New Google kid: Aaron Boodman
Under the layers of scripts, components, and rants, that's the motivation for building...I want more great interfaces on the web. I want to see new, interesting ways to navigate applications. I want to see the web community continue to lead the software industry into the future of interface design.

We're very lucky. Aaron Boodman (a.k.a. youngpup) is on board; nice young man that he is - he's accepted our offer and is now working with us here at Google* where his first project will be improvements and features to Blogger's UI. Then later - he'll be helping us to transform our relationship to content generation into something richer, useful, and easier-to-understand.

His Googlism says it best: aaron boodman is the man when it comes to web ui s
*reviews* Well, it doesn't exactly say it best. But we can overlook the lowercase text-transformations. And that weird last letter "s".
Thanks, Aaron. We'll try to keep the weather here nicer than Seattle.
*For those wondering, yes this is the result of this post about looking for people interested in working for Google. But we're not done hiring yet. Not by a long shot. Let me know if you're interested in joining the Google UI or Engineering team...
