Google job applicants must have varsity letter in moral gymnastics

Google’s known for its exacting hiring requirements, which include a degree from a top-notch university and a stratospheric GPA. But Page and Brin also have a preference for hiring Burning Man attendees…

Apparently Larry Page and Sergey Brin spent last week headhunting at Burning Man, the counterculture/ geek-fest out in Nevada. Free PR note: If you run a company that has gone spread-eagle to the incredibly repressive Chinese government, probably better not to have the phrase “Burning Man” any where near you.

Further proof of Google’s cluelessness can be found in a letter they recently sent off to media orgs telling them to not to use “google” as a verb. You can piss in the ocean all you want, but the tide is still going to come in. Word to the wise: Don’t try to teach a pig to sing. All it does is waste your time and irritates the pig.
