“Googleyness is a trait which is defined closely by phrases such as `Not just being cool, but really-really cool’, `Being out of the norm’, `Being an out-of-the-box thinker’, `Being Phenomenal, Amazing, Innovative, and Disruptive’ and, of course `Being a status quo challenger’.”

Admittedly, I had not heard of the term until this morning, as I did my morning review of news:

Law360, San Jose (July 12, 2018, 7:58 PM EDT) — A California federal judge Thursday said she is “struggling” over Google Inc.’s bid to decertify a collective action alleging it discriminates against older job candidates, saying she would mull over the workers’ argument about an inference of bias from the company’s younger workforce and preference for “Googleyness” in applicants.

This webpage gives a nice summary of the Titan missile program on which my father worked for many years.

I just discovered this website.

My father worked at Martin Marietta as an aerospace engineer on Titan missile projects.

I particularly enjoy that part of the website with articles on aspects of the history of Martin.  A few of my favorites relate to the Titan program as well the history of how the development of Martin’s plant in Waterton, Colorado affected Littleton, Colorado.
