    Similar to the Goldman Sachs employee earlier this week, a Google developer has posted about his decision to leave the company.. this is a fascinating read!

    GREAT post! Well Written. Loved this:

    Google+ and me, we were simply never meant to be. Truth is I’ve never been much on advertising. I don’t click on ads. When Gmail displays ads based on things I type into my email message it creeps me out. I don’t want my search results to contain the rants of Google+ posters (or Facebook’s or Twitter’s for that matter). When I search for “London pub walks” I want better than the sponsored suggestion to “Buy a London pub walk at Wal-Mart.”
    and...

    The old Google was a great place to work. The new one?

    Great post, I loved this one statement:

    Officially, Google declared that “sharing is broken on the web” ...
    Now that's arrogance.

    Read this earlier today and agreed was a great article. Maybe the guy can have a positive impact on Microsoft.

    Interesting read. Its like when we've got more than enough income we spend it on unnecessary things, but when money gets tight the spending becomes more focused. To me it sounds like this developer was enjoying the excessive spending a little too much.

    To me it sounds like a whiny country song about MTV not showing music videos from the 80s anymore. Those were the days...
