Inventive ways of recruiting…

MATHEMATICALLY confident drivers stuck in the usual jam on highway 101 through Silicon Valley were recently able to pass time contemplating a billboard that read: โ€œ{first 10-digit prime found in consecutive digits of e}.com.โ€ The number in question, 7427466391, is a sequence that starts at the 101st digit of e, a constant that is the base of the natural logarithm. The select few who worked this out and made it to the right website then encountered a โ€œharderโ€ riddle. Solving it led to another web page where they were finally invited to submit their curriculum vitae.

From an an Economist article about Google.
