Google’s ‘Cool Kids’ Matt Cutts, Ben Gomes, and Amit Singhal Talk in Public

Estimated reading time: 0 minutes, 50 seconds

During my holiday I was reading the book “In the Plex” by Steven Levy. You really feel you are getting an inside into the Google offices when you read that book (I will review it later). In the book Levy mentiones the office of Matt Cutts, Ben Gomes, and Amit Singhal as being an office which by Googlers is called the “cool kids’ office”. Now to be honest, if you would tell that to somebody outside of the industry and show that person a picture of the three, they probably wouldn’t believe it. But online, Search and Google in particular is a world of its own. Here the ‘cool kids’ are those who know the most.

The Churchill Club, a Silicon Valley business and technology forum, got the three to talk their stuff not in the offices at Google, but on stage. Moderated by Danny Sullivan they talked for almost 1,5 hours about a lot of ‘cool’ stuff. If you have the time, you should really watch this.
