Google Effect

Eric, a good friend of ours recently went to work for Google. The lore had it that he was personally approved by The Larry Page. I have been working with him for over five years. Great guy! He is a Linux expert, very quite, efficient, and very organized. The perfect go-to guy. About 26 people RSVPed for the lunch at the Cheese Cake Factory (three times the typical attendance). In the end, over 30 people showed up for the lunch. Even people who ordinarily don’t go to these kind of social events showed up.

In all my seventeen years of working career, i never seen such a warm send-off. Is this really Eric’s charisma or did Google have something to do with it?

Maybe it’s the cheesecake…

Congrats, Eric!
