They call new Google employees Nooglers. That was what I was last week when I was down in Mountain View. It was a pretty exciting week. I went to some training classes and got my computers set up and such. I spent quite a bit of time working and hanging out with other Googlers. Everyone was super smart and down to earth. I learned a lot and had a great time.
At the end of the week I got my Noogler hat (propeller on top, of course) at a company wide friday event. I've been digging in this week back in Seattle. I'm hoping that I can get my first checkin in by thursday. My only job now is to write code and ship product. That is about all I can say too :)
