  Why I left Google


Ok, I relent. Everyone wants to know why I left and answering individually isn’t scaling so here it is, laid out in its long form. Read a little (I get to the punch line in the 3rd paragraph) or read it all. But a warning in advance: there is no drama here, no tell-all, no former colleagues bashed and nothing more than you couldn’t already surmise from what’s happening in the press these days surrounding Google and its attitudes toward user privacy and software developers. This is s...

  YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU LIKE


Over the past year or so, I noticed that my Twitter usage started dropping off. I felt less compelled to check it regularly, usually didn't bother reading it on my morning walk and found myself "keeping up" with the stream less and less as time progressed.I figured this was a fairly natural decline - perhaps the novelty had worn off, people had gotten repetitive, the signal-to-noise ratio had gotten worse or I'd just simply ended up following too many uninteresting people out of politeness.
