My official start date at Google London is 1 Feb 2010; there are signed contracts and everything. Yay. (So, uh, who's left on LiveJournal that's in the London area and feels like showing a poor ign'ant Yank what the town is like, as I've never been there?)

I wonder if livejournal is going to become more active again with the Facebook privacy debacle, or if it'll be subsumed by tweeting. (Not that _I've_ been terribly active on LJ for the past year or two, or that I remember who the hell half the people on my friends list are.)

I'm not in London but I've spent lots of time there (though admittedly, not in the last five years). Good public transit, excellent museums, expensive food (seriously, it's expensive to eat out in London), good theatre. One of the best cities in the world. If you're a meat eater and find yourself in Chingford, there's a really amazing kebab place on the high street that has just about the best kebab and chips I've ever had. Of course, Chingford is way the hell out past Walthamstow, so it's not likely you'll get out there.

Are you looking for anything in particular?

Nothing in particular; anything and everything. I am a sponge.

The urge to punch people who use twitter->livejournal interconnects in the face is nigh overwhelming.

I still hope to make it out to london some day.

Yay! Congrats!
As for London, be sure to visit Camden. I tried to take it all home with me so I could learn how to be a fashionista.

Congrats on getting the gig.

As for the pointers, just pickup a copy of Snatch and Keen Eddie. They'll do the trick.
