Yesterday was again time for the yearly Google Dance event at the Google headquarters in Mountain View, California, with people from the Search Engine Strategies conference being invited over.
Colin Colehour took some pics for us from the scene (note some pics are cropped & brightness/ contrast-adjusted, the zoomed versions are the original).
I was able to take about 35 pictures at the event. Once I registered, they had one of the Google Communication Staff escort me around the event. I was told I SHOULD NOT take any pics that might contain people’s faces. So a lot of my pics are of signs or backs of people head. My escort was really friendly, a recent grad that had only been at Google for about 3 months. I was able to take pics of all of the different areas that were setup at the Googleplex. I only stayed about an hour because I was exhausted from a long work day. The event was PACKED!!! Most of the people I saw in the first half hour were Google Employees, Contractors and Interns. The conference invitees showed up about 30 to 35 minutes into the event.

Google has a garden next to their patio area. The garden’s sign reads “The Growing Connection - Cultivating Food, Connecting Minds, Harvesting Hope”
[Update: Disclosure – Colin worked as a contractor for the Google Partner Solutions organization for 1 year; at the time of him writing this post he already did not work there, and we also originally disclosed this relation in Colin’s first blog post. Just figured it is worth it to repeat it in his posts. -Philipp]
