Stepford Coders

On the shuttle bus at SJC yesterday, the woman sitting across the aisle from me had a Google name badge still attached to her lapel.

I asked, "How was your Google visit?"

"Very good," she said, wondering how I knew she had just visited Google.

"You're still wearing your name tag," I said, pointing to the tag that showed her name, her affiliation, and the fact that she was from Dayton, OH.

"Oh!" she said, quickly removing it.

We briefly chatted about Google. "Great food," she said. She found the experience inside the Googleplex a little surreal and cultish: "they're a little like Stepford wives there".
