Sergey Brin needs to rotate his wheels


Look at the photo above, which appeared in yesterday's New York Times accompanying a story about Google's introduction of its G1 mobile phone.

What do you see?

Forget the phone — focus on the inline skate wheels of Sergey Brin, the guy on the right.

He needs to rotate his wheels in the worst way.

The inside edge needs to be dominant and in his case both skates' wheels are far more worn on the inside (below).


Takes about five minutes with an Allen wrench or skate tool to optimize wheel orientation.

Maybe I should apply for a job as Brin's wheel rotator — might be more challenging than the one I have now.

Larry Page, Google's co-founder, who's on Brin's right (the picture's left), has his wheels properly aligned, the inside edges ready for a good double-push technique.

Nothing escapes us here.

5 Minutes!?! Come do mine...it takes me a lot longer than that.

Sorry but I couldn't get past the Hair-do on Tim. That stopped me cold!

Well, if you're going to get all nit-picky, Tim has some stray nose hairs that really should be dealt with...
