Here is what Amazon has to say about competition when it comes to recriting the best talents...[Quote]Before Google, everyone pretty much used the same time-honored approach. Interview, offer, lather, rinse, repeat. But I think they've changed the game.
Everyone knows Google's doing a good job at hiring smart people. It's not just anecdotal; the numbers speak for themselves. We lose a lot of our best candidates to them. They're clearly doing something right.
...What they're doing can hardly be called recruiting anymore. The term "recruiting" implies that you're going out and looking for people, and trying to convince them to come work for you. Google has managed to turn the process around. Smart people now make the pilgrimage to Google, and Google spends the bulk of their time turning great people away. [/Quote]

Two of our friends got together and threw a early 2005, Christmas party last Thursday. It was executed in style and food was great. Everything just hit the spot. After a meal of Turkey, honey glazed Pork, Pork ribs, Sossages , Toss Salad, Potato Salad, Garlic bread, wine, Brownies, and Soft drinks, I was just full. Thank you everyone for making it a great evening and special thanks goes to E and Y.

Canon S50, F4, 1/60 Sec with inbuilt Flash.
I and my friends were at Barista last weekend. When the coffee finally arrived, we saw some skilled art and since I have gotten into the habit of carrying my camera everywhere, I managed to snap a shot :-) I wish I had a mini tripod to stabilize the camera and take this shot without using the flash but I didn't have that luxury. I hate using a direct flash on a close up subject.
