From the InsideGoogle blog comes news that Google has stolen Justin Uberti away from AOL. Uberti was the lead developer of AOL Instant Messenger and had been with the company for 10 years. He started work Oct. 9 out of the Kirkland office, which had a big part in developing Google's own IM service.
In his new blog, Uberti said that during Google's orientation he was asked what word he would use to describe Google. He chose the word colorful.
"More than just the choice of palette, everything (and everyone) at Google seems to have a bit of a whimsical bent."
