Emil’s Chronicle - The journal of Emil A Eklund

Going to Google

A few months ago I accepted a job offer from Google. Starting next week I’ll be working for them.

For the last couple of months I’ve been busy finalizing my work at Basset, completing the projects I’ve been involved in and handing over my responsibilities. While Basset has been treating me well during the five or so years I’ve been working there I felt it was time to move on.

Google has some of the best DHTML people and brightest programmers, a chance to work with some of them is very exciting.

Without Erik’s encouragement I doubt it would have happened, thank you!

I can’t wait to get started!

    How was Öland this year? Last time I was there was 1998. They had some art exhibit at Borgholmsslott… Some bird flew into one of the glass exhibits and broke it. The artist, in typical Swedish fashion, incorporated the bird and into the now broken piece. Very clever!

    Congrats on your position at Google!

    Sorry, I just updated my blog feeds and noticed yours had so many unread. That being said, Congrats dude! you’ve earned it over the years that’s for sure.

    I’m now over at Microsoft so chances are security will swarm into my pod and begin to ask questions “Google, what do you know of this Emil and Google” ;) hehehehe

    Hey, I think it is time for you to update your blog =P

    How about writing something about the sub pixel rendering you are working on in WebKit?
