Goooooogle

Yesterday was possibly the slowest work day yet. It was quite unbelievably boring. Lunch came and slowly rolled by and after what felt like hours and hours, I look up at the clock to see that it was only 2:30. I don’t know what it was exactly, but it felt like that day would never end.

After work, I went to a Google information session. It was just a guy standing on a stage talking about random stuff Google. It wasn’t all that informative and I only caught the latter bit of it. I did manage to catch all of the Q&A. I actually got to cram a question in there, about the municipal wireless initiative Google has been taking. Generally the answers to questions were pretty uneventful as well. Any really technical question I could have asked would’ve sounded dumb as can be. Any financial inquiries would’ve been quickly shut down or dodged. The presenter was clearly a well-versed PR person here to generate hubbub. I have to admit, he was a pretty cheeky guy. I chuckled a couple times at least. And the hubbub was definitely there. The placed was pretty much filled, so you’re talking about, oh 300-400 people I’d say, if not more. Everyone was clearly enthralled by the big Google signs everywhere. I even managed to take a few shots.

  1. I’ve been thinking about how to get a job with Google, it seems pretty prime, eh…
    Except I’m so technologically incompetent they wouldn’t want me. But I’ll figure out a way.

  2. Maybe they could hire you as a normal, non-technical user to provide them feedback 24/7 on their products..? 🙂
