maybe the disconnect again goes back to why people are going hard on FB now if i go work for goldman or HP, even if they inundate me with reputation-burnishing pablum, at the end of the day i know what im getting the crushing realization that google is the new HP is too much

that's actually fair. maybe it's that much more disappointing to me to realize google isn't different. maybe it's the HP-ization (or name other older techco) of a great company

i'm sure his specific point of view is skewed, though i have heard many versions of this story from multiple G+ ex employees over the years, which is why im inclined to put more faith in it it's a bummer to think the internet's post-graduate campus has become just another bigco.

it was a failure but Google can afford to fail over and over and not have consequences

as i recall, said SVP had a very nice soft landing at a VC firm as his thanks for wrecking user trust and polluting nearly every single google product. im sure his life rules

this very long and engaging thread is a master class in how a corporation dies. politics, a complete lack of cohesion and an "emperor has no clothes" air around the SVP if google didn't mint money hand over fist, G+ would have been an existential failure
