A number of people have been asking what I'm working on, so here's a pseudo-answer…

I can't say exactly what I'm working on, because it's incredibly cool :-) But I what I can say is that I'm working on Google Video, in the team that develops what we call the Video Frontend. That's what you see when you go video.google.com. Well, that's my 80% project - I've got ideas about the 20% one…

The majority of work on the frontend happens here in Kirkland, and it's a great team of very talented engineers.

I.e. it's a cool group of developers that I happen to find myself in.

It's a very interesting environment - with development encompassing the gamut of what it means to “deliver video”. Plus the fact that I've only been here a few weeks and some of my “getting my hands dirty” code is already live :-) Actually, the first little bit was live within a few days of me joining the group…

“Shipping software” really has a new meaning at this company. I love it!
