More smack on Google

First the Facebook dudes rounded up more money. Now there’s news of more brain drain at Google. Check out this particularly nasty piece from Seeking Alpha which aims to cut Google a new one and for the most part succeeds. Money quote: “Why do Google’s best and brightest leave? Because the “Do No Evil” mantra is hypocritical. The company’s HR spin on letting employees spend 10-20% time on personal projects is a hollow one because the company will always remain focused on “little text ads” – much the same way that MSFT kept focusing on software and did not really do much online, and pays for it today.”
