Please be advised that Google and its underwriters expect to open the auction for the shares of Google's Class A common stock at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) on Friday, August 13, 2004. You must already have a bidder ID if you intend to submit a bid in the auction for Google's Class A common stock.

Pretty sure only a small % of Google employees get to do the 25% thing.

PhDs are generally most productive when they are working on their own thing. That's pretty much why they got PhDs in the first place.

A lot of people think the "Do No Evil" is dumb management.

Eric Schmidt (in Playboy):

"Evil is whatever Sergey says it is."

For those who don't wish to invest their own money, or are geographically ineligible, you can get the auction inside scoop vicariously, via Business Week.
