GoogleGuy, Iocaine Powder and Dan Egnor
On this google weblog post GoogleGuy gives a little history about his public forum posting then leaves a rather cryptic p.s.s. about Iocaine Powder. The first google result is a description of the program that Dan Egnor wrote in 1999 for the First International RoShamBo Programming Competition; a program which dominated the event.
On the RoShamBo page it explains that the name of the program (Iocaine Powder) comes from the movie “The Princess Bride”. Funny, only because GoogleGuy uses the same movie to explain his choosing the name “GoogleGuy”.
I don’t know about you, but I think Dan Egnor is probably the current incarnation of Googleguy. (or maybe not…)
Last google related item of interest: they’re looking for some UI developers right now~!
