[Adding an xkcd cartoon to my last post made me remember that I had this leftover post that I never published.]
I’m ruthless in pruning my work email down to the essentials. In particular, I auto-archive emails about different speakers at Google. So many neat/fun speakers are always visiting Google that if I started going to all those cool lectures, I’d never get my regular work done.
I’m at peace with that choice, but it does mean that sometimes I find out about awesome speakers at Google by reading about them on an outside blog.
If you like xkcd, Ellen has a great post about Randall Monroe’s visit to Google.
