Once nice thing about working here, is it is very easy to convince people to come visit you for lunch. The famous Google lunch, free, and filled with smart people who love to chat. Who could want more? Today I had my ex-coworker Alexy come by. He had some photography tidbits, a cool Leica point and shoot, and plenty of "financial engineering" to talk about. Cool guy, he is currently ramping up to a PhD - good luck there.
Also he owns women.ru of all sites. Crazy guy.
