Does this mean you cannot ever again post articles on Google's uses of technology? Read your NDA carefully.

Interesting how your article on Chrome suddenly triggered their interest.

Start your own team, your own company, and let Google purchase it. Google's technology is not what keeps them on top. They are merely the most popular choice and that is their value.

It's often eaiser to hire or acquire your competitors, or potential competitors, than to compete with them. While they may have hired many briliant yougn coders, these coders can leave anytime.

Interviews are not so much a test of intelligence but are to see if you will be a good team player, and are likeable. Or, to use the buzzwords, a "good fit".

I think you probably know more than many coders working at Google. Because you are even more free than they are to do what you want.

Your blog is one of the best I've seen on the old UNIX tools.

And you are not afraid to think for yourself.
