The company is also looking to hire a local manager of sales to Defense Department agencies.
Seriously? Largest Search Engine in the world, and yet no defense/government presence? That surprises me.

"I could see google being big in the Defense area. With more and more terrorists using the web to communicate, the goverment needs great minds to come up with algo's to sniff out information on the web. I'm sure they have something in place, but anything can be improved."
"Senor traveled to Baghdad in mid-April in one of the first civilian convoys to enter Iraq following the fall of the former regime. He has been serving in Iraq since, advising Amb. Bremer on a variety of policy and communications issues."
Sweet jesus! Is his previous job experience not one of the worst marketing efforts in the history of the United States [democraticunderground.com]? Bare minimum this guy's style is going to be a far cry from the subtly cool, yet extremely effective word of mouth marketing style of the Cindy McCaffrey [blog.searchenginewatch.com], whose job he is filling. Regardless of your opinion on the invasion of Iraq, the attitude of his previous employers is certainly one of "we know best, do as your told." And he's going to bring that to Google as VP of Global Communications and Strategy? Man. Seems awfully dodgy. Giving this guy access to my Gmail messages and search history really gives me the creeps. So what do I do? Stop using GMail (which I love), uninstall the Google Toolbar (which I love)?
I think we're going to start seeing people becoming increasingly vocal about rejecting Google, despite its excellent products and services. Sadly they are moving far beyond simply delivering relevant search results.
I love the taste of McDonalds french fries (because a team of PhDs has been working on them for a long time), but I know they're bad for my health so I choose not to eat them.

Though he showed up in Iraq as a junior press handler, Senor is now Bremer's senior advisor and for most of last summer he was in charge of organizing Iraq's post-Saddam media, an effort which most have rated as little short of a disaster.

And this makes him qualified for a fat job at Google helping orgainize the world's information?
If G's policy is to do no evil, why would they need Mr. Senor as their mouthpiece?
Cue creepy music, man.
