Congrats! Anyways look out, don't let them get you for cheap just because you are 16 and they arrange a date with Marissa! Besides there is much more out there than just Google, I know there is, I am twice as old, but now that I know I wish I could be 16 once again to experience it.

Haha Awesome Caleb...and I thought you were just a bored teen.....and ya, I'm still jealous about you getting to go to Google's Campus....And you never even told me about the miniture golf, shesh.

:) Well, it was a really fun experience. I got a tour of the campus from Jessica (the one who posted the blog entry). It's a very, very nice campus. There really are beanbags, massage chairs, and lots of free drinks! I got to see the search scroller and the rotating globe that shows search queries as spikes in the lobby.

Next I gave a presentation to the personalized homepage team about the GPH and directory based on a focus group I had at my school. I got to meet all the team members, as well as talk to Mihai Parparita (of persistent.info/) via a webcam (he works in the New York office) and a member of the Gmail team, Mike Sego.

I had lunch in the Google cafeteria (it was VERY tasty). I got to shake hands with both Larry and Sergey, as well as Eric Schmidt, and, of course, Marissa Mayer. Then I went to play glow in the dark mini golf with a few of the GPH team members at "Putting Edge".

Sell the badge on eBay :)
congrats Caleb, and where are your fotos?

we weren't allowed to take pictures as part of the NDA. The badge was actually pretty cool, you type in your name and who you're there to meet and sign the NDA (with an electronic pad) and it prints the badge on a Dymo machine.

Well done Caleb! Somehow, I don't expect to get invited to the Googleplex given my track record with them – especially now Matt's referred to it as an "attack" against them!

Caleb: Nice pic!
  
Hopefully, I'll be visiting Googleplex in a couple of weeks as a part of research to my book :-) Can't wait...

PS: Visiting {HP,IBM}plex does not request to sign NDA, but first thing you see is "NO CAMERAS" sign :>
