Am I to understand GoogleGuy is Sergey or Larry? I usually get the impression you put the homepage for the site you own :)

I don't want to start trouble, maybe I'm just being silly but I have nothing better to do right at this moment and just noticed it while looking at his profile :) (assuming male because of "guy") I guess I'm just curious to know more about GoogleGuy and if Sergey or Larry would ever post here...

Hopefully I posted this in the right forum, I didn't want to get stoned to death by posting it in the Google News forum ;)

http://www.google.com/jobs/culture.html - He is the one in red on top left picture.

Did you notice that color-coded map of the US, second row on the right? I wonder what that's all about -electoral vote coverage so Google can take over the US in the next election?

just spotted this in another thread (quote from GG):

<I can confirm that Google has not and never will do pop-ups, at least as long as I work here.>

Has some sway then...

I noticed that comment, too. Either Googleguy is someone at, or near, the top at Google, or an intern with delusions of grandeur.

I also thought the writing style seemed very consistent, like the posts were all from the same person.

Hey!
Let's start to randomly quote the GG posts as Sergey or Larry posts, and see if he falls in the trap, answering as if nothing wrong happened :)

Brett

I take it from your statement way up the top of this thread, that you have some tangible evidence that googleguy does actually work for google in some capacity and isnt just some guy messing with our heads?

Could you elaborate on what kind of proof youve seen (ie would an email from name@google.com be enough to constitute "proof")?

JOAT :)

Lets try not and scare Sergei away... :)

The choice of words GG has used here, IMO are calculated and purposefully hinting to his identity. Be mature and professional about it and respect his concerns for remaining (at least partially) anonymous.

Brett Knows google guy works for google as:

1) I am sure he logs ips and can see a google ip logged in most of the time when googleguy posts.

This is easy to do and I would be shocked if brett hadn't done this.

2) Googleguy on several occasions has mentioned stuff only an inside would know - that later came true - such as the smiley face toolbar and anti pop up message.

"As far as proof goes Brett has confirmed thereby it is so."

Fair enough, Im willing to concede to that point! :)

But I would like to see some evidence, you know like changing water into wine, walking on water, etc.....

Who is GoogleGuy?

A programmer?
More guys from Google know this page? So the info he gives us must be approved by a highranking Google employee, or GoogleGuy himself is rather highranking...

I guess he is one of the 50 PhDs they have...

Or is he one of the Google founders?

Someone from Google. Beyond that, best not to speculate.

Very cloak and dagger :).

Fun to speculate sometimes

I will give you guys a clue, he has one of the following letters in his first name 'A' and/or 'E'. That is all I will tell you guys. :) (I sure hope I guessed right)

Well, he has the power over pop-ups at Google... so he's just the web layouter, the html slave!

Hahaha!

right, it's all just fun but if one of us found out who you really are, could you get him a prize? Like a few Google shares?
