Who Should Be Fired Over The Google Email?

by Nathan Weinberg
So, the author of the now infamous ex-Googler email has been revealed, and Geoffrey Elliott is none too happy about the whole situation. See, he worked at Microsoft, left to start a startup, the startup got bought by Google, and he left Google to return to Microsoft. His Microsoft recruiter sent him some questions about life at Google, and in the context of a private conversation, he sent along his thoughts.

That is a shame that his privacy has been ruined like that. Isn’t job interview contents supposed to be kept in between the applicant and the authorized person in HR just as the recommendation letters are kept sealed until it is delivered to the recruiting HR people?

Creating Images for the Web with Scalable Vector Graphics

DiamondLime is talking about the benefits of vector graphics for web.

Vector graphics could be one of the best things to happen to the web. Think about it—any user of any device could scale the entire site, including graphics, text, and rendered HTML elements to the size he or she wants without mucking up how it looks. Only photographs and other images that don’t convert well to vector formats would remain a problem.

Fun thing to read for the day!

Report: Don't Buy AdWords, Focus On SEO

Over the weekend, with the sensational headline "Search & Destroy," the New York Post wrote up the forthcoming results of an "audit" from UK-based Internet Search Metrics (also called Internet Search Management). The Post article says the audit, which is not yet released, argues that the spending on paid-search is often unjustified and that more resources should be devoted to optimization.

I wonder what this "Audit" people will going to do with all these pouring information era. People are paying AdWords to be listed above everybody in the keywords criteria. If they are going to be listed in the wrong field,, isn't that their loss? It seems that the decision what to click out of the search result is depend on users.

Search engine by people VS machine

Interesting post I have found today is talking about search engine by human vs machine. Also it mentions about brand marketing and the effects of it, too as follows:

Google Is a Machine; Mahalo, Our Human Search Savior
by Jordan McCollum
"We’ve already mentioned Matt Cutts’s thoughts on humans’ role in enhancing search engine results today. A New York Times article, “The Human Touch That May Loosen Google’s Grip,” yesterday prompted Matt’s (and several others’, including Search Engine Watch and Search Engine Land) response(s) today."more

An Open Letter to Jerry Yang

"Welcome aboard, Chief Yahoo.

I did a little asking around, to some people that matter in the industry, people that care about your search division, and especially about your Panama rollout. What will happen next? Anything cool? Bold?"

I am sure it is a really important time of period for Yahoo to accelerate themselves in the field. I am sure Yang has already felt heavy weights on his shoulder

Microsoft beats back piracy in China

The problem of piracy could just be the necessary price of doing business in China for US companies. Yesterday the Bush administration announced it’s playing hardball and taking China to court in the World Trade Organization on charges of violating intellectual property rights, citing rampant piracy of books, music, and videos.


Google corners nearly two-thirds of US search market

The latest search market share numbers are in from Hitwise: in the four weeks ended March 31st, Google (GOOG) racked up fully 64.13% of all US searches. That’s up more than 10% since March 2006, and, if trends hold, Google’s share will pass the two thirds mark by August. In the same period, Yahoo (YHOO), Microsoft (MSFT), and Ask (IACI) all lost share. As the old Wall Street hands like to say: “Liquidity begets liquidity.”
