his way out the door as CEO of Yahoo, to be replaced by that original Yahooligan, Jerry Yang.
Ah, I remember when Jerry was a wee lad, walking up onstage to accept the "Best in Show" at Internet World in San Jose way back in the Jurassic Web age of 1995. Now just look at 'im!
And while Yahoo seems to be firing on a few cylinders, Google seems to be hiring at full speed ahead just up the coast a bit, particularly in the, oh, say, blogging slash public policy arena.
Andrew McLaughlin, Google's director of "Public Policy and Government Affairs" (read: lobbyist) announced his new blog earlier today, and me likey.
Andrew will be blogging on issues his group is working, including privacy, child online safety, copyright and trademark protection, patent reform, and other relevant topics.
Check out Andrew's first post here. But don't stop at the lobbyist's office.
Be sure to scroll down and see all the other Google blogs.
There's some serious bloggin' action goin' on out there at Google in Silicon Valley, and me likey that, too.
AdWords API, Ajax, Custom Search, Google Gears, Google Reader, Google Mac...you have questions, they've got a blog that tries to give some answers.
Might they have a blogging job for Terry Semel??? Topic: Google Competitors Looking For New Oxygen
Me, I'm gearing up for my own visit to the Left Coast, my first since the search-cum-Buick Invitational out to San Diego in January.
But fear not, I plan to be back out of Kal-ee-forn-i-ay long before folks start lining up for all-nighters at the Cingular stores to be the first in line for their iPhones.
I know the makings of a stampede when I see one.
