OK, a while ago I wrote a blogpost titled ‘Are You Smart Enough?’

It’s been a while since I’ve posted it and I actually never really posted the answer to that question, so here goes.

e = 2.71828182845904523536028747135266249775724709369

995957496696762772407663035354759457138217852516642

7427466391932003059………………………………………………………

So it’s first consecutive ten digit prime numbers are 7427466391. I tried the address but there was nothing there anymore but apparently it supposed to go to this page which says ‘Congratulations, You have reached Level 2!’ So basically it’s just one clue after another. Just a way for Google to test their potential engineers or something.

While going through my notes from Communication Revolutions class, I suddenly recall a video Peter showed us during last week’s class. The video was about Google search engine. One section I could never forget from the video was when they were talking about their employee and how they advertise jobs. Google is known to have the smartest people in the industry and their job advertisement reflects this statement. Image below is a billboard ad from Google.

billboard

{ first 10-digit prime in consecutive digits of e }.com

This mysterious looking billboard ad is anything but ordinary. It is actually a question to be solved. A math problem that goes, find the first 10-digit prime found in consecutive digits of e. If you solve the problem correctly and typed in the answer to the Google search engine, you will be directed to Google’s jobs site.

Is it just me who think this is so brilliant?
