A couple days ago I received my welcome package from Google. The welcome package included a pen and a notepad that has stickers.
Since my last update I got the repo setup and started working on the specifications. I have been emailing with my mentors to work out the specs.
You can view the git repo.
To keep up to date on my progress, you can either read this blog, or you can read the soc-corrdination mailing list once coding starts on the 19th.
