It’s nice to see the media showing that cool stuff does get done in Bangalore. As you can see, the Y! Bangalore R&D team is 400 strong now… that’s a population explosion considering we were only 80-90 when I started out. Aah, the good old days…

One thing to notice is that they have words from the CEO of Amazon Bangalore and from the CTO of Yahoo! Bangalore, but no one from Google Bangalore! Relatedly, I hear about people joining Yahoo! and about people joining Amazon – how come I never hear about people joining Google in Bangalore? Is something happening in Google at Bangalore at all?
