Daily Photo – A Great Day at the Google HQ!
Wow that was a cool experience. Those guys and gals over there are super-nice. You never know… I guess maybe Google seems somewhat intimidating from the outside, but after I met guys like Cliff, Brian, and Chip — I felt right at home.
I gave an hour-long talk in one of their theaters there. It was super-packed and people were standing all around because seats were gone. We were graced with the presence of one Sara Jane Todd from @Peachpit to help out selling books – and we sold out! Also, my Brazilian friend Fabio, the editor of Abduzeedo was there too, so it was great to see him.
The Authors@Google (video link) program has a neat deal where they subsidize books, so Googlers don’t have to pay full price. I saw all kinds of cool stuff and took a lot of pics. I have to get most cleared with Google Corp Comms before I can release… but I nabbed shots of a spaceship, a new pseudo-holodeck, and more mysteries await! We even got to eat lunch there in the Google cafeteria, which had some of the most excellent food I’ve ever had in such a setting… they even have a small organic farm on the campus… well, I could go on and on… but I was very impressed and happy to meet so many enthusiastic people!
The video should be done in the next 2-3 weeks or so. We’ve got good-man Brian at Google slaving away on editing the whole thing together!
