I just got an email from an HR person at Google. It was really personalized, not just a form letter, saying that I might fit in well with their Server Engineering team. And from the description of the job, I think I would. I had to tell him that I didn’t know where I’d be a year from now, but I might contact him in March.
Oh, even better, he told me how he came across me: my goddamn contributions to fucking Wikipedia.
