And? :)

Not to joke, but something like 11-12% of people in the U.S. work (or have worked) for the government, so it makes sense to try to sell Google Search Appliances not only to businesses, but to the government too. But that does *not* imply anything other than we want to sell search appliances to people who can use them.

Hey, small world :-) :

"Spooks on board at Google

Matt Cutts, a software engineer at Google since January 2000, used to work for the National Security Agency and had a top-secret clearance. Google would like to hire more like him. Can you trust Google with a database of all the search terms you've ever used?"

Matt worked there as part of a college intern program back in they day when he was geeking it up and interested on spiders.

Give it a rest.

A while back they were recruiting for the DC Sales office. It makes sense for them to try to sell to the government. That is where the fixed big money, long term contracts are.

It gets better:

Prior to joining Google, Rob was the Director of Technology Assessment at In-Q-Tel, the strategic private equity firm of the US Intelligence Community.

It's not as exciting as it sounds, Daniel. Rob wasn't "the" director of technology assessment for In-Q-Tel, he was "a" directory of technology assessment in a specific area.
