ricoh Theta 360 degree camera.
