We've just added the ability to show popular queries for your Custom Search Engine, so that your users can see what others have been searching for on your site. Popular queries are updated daily, and the code snippet dynamically shows the most recent data.
To show your CSE's popular queries, go to the "My search engines" page (after you've signed in) and click on the "statistics" link. Cut and paste the popular queries code where you would like them to appear on your website. You can also subscribe to the feed for your CSE popular queries using your favorite feed reader -- the link to the feed is also available on the statistics page.

As Google Reader has grown, so has its engineering team. As the newest member of the Reader team, I am excited to be working with all of the great people who spend their days making the world a better place for reading feeds. I originally started working on Reader as an intern during the summer of 2006. That experience was a ton of fun and a great way to learn. Working as an intern also allowed me to work with people who are some of the best in the tech industry. After that experience I was very happy to come on full-time. For those of you who are interested in looking into the internship program you can find information here: Internship Information. Google is always looking for the best and brightest engineers. Who knows, you might even get to work on Reader.
During a recent planning session, we realized we had never taken a group picture. So I whipped out my Canon Digital Rebel and the result is below. From left to right, in order, we have: me (Brad), Mihai, Susan, Kevin, Steve, Nick, Chris, Ben and Justin.
