It helps to be mindful of what level of detail to answer with. Most people don't need to know all the technical details.

To a stranger at a party: "I work at Google making Chromebooks."
To a techie: "I work on the firmware-testing framework for ChromeOS."
To a teammate: "I'm working on migrating the firmware-testing framework from Autotest to Tast."
To my private file: "I'm exploring ways to extract the mode-switcher from Autotest, hopefully into a standalone executable. Right now I'm hoping I can leverage the existing dut_control command, but it depends on what servo interfaces I need."
