Corporate Cultures At Google And Yahoo
MSNBC takes a look at the different cultures that have developed at Google and Yahoo. While Google attempts to invent lots of things no one has seen before, and then hopes to one day find a way to make money off of it, Yahoo starts with a business plan and will then try to put together the technology that makes it possible. The article likens Google to Intel and Yahoo to Proctor and Gamble, (although I think of Google as more of a 3M). Ultimately, Yahoo's approach winds up with more fun products, like Yahoo Personals and Launchcast (which is the way everyone at our paper gets their music), while Google's approach winds up with more (geek) cool products, like Google News and Google Scholar.

Of course, everyone at both companies wears jeans and a t-shirt.
