Get your Google fix at Xooglers
We're probably among the last to mention this, but we're really enjoying reading Xooglers, the new blog by Doug Edwards, the former Google marketing and brand director who's recalling his five years inside the Googleplex. The blog is just a week old, but Edwards (with help from another ex-Googler) is keeping up a steady pace with crisp and engaging writing. Hard to believe, but this is perhaps the first ex-Googler blog that's actually offering some insight into how the company operates. (Edwards, by the way, was a brand manager for the Mercury News. We saw him cruising the halls a lot before he joined Google, but never got to know him personally.)

Google's quirks come from the top...and then Google Fast
Ok, we've decided to declare a Google fast for one week -- but, only after this: The news about Google's quirks begins to spill. Google has been pretty tight-lipped about its relationships with bankers and VCs, including the whole IPO process last year...

Very good! Thinking of offering ex-Google people to grow the Quintura brand. Quintura has a next generation search technology and will launch online search services soon. Quintura offers a better search compared to any search player.
Interesting, I would have thought they would be under a confidentiality agreement.
It is indeed, a well written, insightful, frank and entertaining serialized blog.
Hard to believe, someone that accomplished, was asked during the job interview and after the hiring, for his GPA and SAT scores respectively. :LOL
