I wanna hang out at Google anywhere!
These photos (courtesy Guy Kawasaki) really do make me wish I worked for Google or at least that I had a desk at Google even if i worked for myself! It wouldn’t matter which part of the world since I would never want to go outside anyway. Of course if the office had Guy Kawasaki as a receptionist, it would be even more welcoming.
Hey but wait a minute! How come Google in Pakistan doesn’t have an office like this? In fact isn’t our friend Badar Khushnood a mobile, walking talking office all on his lonesome? When is Google going to see that he is doing a terrific job and should be given support in terms of an office, people and a cool environment for us to hang out in?
On a more serious note, Rishi Jaitly of Google was recently in Pakistan and did a whirlwind tour meeting various people – industry types like us (well not all of them are like us), government types (definitely not like us), bloggers like us, media guys (like us if you think of bloggers as citizen journos). But come to think of it they are not really like us, are they? Some of them take themselves far too seriously 😉
Rishi spoke at the CIO launch and on various television channels – Dawn News and CNBC are two that I caught him on. He checked out the Wagah border and generally had a very good time. No, that is not just my opinion even though I do believe that most people who visit Pakistan do have a great time. Check out the Google Policy Blog and see for yourself what Rishi had to say about his visit. As he himself points out, Pakistan has great potential and a vibrant and active blogging and technology community. So there’s every reason for Google to have a greater presence here. It’s just makes good sense :). Anyone at Google listening???
