"We Are Absolutely in a Feature Race," Says Bradley Horowitz of Google - Liz Gannes - Social - AllThingsD

The current leader in my irony-of-the-week contest

Shortly after I spoke with Horowitz at Google’s campus yesterday, Google engineer Steve Yegge published a scathing critique of Google’s lack of a platform strategy that was particularly hard on Google+, calling it “a knee-jerk reaction, a study in short-term thinking, predicated on the incorrect notion that Facebook is successful because they built a great product.” Yegge later said the post was intended for internal eyes only, but in addition to critiquing Google+, he apparently also had a bit of trouble using the site, and accidentally posted his manifesto on his public Google+ page. Google declined to comment on Yegge’s post.
