Do they have to work on Halloween day? I suppose it could be part of their 20% time ... ;)

By the way, how does 'spam' relates to Halloween .. Oo .. Spam is just as scary as ghosts and witches! :P

What is that "Trax" (sp?) program shown on one of the screens?

If I remember correctly, that's where they write codes or something like that, something to do with programming...

[put at-character here]Phillip: As far as I can read/see, he's using MS Excel (not google spreadsheets! :O), Mozilla Firefox, with the google toolbar (and a logged in user); google talk (it looks slightly different from the one I have, I don't know why); and that trax thing in front of all... I don't know what's that! But my guess is that is the system they use to handle cases/tickets. Like when you contact support, or something like that. It has a format similar to GMail's, with some adds. I can read the "check spelling" link at the top-right of the message area; From, To, Cc, Subject, and something else I guess it's attachments, but it seems to have two buttons (add/remove?).
At the bottom, Send, Save, Discard and a button I don't know what it is.
In the left side there is something long; and I can see a number (can't read it completly).
If you look over the monitor, there's a "play with origami" sign. Ok, it has nothing to do with the screen or the topic, but... it's there.

That's what I thought it was. Trax sounds like a "cooler" name for Trakken to me, which is what their support systems are built on.

Also, on his left monitor is the Google.com Google Apps version of Gmail which I think has a few more features based on what I saw in Paris while looking over someone's shoulder.

I attended Googleween as a makeshift map marker... you can play 'spot the marker' in some of the pics taken of people on stage, e.g.:

Oh, and on a related note – celebrate Halloween GMaps style: googlemapsapi.blogspot.com/200 ...

"Knoweldge Is Power" – I just saw this on top of Wikipedia, and I thought it makes perfect sense as Wikipedia motto, for many reasons.
