Google Finance Saddens Zawodny

Jeremy Zawodny laments that ideas his Yahoo! Finance team dreamed up years ago are now being lauded in Google Finance. The most biting part: Katie Stanton, formerly of Jeremy's team, was the one who announced Google Finance.

I suddenly remember John Batelle saying that every idea in Yahoo needs to be justified with a business case before it even gets tested, while Google allows the implementation of wild ideas in 20% time.

I can relate. You won't believe how many Philippine organizations (yes, even IT companies) lack either the manpower or the mindset to test new (or even Web 1.0) ideas.
