  1. I’ve actually been wondering recently what Google have been up to. They have a lot of talented people working for them, but some of the new ideas out there (tagging in search, clustering, etc.) don’t seem to be making their way into Googles products. Could it be that they’ve got to the critical number of intelligent people (like MS) where no significant innovation occurs any more.
