A bunch of current SysAdmins and alums were sitting in the IRC channel on March 23, 2009, when bvargo brought up April fools pranks. The following conversation ensued:
( bvargo ) I need to work on something good for April 1 for that... ( bvargo ) maybe after all this math is done ( bvargo ) (e.g. tomorrow or later) ( bvargo ) I was thinking make Intranet look like gmail ( bvargo ) but not gmail has skins ( eharmon ) that would be efforty ( bvargo ) but cool ( eharmon ) indeed ( eharmon ) just pretend it got bought by google ( bvargo ) oh yes! ( eharmon ) slap the beta tag back on, put a google logo all over it ( eharmon ) change things to the google logo ( bvargo ) intranet is now google schools ( eharmon ) ahaha yes yes ( eharmon ) that is a good one ( eharmon ) they bought the intranet and now its google schools
And in an instant Google Schools was born. A logo was designed, the Gmail login was adapted for Intranet, and work was begun on a clone of the Gmail interface for Intranet.
