Google's boldly going where no one has gone before....in search of engineers at the 5th Annual Official Star Trek Convention next week in Las Vegas. Google's going to have a booth and presence at the event, I'm told by a friend who knows. Apparently, many of Google's engineers already attend Trek conventions, so it's fertile recruiting ground. So far, I see nothing about Google on the convention site. But Google Operating System noted yesterday how Google SketchUp is already doing a cross-promotion.
Have fun at the con, anyone who's going. Wish it were me! Of course, going to WorldCon in LA (ahem, actually Anaheim in beautiful Orange County) later this month would be nice. My first and only one was in Anaheim back in 1984. Too long, too long. Hey, how about Battlestar Galactica Con? Heck, I'd be happy with Xena Con (though Gabrielle Con would be better).
Postscript: Google's got a post up now about the recruitment drive there.
