    All IBMers send their resume, please

    It's steven.grant AT (Or stevengrant AT, I don't know). Be prepared for some basic computer science quizzes about sorting, histogramms, complexity of that, matrix mult, bitcounting. All most efficiently, of course.

    Almost Sligo

    In 2003 I had an informal lunchtime chat with a Googler who was heading off to Ireland along with some others on a quick tour of the country hosted by some Irish govt development people. He was curious as to why they wanted him to visit places called "Sligo" and "Galway" when he'd only ever heard of Dublin. I explained to him there was a policy of trying to sucker companies into moving out of Dublin and into the arse-end of nowhere in the name of "decentralisation". I had to use equivalencies such as "Ozarks" and "Cajuns" so he could understand what kind of deal they were trying to set up with Google. Needless to say, Dublin won out.

Said concerts piss off academics in otherwise quiet Palo Alto next door who teach future Googlers at Stanford. Nothing to see here folks move along to, er, Cupertino?
