well perhaps that explains it, as i have been carrying on an email conversation about non-technical small business and kids. google has always given me precise explanation so laughable workarounds can be executed, that mean turning your brain inside out when doing a new site, such as policing client's dead links, which might be at elementary school auctions where they might have donated an item, bribing friends to add links and google the new official site every day, etc. these things are easy enough for computer people, but if google wants to be even more ubiquitous, there are specific improvements that bring more people on board. i can see they probably already know i want to fix them.

hah. i hear confirmed again and again that 'larry' [yes, THE larry] looks at every resume. every one. any attempt to scoff at this to employees is met with a patronizing, saddened look that says, 'you don't know how it works in googleland'

this is true! about every six months google actually emails me, or calls me on the phone to get me to send my resume and then I hear zip. this is sad because finally have competency, will take suicide assignments, and at a thrifty price with less degrees than some of you.
