Rumors of Google Hiring 15 Year Old Not True

Last night I was scanning Digg.com and noticed Google hires 15-year old kid. Now the article is under review, after almost 1,000 diggs. The, what seems to be, real looking press release is a fraud. A thread at Cre8asite Forums notes how the information on the press release is wrong. First thing is that Larry Page isn't Google's CEO anymore, Eric Schimidt is and has been since 2001. The kids blog seems to be down now, but reportedly, it has a post saying the release is not true.

Press release spam is a major issue these days and so is control of social networking scams.

It's funny how pissed all the digg users got when they realized it was a hoax. Never believe anything you find online unless you do some research.
