- That walrus still occupies a place of honor on my desk.
I started when the testing revolutions seemed mostly done (except that TAP didn't exist yet), although maybe the fact that I was in the testing group gave me a skewed view of engineering in general. I for one appreciate the way you've helped place that whole transition in a historical context. So, thanks for writing that series!Oct 27, 2012
- Won Chun+1I can't image anyone who knew your work at Google could impugn you. When I was a noogler, your generous and welcoming spirit taught me the best of Google culture at a time in my life when I needed to find something to be optimistic for.

- Your posts had more details in them than I would have expected, but I'd say well written and overall it's good they're online - especially the positive stuff. Thanks, dude.
When you get your music figured out, please come to campus and play for us. Just gimp'd this for you: http://i.imgur.com/quoIa.png. "For engineers, every unittest is a performance. For musicians, ..." well, please have fun!Nov 10, 2012
