Even more surprised to see no mention of this:
hmmm, aren't most bloggers free and open linkers?

Reference to the Poisoned Chalice scene in "The Princess Bride" (one of the best kids/adult movies ever! ;)

WebmasterWorld not mentioned? Hmmm! Maybe they're into reciprocal linking or better yet don't want to promote any particular forum or URL on their blog. ;)

He's like Lassie... they just put out ver 1.2 and don't tell anyone. So far it's seemed like just the one GoogleGuy; if he ever shows up again, I'll be looking closely to see if he gets p*ssed off in the same ways as before. That's how we'll know.
Imho, it's a bit shoddy him not recognizing his roots at WW. He could have at least alluded to it somehow.

I'm reasonably confident he would have liked to.

He put a very "human face" on Google and became one of my favorite members. Every week I see a new news story about someone suing Google, so I'm betting Google policies have changed out of a need to protect themselves.
Given a choice between a career I thoroughly enjoyed or doing something that conflicted with my employeer's policies (posting in or about a particular forum perhaps? ;) ), I'd choose the career. I think most of us would.
I was pleased to notice a post from GG made in the last day or two. He IS still lurking about! :)

I really doubt he would want to link here, most of the posts are pretty negative about google serps/index/ipo,etc...
Besides, maybe he already gave Brett his props with some of those illegal stock options!

Yeah, man. He's a cool guy and I meant no disrespect. It's good to hear that he is still lurking about, even if he's not posting often. Let's hope that Google still cares about having a "human face" as part of their future plans and that we see more of him.
(I don't believe for a moment that GG would try to fob things onto a new GG without telling us... we'd all know.)

Yes but he did mention he has made around 2,000 posts in forums; 2395 of those 2,000 have been here plus those in the huge update threads of 2003 which don't count.

I was wondering if the picture of the guy on the archived page is a picture of Googleguy.

More than likely, it was a political reason that prevented the link. But, yea, for the most part, bloggers will link to anything ;).
