Here's a comment from a Hacker News thread, started today that's about something Google is doing. The third paragraph in this comment is the focus of my interest.

A particularly salty developer I knew ages and ages ago once said (apocryphally, apparently) that there was an old Inuit proverb, “everyone likes the smell of their own farts.”

Google is still taking themselves very seriously while everyone else is starting to get bored.

The problem with being 25 is that you have about 8 years ahead of you before you figure out how full of shit everyone is in their twenties, and maybe another 8 before you figure out that everyone is full of shit and stop worrying quite so much about it.
