Sergey Brin (Google Founder) Makes an Android App


The jury is still out on whether rolling through the T-Mobile G1 Press Conference sporting roller blades was a cool thing to do or not…. errrr…. maybe not. Presenting a “revolutionary” product with a product popularized (and past its prime) a decade earlier seems to send a mixed message, does it not?

Nevermind that – I could hardly see the blades anyways. And I forgot about them altogether when he explained the first Android Application he ever made… it got a good laugh from me:

And by the way, I know a lot of people are “dissing” him because rollerblades are like, so 90’s, dude. But I appreciated the gesture. I think it was just Sergey being Sergey… he doesn’t care if they’re cool or not to YOU… he thinks they work just fine. I mean what did you expect… a hoverboard?

And by the way, if you’re a guy and you’ve ever worn “capris” then you have no right to talk. Absolutely no right to talk. I’m just sayin…

I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

  1. Ha, I thought it was fun. I guess I didn’t really care that they were on roller blades, to me I thought, they seem more grounded to reality and more open to have fun than to worry about if someone thinks their roller blades are uncool.
