So, there's this little company called 'Google,' you may have heard of it... they have a website.... and it's a really, really cool place to work. So cool, in fact, that they bring in Authors to speak to their employees.
From their site... "The Authors@Google program brings authors of all stripes to Google for informal talks centering on their recently published books. Through the program, we invite authors to our Mountain View headquarters as well as our New York, Santa Monica, Cambridge, Ann Arbor, and other offices, where Googlers are treated to readings of everything from serious literature and political analysis to pioneering science fiction and moving personal memoirs; past participants have ranged from novelist Salman Rushdie and economist Jeffrey Sachs to journalist Bob Woodward and U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain...."
Among those amazing authors... Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head and authors (Sam's written three books 'Brewing Up A Business,' 'Extreme Brewing,' and 'He Said Wine, She Said Beer'). Sam recently had the amazing opportunity to speak to the Googlers at the NYC office (other sites were all connected... apparently Google has some IT folks on staff). And because Google has another little website 'YouTube,' you can watch the entire event....
