While there are really great reasons why one should work at Google, Kevin puts it best..
why work for google? think about it. people are always searching for a better job. no matter how much you like a job at first you get sick of it after a while. unhappiness is caused by not having found what you’re searching for. if you get a job at google, your job is searching. once you dislike it, what are you going to do – go searching? no. you hate searching. so you don’t search, so you don’t get unhappy so therefore you stay happy. the perfect job.
Of course, there were replies to that..
<DoC> Well, you could also blog for a better job. Or mail for a better job with lots of capacity.
<paul> kevin: that’s your worst joke yet 🙂
<DoC> Or secret underground laser for a better job.
<kevin> paul: it makes perfect sense.
<DoC> Wait. That’s probably covered under my NDA. Look into this apparatus for a second, everyone.
<Minus1> kevin: i’m sorry… you are *really* reaching.
<kevin> DoC: ah yes, but you aren’t searching then are you?
* paul tries to recover from having read kevin’s google-job-searching joke
<pron> paul: was it a joke ?
* pron thinks kevin wants a google job
