[FoRK] busy, busy, busy!

Just by trying to eat today at Google, I ran into two folks I used to 
work with. One was the database guru at Nuasis (a startup I contracted 
for) who ended up snared by the Motorola acquisition, and one was a 
fellow CMU graduate student who went on to DEC-SRL (much more 
prestigious than Microsoft!) and has continued doing hardware and 
operating systems and has ended up in the Chrome OS group.

I may have mentioned that my current boss was a member of the V group at 
Stanford (funding/publishing competitor with Mach) and also worked with 
Chorus (ibid).

I'm realizing I have no idea how many people I know currently work at 
Google. I guess I'll have to eat more to find out.

And for every person I meet who I didn't realize worked at Google, I 
learn about another person I know who *used* to work at Google.

No wonder the traffic is so f*ing bad right around Google. I'm saving up 
for a helicopter... or maybe a boat?
