    • 2007, The Economist (volume 384, page 58)
      Older Googlers with families tend to like it less, because "everybody, even young mums, works seven days a week." Another Xoogler, who held a senior position, says that by trying to create a "Utopia" of untrammelled creativity, Google ended up with "dystopia".
    • 2012, Brian Clifton, Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics, page 205:
      As a search marketer, Xoogler (ex-Googler), and now web consultant, I have seen both sides of the “Google fence,” and that has been fascinating.
