Friday Whimsy: When Xooglers Return

August 15, 2008

A Xoogler is a Google employee who quits and takes a new job. Example: Benjamin Ling who went to Facebook about a year ago. (CNet has a useful write up here.) The return to the Googleplex of a former Google Jedi is a significant event, probably equivalent to Darth Vader’s going to the dark side. The problem is that I don’t have a suitable term for this event. I wish to submit some candidates:

  1. ReGoogle
  2. DeXoogle
  3. Google Loop
  4. ReGOOG
  5. Googley Go Round

Any ideas? Let me know. For now, my preference is ReGoogle. Example: Mr. Ling reGOOGed this week.
