    Well, I was going to start a post here on this but it looks like it already got automatically added It was neat to learn more about how some of the other TCs got started in the industry! For those of you that aren't familiar with Google's Top Contributor program, I'd suggest you look into it. It's a great family to be a part of.

    Totally agree Joy!

    I feel bad I wasn't able to get my answers in and be a part of it.
    But I think it was an excellent idea for a blog post and kudos to Tim for doing it!

    Really cool to read how everyone got started and their insights about being a TC!

    Make that three!

    This was an interesting piece, I'm glad Tim did it too. Really interesting too to see Mike Blumenthal have such a different take on what being a TC means to him. I'm kind of not surprised though, I suppose at the end of the day it is interesting to see such an important part of customer service for Google fulfilled by volunteers. I'd still love to be a part of the team eventually, but it was interesting to see what he thought of the program. I imagine after helping people on the forums for years, it'd definitely get frustrating seeing so many necessary changes just get ignored... Joy, I know spam's been a big thing on your mind for the last while, and reading Bryan's book was a real eye opener for me... I imagine if nothing changes with that in the next few years, I'd feel a little fed up too, haha.

    Either way, it was cool to read more of your stories Joy and Colan! Thank you both for sharing. Thanks to everyone else too.
