I'm heading up to the Bay area this weekend and want to stop and check out the center of the Android Universe, but I am clueless. Do they give tours? Is it an open campus that I can just explore? Where can I park, and is it free?
I've searched and couldn't find anything, although I do see some visitor parking outside Building 44 (the Android android!) on Google Maps so I am hoping for the best. If anyone has any tips or insight please feel free to let me know what to do/where to go.
Also, I will do what I can to get some info from Andy, Sergey et al. I'm not opposed to a lighthearted kidnapping, a la Christmas Vacation. Let me know.
Building 44 is a must-see. I'd also recommend having someone take a picture of you taking a picture of yourself taking a picture of the inhabitants of Building 44 who are laughing and taking a picture of someone taking a picture of you taking a picture of yourself. (If you've had any Googlers circled on Google+ from the last year or so, that'll make sense. Otherwise, apologies.)
But do remember that for as open and friendly as the Google campus is, people do work there.
