I’ve always enjoyed this rant from Steve Yegge about how Google differed from Amazon in how they develop their services. Not sure if it’s applicable now but it was quite interesting to hear how the two companies differed in their approach in building and releasing products. After hearing that Google+ was being shutdown, I wondered what would happen with the rant, and whether it would be lost to time. It was fortunate that someone saved it.

For those of you who haven’t read any of Steve’s other blogposts, please checkout his current blog, plus several of his other Drunken Blog Rants. They are well worth your time.
