“A nearly impenetrable thicket of geekitude…”


This month’s edition of the Communications of the ACM has an insert called the Google Labs Aptitude Test, which you can also find on-line.

Looking at the questions, I am way too stupid to work at Google. On the other hand, I like their sense of humour:

  • Question 2: Write a haiku describing possible methods for predicting search traffic seasonality.
  • Question 5: What’s broken with Unix? How would you fix it?
