Neither do I but if you go by the number of people with this logo by their name:
(Left unlinked on purpose, I know what this forum would do to it :P)

then in the top 1000 posters it's 9 (Of course there may be others with no logo/less than 5 posts)

Matt Cutts
Adam Lasnik
Pamela Fox
Mihai Parparita
Vanessa Fox
Chris DiBona
mark lucovsk
Gregor J. Rothfuss
Carl S

(Method: I searched through the source of ... for the logo)

Work is relative.

Thanks everyone, I never realized that all Googlers have this special logo. Thanks for the tip Mrrix32.

[put at-character here]drtimofey, not all... I took a quick glance and noticed "Anonymous Googler" & "JohnMu" don't have the logo. I'd bet there are others and I'm pretty sure at least one of the folks Mrrix32 listed no longer works for Google.

> "JohnMu" don't have the logo

JohnMu started participating here before he joined Google, so I didn't want to replace the icon he already had... however, I added a "Google"-style border around his icon. Similarly for Kevin Fox who participated here while he was still working at Google, but doesn't anymore...

And Philipp worked for a while as a Google Answers contractor.

We all work for Google because we are constantly advertising their products, for free...

That's a lot of work for Philipp, researching to see who does what;) Nice to learn though.

I believe Vanessa Fox left Google about a year ago.

[put at-character here]Gary, you're right. She left around June of 2007.
