the google guy

Who is Tan Chade-Meng? At Google's headquarters in Mountain View, CA, there's a wall of photos featuring this geeky Asian dude and all sorts of famous luminaries who have visited the company—Mikhail Gorbachev, Bill Clinton, the Dalai Lama, Muhammad Ali and Jane Fonda: Hey, Who's He? With Gwyneth? The Google Guy. No celebrity can go through Google without a Meng photo op. It's apparently become sort of a big deal now to be added to Meng's growing gallery. I guess that's how you know you've really made it big—a photo with Tan Chade-Meng. The man, the myth, the legend.
