Thunder Parley, Google Food Critic

Can I just start by saying I want a name like 'Thunder Parley.' Now that I've got that off my chest, here's the scoop: Parley, a software engineer at Google, is also the company's de facto food critic. The L.A. Times ran a fawning profile the foodie behind Google's in-house review email, which is such a hit that apparently Google's stable of chefs now compete for Parely's favor, busting out dishes according to his personal tastes. Thunder's influence reaches so far, in fact, that he's been placed on the chef hiring committee. Not a bad gig, if you can get it. (via Gridskipper)
