I still can't think of it without crying— FOR SALE. BABY SHOES. NEVER WORN."[1]

    The Man Who Killed Google Search

    It's a story from April, I tried seeing if it was posted before, however it's the story about how the advertising and finance team beat the search team into submission by ousting the core person protecting it to pursue "growth" and "revenue" at all costs.

    Just popped up in my feed. I loved Starship Troopers as a kid, not knowing the satire underneath. Anyways, it's a nice interview.
