Because people keep pointing me to this, I may as well refer all of you to it. Xooglers - "A gathering spot for ex-Googlers to reminisce and comment on the latest developments in search." Mostly it seems to be Google anecdotes and history.

The people who are doing this have left the company, and so obviously this isn't going to be up-to-the-minute stories. The company seems to have evolved a bit since they left (one of them left many years ago, so obviously he's out of date) - but evolved, not transformed or anything. Their stories are pretty similar to what the company's still like.

And just to forestall the inevitable, yes, I believe they are indeed ex-employees. It all rings pretty true and they know details that most people don't.

It's a good read. I recommend it.
