It’s late, but I wanted to point out this interview with Anurag Acharya. Anurag is one those unsung heroes that made a huge difference in the early days of Google. After that, he took a break to do something that he loved, and that was Google Scholar.
Also mad props to Avichal Garg, a product manager at Google who was recently named one of America’s Best Young Entrepreneurs. I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Avichal on several projects, and he’s a top-notch guy. Whether they’re veterans or newer Googlers, I’m grateful for the caliber of people I get to work with every day.
Sometimes it’s nice to take a step back to see the big picture, too. First, Steve Bryant does a review of 2006 for Google. That’s some serious content. And it reminded me of Jaimie Sirovich’s post giving 21 tips from the first year of this blog. Good stuff, Jaimie; thanks for saving me the trouble of summarizing.
