Google! My Shyamalan moment delayed.

I am a Google employee.

I have this great idea for a movie remake I'd like to direct. A 70s French horror film. Whose title I will not mention in case you buy a camera before I do.

But I'm a Google employee. A User Interface Engineer. My Shyamalan moment will have to wait.

At first thought: I'll open up comments on this site for posts relating to the parts of Google UI development that I can discuss. (There will be parts I can't discuss, please understand that it's only because we haven't built a napkin-to-HTML translator.)

I liked very much when Dave Hyatt opened his site up to comments and constructive criticism when he began work on WebCore for Safari. Please let me know if those things are helpful. If I have time, I'll try and use these discussions as help in understanding some of the UI decisions we make at The Big G.

My new teammates are funny and brilliant. Just like yours. They told me I could sit next to them right after I make a good show at the annual Snipe Hunt. I think they really like me...*

*The new multi-colored tattoo I will be required to obtain will include the following names: biz, ev, jason, steve, jason, eric, and jason. The twist? The tattoo will be on my heart. Match that, Elijah, Sean, and...those other guys!

Welcome! I'm but a wee UI intern, but I bat for both teams. I do UI for Google-the-not-blogger-part but I participate in infinite jest with Ev, Jason, and company and brainstorm about blogger users with Jason Two for fun. Remember -- 2nd floor kitchenette has the junk food.
