Lars Rasmussen, Father Of Google Maps And Google Wave, Heads To Facebook [TechCrunch]

I wonder if there was chair-throwing inside the Googleplex over this move

When Google put their faith in Wave, an ambitious new project last year, they knew it was a gamble. But a big part of it was the team behind the project. A team led by Lars Rasmussen, the engineer best known as the co-creator of the hugely successful Google Maps. And now he’s left the company. And from what we hear, he’s heading to Facebook.

Rasmussen confirmed his departure on his Facebook page.
