as one who got one of these (not the sorry, I thought you were a Red Hat
employee) but the original recruiting probe from 'Ravi' - I didn't know
how much energy and thought went into the selection process that 'Ravi'
employed. My guess is that Google will somehow appreciate his initiative
and doesn't concern themselves with the mechanics unless it somehow
reflects poorly upon Google themselves.

Of course I did the the smart thing with my copy...I forwarded to one of
my better customers and suggested that Google wanted me for the purposes
of implied extortion for more money  ;-)

They probably are hiring - he's obviously just someone with an idea of
how to find Linux sysadmins in numbers.

As for sipping cocktails in Zurich...do you need Google to get you
there?
