Job title of the week

At first I thought this line in a Verge article was a typo: “According to one cryptogopher working at Google,…”

I also thought that cryptogopher sounded like a great superhero name. “Look, down in the ground! It’s Cryptogopher!”

But it turns out that Filippo Valsorda describes himself as Cryptogopher @Google in his Twitter profile. I imagine that that’s partly because he apparently works with the programming language Go, the mascot for which is the Go gopher. Unless I’m misinterpreting his phrase Go team; maybe he’s just cheering for a team.

(I suppose cryptogopher is probably not his job title as such, but I liked the phrase job title of the week better than self-description of the week.)
