Joshua Schachter Lands At Google

TechCrunch reports that Joshua Schachter, founder of the bookmarking service and a former Yahoo executive, had his first day on the job today at Google.

Schachter joined Yahoo when it purchased in December 2005. Schachter then left Yahoo in June 2008, calling his time there “an incredibly frustrating experience.”

Schachter’s LinkedIn profile says he’s a “Member of Technical Staff” at Google, but he told TechCrunch that he hasn’t been assigned to a specific project yet.

There’s more discussion at Techmeme.

    I used to be happy user of and really respect Mr. Schachter for his work.
    After he left, the whole service has been redesigned, loosing most of its good points.
    Starting from name change from funny to boring, then they stopped supporting Firefox plugin (putting bookmarklet instead).
    What’s the worst – the service cannot remember my password so I have to put it every time I need the service (I’m using it from two computers).

    Mr Schachter, your child has been ruined!
