Google Weblog

March 19, 2003: How and Why of Google UI

Micah Alpern has blogged some notes on a talk by Marissa Mayer, product manager for "In discussing the companies internal ideation and project management style (3 person teams, 3-6 month projects) she mentioned several techniques they use that are very weblog-ish."

Neema also has some notes. "I asked her about Google's buyout of Blogger. Her answer made it seem like it was almost a charitable acquisition and they were just impressed by the people who work at Blogger and saw that they were doing great work - and just wanted to support them. Of course, they are definitely going to reap the rewards later. But she admitted that she didn't know how."
