Every new Googler (Noogler) is given a beanie hat with a propeller on top. It is a tradition almost as old as the company.
However, to be considered one of the cool kids, one needs to retrofit the propeller to be motorized. Thao and I performed the required surgery to my old Noogler hat. A tiny motor, some batteries, and a button.
Just in time for Quynh to wear it at orientation today. My wife is now a co-worker.
Quynh had increasing difficulties with Facebook's ethics (or lack thereof). This week she resigned to join Google. As a family we try not to be evil.
