Just found out that Ken Thompson, one of the creators of Unix, works at Google. You can see his answers to various questions addressed to Google engineers by following the link with his name on this page.
So let's see, Google has hired:
* Ken Thompson == Unix
* Vint Cerf == TCP/IP
* Andrew Morton == #2 in Linux
* Guido van Rossum == Python
* Ben Collins-Sussman and Brian Fitzpatrick == subversion
* Bram Moolenaar == vim
...and I'm sure there are countless others that I missed.
If this isn't a march towards world domination, I don't know what is :-)
