Christina on quitting Google: “As I walked off campus, debadged, I started laughing. Laughing loud,
like a crazy person, like joker in the old batman series, laughing and
laughing and laughing. My heart leapt out of my mouth and flew high
above the volleyball court and the cross-current swimming pool. My
heart flew high above the eight cafes with gourmet chefs, and the
Segways and the Japanese toilets. It flew across the bay and into the
sun where it was lit up with joy. I laughed because I had done
something only an idiot would do. I quit a job others would kill for to
do something that didn’t have a chance in a million to survive.”

The more I hear about working at Google, the more it sounds like a kind of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory place.
