Happy 20th Birthday Google (September 4, 1998). I was a part of Keyhole and the launch of Google Maps and Google Earth and wrote a book about it. AMA.
I have spent 25 years in tech marketing, including as Marketing Director for Keyhole Inc., which was bought by Google in 2004 and became the foundation of Google Maps and Google Earth. I was the marketing lead for Google Maps and Google Earth during the launch of those services in 2005, and I worked at Google for 11 years. I am now VP of Marketing for Google spinout game company Niantic (Ingress, Pokémon GO, Harry Potter Wizards Unite) and I am responsible for all of Niantic's live events. I wrote a book about my experience called Never Lost Again.
Thanks everyone for participating today!
