Philipp Lenssen over at Google Blogoscoped spotted a new Videos From The Googleplex area where Google is sharing its own in-house video content with the world. Oddly, a post on the Google Blog today mentions some of the individual videos there but not the overall area itself.
What will you find? Authors who've spoken at Google are now posted, such as the presentation that John Battelle gave that we mentioned before or a recent one from Yahoo alum Seth Godin. Last year's Google Factory Tour is also posted, along with other clips you'll find on this related page.
I like the Google Recruiting Video. It's not new, but it is very inspiring, so much so that I have a feeling many companies will soon create their own recruiting videos and have them hosted at Google Video.
Jen Fitzpatrick, Engineering Director at Google is the narrator of this video, she conducts interviews with different 'Googlers' (Google employees) asking specific questions about the benefits at working at Google. Here is the abstract from the Google Recruiting Video.
I've represented Google at many events for women in engineering, and I'm always asked the same thing: "What's it like to work there?" I certainly don't mind discussing the subject, but I often think it would be great if more people could see it for themselves. Well, now you can. We invite you to take a sneak peek inside Google and hear straight from some of our female engineers what life here is really like.
Of course, our goal of recruiting as many gifted female engineers as we can also means encouraging young women who are still in school. So I'd like to issue a hearty congrats to the winners of this year's Anita Borg scholarships.
What won't you find in the collection of video from Google? Apparently not the Google commercial played to Kansas City Royals fans that Danny found Google had put up itself earlier this year. It's now gone.
Larry Page's CES keynote is at Google Video here, but that's not been associated with the Videos From The Googleplex page.
