    Yeah, the office looks amazing. I am thinking about getting something "so cool" for our office, but... whenever we feel like not working we just go home, so my motivation for getting that "entertainment" things is pretty low.

    Still, it would be pretty cool to spend couple of days in Google's office.

    Gabriel, congrats on the new job. I think it is important to grow and develop professionally and it sounds like this new gig will help you do it.

    Vote for Pedro
    (and may all your wildest dreams come true)

    Damn! I guess I'm gonna have to take that "what's so special about Google" comment back :)

    This actually sets me sad ... I guess because you were an inspiration for me and I tried to follow your path.

    I don't see my self stopping programming and even less stopping working on the game industry ... so I can't see it as something good but probably it is for you.

    Saludos Grabriel y muchas gracias por haber sido parte del empujon que me llevo a estar en donde estoy (No te imaginas cuanto has influenciado en cuantas vidas).

    Congrats on your graduation Gabriel! I also feel like one of the old dexterity forum class, been at it for almost a decade now. I've started to think about moving in a different direction, but am still having too much fun living in the games world. I'm sure Google will be full of exciting things also!

    Ironically, I hate beer, and so did everyone who worked on that game :)

    Hi Gabriel,

    All the best in Zurich, this is very exciting.

    A little sad, too, of course, but such is life. As someone who was taken a looong break from development (one that isn't truly over yet) I can completely understand. We were all a lot younger back then. :)
