Google AOL Shock

March 14, 2009

I read an interesting article by Nicholas Carlson called “Googlers Shocked by Armstrong Defection” here. Google is search so when a Googler goes to AOL, it is a blow to Google search. Wrong. The blow hit Google in the ego. Mr. Carlson included some interesting items in his write up. For example, I quite liked this one:

He never oversaw product managers or engineers, for example.

And this one:

Not to say he isn’t a quick decision maker, “good at people,” a good listener and responsible for hiring everyone in Google’s US sales force, but Tim really was just a sales guy at Google.

Sounds like bruised egos talking to me. Why would a high profile leader go to a loser like AOL? Easy. Money and a chance to break free of Google’s somewhat odd culture. Just my opinion, of course.
