long-ago amusing exchange

Reading journal from the past.  In 2008, talking with another Googler:

D: "How many employees are we at? 30,000? 40,000?"

Me: "Oh my God, surely not!"

D: "At least 20,000."

Me: "That's not so bad."

D: "You can justify that? 'Oh, we're a whale, but we're not yet the blue whale.'"

How serendipitous that your post paralleled this one from io9 in my morning feed.
