The IETF shirt. I wasn't asked any questions about it, but I was ready to answer them. :-)

I get the impression that I get to pick. I was pointed at a publicly available list of the various google projects that are worked on in Kirkland.

In fact, I received confirmation in the interview that Google in general allows its employees a lot of leeway to switch groups if they want to.

So that's engineering then. The SRE organization is a bit separate, and while transition does happen, it's a little more formal (in both directions).

That's really cool! I'm glad for you.

Alas, yet another interesting brain gets borged. :) It gets a little frustrating to continually have the conversation go "oops, I don't know if I can talk about that" when talking to G'ers.

That's one thing that kind of worries me. The friend who has done the most inside google to advocate them hiring me partly wants me to work there so he can talk to me about what he's doing. :-/

The other place I'm really interested in is The Technical Committee, basically an organization overseeing the Microsoft antitrust stuff. I need to poke the people who are putting me in for a position there and see what's up.
