Visiting Google
Posted on 5-Oct-2005 12:51 by M Freitas. | Tags Filed under: Blog.



It's really sunny and hot in Santa Clara today, a perfect day to do some geek stuff, such as visiting the Google headquarters in Mountain View, California.

My main interest was meeting some of the folks behind the Google AdSense program. Kim, Julie and Jeff were really nice offering to show me some of the Google properties, and talking about the program, including some stuff I assume is covered by the NDA I had to sign when coming to the reception area.

I had a chance to spy on the cool displays showing in real-time the keywords users around the world are searching, and the rotating globe showing the density of searches per region and country - this was another cool feature. Lots of pets around and people having lunch outdoors.

Still impressed I managed to be received and be able to get some interesting views and answers to my questions. A very nice team, and a cool program.
