Super excited to join Google and take it to the next level!
Please don't stop blogging your technical deep dives! Your passion is an inspiration.
This is also seems like a smart move by Google. They want to "get more into social" (whatever that means), and PostRank has been aggregating and analyzing social interactions across the web for longer than most.
I just hope this doesn't reduce the volume or quality of posts to igvita.com - it's such an amazing resource for technical ruby "stuff".
Huge congratulations to Ilya and the crew at PostRank. Consistent and best-in-class execution. Awesome job and hope it was a huge pay day :)
I know it's hypocritical for me to say but rather unfortunate they're moving to MV. Would be nice to have some rich young people in Waterloo to act as investor/mentors.
And please continue blogging!
Kudos to them!
Interestingly many rubyists seem to be joining the Go community lately.
Go Canucks Go!
If this buyout motivates more local engineers to start companies, I think it is a good thing.
