Go to google.com/human.txt and you will find a text file recruiting new Google engineers to the company.
The file reads:
Google is built by a large team of engineers, designers, researchers, robots, and others in many different sites across the globe. It is updated continuously, and built with more tools and technologies than we can shake a stick at. If you’d like to help us out, see google.com/jobs.
The reason this is cute is because of the concept behind the robots.txt file. Clearly, Google is looking for smart, funny and geeky individuals to hire.
This reminds me of when the Daily Mail recruited via robots.txt file.
