Google has hired Internet pioneer Vinton Cerf to float more ideas and develop new products, adding another weapon to the online search engine leader's rapidly growing arsenal of intellect. Cerf's defection from MCI Inc., represents the latest coup for Google, which has been amassing more brainpower as its payroll nearly quadrupled to 4,200 workers during the past two years. Along the way, Google has been raiding other companies, a tactic that has sparked a legal battle with one of its major rivals, software maker Microsoft Corp. Vint shall start work at Google on Oct. 3, Cerf's official title will be ''chief Internet evangelist,'' but he is determined to be more than a figurehead or detached visionary. He sees ''What's important at Google is what you are doing today and what you going to do tomorrow. That's the metric that he would be measured by.''
