Jen Does Google

Jen from is making me green from head to toe in envy as she talks about her personalized tour of the Googleplex after a meet and greet event at SES – at the end of the tour she ended up having a relaxed chat about Adsense and other topics with Larry and Sergey.

‘After the private behind-the-scenes tour, we ended up sitting outside a microkitchen chatting on some sofas. After sitting for a few hours chatting about anything and everything Google, who wandered down to join us at 1:30am but the original Google Guys themselves, Larry and Sergey. Larry stayed for about half an hour, while Sergey chatted with us for well over an hour.

Yes, AdSense was one of the many subjects discussed, but the entire conversation was off-the-record, so I can’t go into specifics. But it was definitely one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities!’

What a night – I’m most jealous – most jealous indeed. If only she could share that conversation.

Dave Naylor also writes of his perspective on SES and the intimate Googleplex tour.

    It was *definitely* one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities I never expected to happen.

  2. Dave says:

    What a tremendous opportunity that must have been. Its refreshing to hear that companies as large as google are still interested in the little people, and are willing to talk to people outside of the google family about the business.

    Good public relations at work there.

    I also just want to be able to type the letters in the correct order :-)

  5. Pity Jenstar didn’t record it in audio and published as podcast! That would be something – voice contains more information than text…
