  • Leaving CogoLabs, Joining Google

    March 22nd, 2012
    giving, work, switching_jobs  [html]
    Two weeks from Friday will be my last day at CogoLabs before I start at Google Cambridge. I've liked it here, and I'm sad to go, but I think I'll like Google a lot.

    Orientation will be in Mountain View (between San Francisco and San Jose) from 4/9 to 4/13. Who do I know out there that I've been meaning to see?

    This is also going to make my giving much simpler: instead of being confusing and saying "I'm not actually donating at all right now, but I'm doing something that I think has a higher expected value" I can just say "I'm giving 30% of my pay".
