IMHO, I guess that some people ambitions are to be the best programmers. In order to be the best, they aim to work, train and mentor with the best. They regard Google as one of those temples.

Would I consider the gruesome Google interview? Thanks but no thanks.

It would be nice if you left your e-mail address. Sometimes I want to send a private message, or just thank for the great comment. Having your e-mail really helps.
I will never ever spam you.
