Google Sounds Like the Coolest Place To Work

And I'm not just saying that because they own the company that hosts my blog. Really. (Please, please, please don't delete me, Great Google Overlords... whimper, moan.)

I'm saying that because one of the things they do is host Google talks - and this last year, two of my greatest interests, board games & faith in God, were up for discussion.

Here's Matt Leacock, designer of Pandemic (and the upcoming Roll Through the Ages), talking about the process of game design. (BTW, Pandemic is one of the best cooperative games out there - accessible to non-gamers & fun for gamers.)

And here's Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, NY, talking about his book, The Reason For God (which was on my Top Ten books post from earlier in the week).

Enjoy!

Mark,
My wife works at Google. Its as cool as you think it is. Next time you are in the Bay Area I'd be happy to set up a tour and even a free lunch/dinner in one of their awesome cafes.
