Wayback Wednesday and a Fail (kinda): Google business card, circa 1998

Q. What’s the most expensive mistake you’ve made at work?

A. I met both Carl Page and Larry Page at a party hosted by a Stanford friend of mine in 1998. Carl gave me his card for eGroups and said “we’re hiring”. Larry gave me his card for Google—a flimsy bit of paper obviously printed by bubble jet—and said “we’re hiring”. I said, “Nah, who needs another search engine?” and went to graduate school. I still have the card. (Zestyping)

    Funny how he still had the card. I would have used it to filter my joints…
