>I don’t want to make a big deal about it, but this past Monday I got a private tour of the Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California.  I’ll be signing autographs behind the KFC between 3-4pm later on this afternoon.  But until then, I will post a couple of pictures that I snuck.

First off, the building and the campus is as cool as you think it is.  There are blue bikes all over the place that you can just hop on and ride to another building, there is a laundromat, 12 different places to eat, a juice bar and swimming pools.  Oh and did I mention that it is all free for employees!!!!
Google also has this 150 foot rule, where you are never allowed being further than 150 feet from food.  That is why they have fully stocked micro-kitchens on every floor.  There was also something called Thirsty Thursday’s.  They didn’t go into great detail, but I was left to assume a lot of alcohol was involved.

They also had the Google Holodeck.  Which is basically a way of seeing google earth and street view in 360 degrees.  The screens go all around you and it’s amazing rush to feel yourself virtually rushing through the streets of San Francisco or NYC.  Here is al little video demonstration.

And lastly, I got a little gift.  Which I will now be adorning each and every single day of life.  What do you think?  It’s me n’est-pas?
