Yep, a guy I promoted to QA Manager in AOL back in the early days started at
Google recently. Adrian (from Segala) worked there with him for almost 9
years. However my best contact is at Google in Googleplex itself, NY - I'm
pretty sure he works with T.V. So, if anyone needs to touch base then I'm
happy to oblige.

      Hi all -
      I'm forwarding this just for general interest; 
      unfortunately the particular positions are based in 
      google headquarters in the US; but maybe there may be an 
      opportunity to develop some interaction between irl-dean 
      and google locally.  Anyone have any contacts in google in Dublin?
      Best - Barry.
