    The first paragraph sounds like it could have been taken from Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker.

    I awoke aboard a boat, just before daybreak, which was weird. The last thing I remembered was being in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, wrapping up a four-hour Google I/O keynote liveblogging session. My last recollection was of Google CEO Larry Page taking questions from the audience and promoting a vision of a utopia where society could be
    free to innovate and experiment, unencumbered by government regulations or social norms.

    ….

    what would you do if you woke up with a groggy head, metallic taste in your mouth, on the google island … what would you do?

    The other paragraphs were even creepier.

    I would just like to say that I think that Larry Page is adorable.
