Shorter Aaron Swartz:

<em>I'm so sick of Google! I sent them my resume like...8,000 times and they never even called me back! Well, except for that one time when they asked me my GPA. And my SAT. But those art history classes were tough! And I don't test well! Damn you Google! So, are you like...hiring, or anything?</em>

sound like they're going through the Microsoft "i'm fully vested, f**k you" phase. (the infamous "IFVFU" t shirts...)

Well, Aaron is being lamblasted by a lot of Googlers and observers. I have to say his remark about the SpaceShipOne replica is totally wrong. I was just there last week, and the replica looks just like the real thing. He probably hasn't ever seen the real one, so he didn't realize that SS1 looks more like a toy plane than a space ship.

I think I speak for all Googlers when I say that Aaron is a doody-head.

Nay, a *double* doody-head!

Plus – I'm telling...

What's a doodyhead? Can't find a translation...

doody-head = poo-head (to use the polite form)

Edit – i.e. urbandictionary.com/define.php ... or urbandictionary.com/define.php ...

It's like the worst thing you can be called by someone in 1st grade...

Sorry, just my attempt at humor...

a question: where is possible to buy the nice support for video in the picture?

Thanks for the props, Philipp. Peter, you're like the 900th person to say that. Which is weird, because Google offers me a job every time I visit.

Job offers, eh? Don't mistake "we should get you in here for an interview" with an actual offer. There's a world of difference.

Aaron, if you really want the pulse of Google, pay more attention to those "cynical hotshots" you dismissed so quickly. We're the ones busy eating at our desks and changing the world while the fresh-out-of-college kids in Mountain View complain about the selection of smoothies in the cafeterias.

We aren't nearly as interesting to blog about, though.

Everyday, after I get up. I remind me how much I like Kids?
Googler very very very very very lucky!!! Kids can have full free dreaming.
So Google can be a great company.
