Day 1

Google new hire orientation is at 8AM. Wait srsly? That’s about the time I’ve been going to sleep during this past week. Hope this is just a first day deal.

Update: Yeah, getting up early was well worth it. I felt like Po in Kung Fu Panda when he got dropped into the Sacred Hall of Warriors as I gawked at the various ammenities. And also felt equally unworthy as the warriors of the Furious Five coded kung fu circles around me. There is now a level zero.

I also learned that everything is confidential, and so since I love it here (despite being at level zero), I will not be talking about projects, plans, dates, or basically numbers in general. This leaves food, socialness, and Grey Shirt Day as topics for discussion.

For example, I have discovered a tool called TastyMeats which scores lunch menus from the various Google eateries and emails you which ones have the most meat that day. Excellent.
