Due Credit

Don Park, you should know better!  Don comments on the “Add Live Search to Your Site” announce, saying “better late than never”, and “nice reactive move”.  Does he really think that we saw Google’s announce, and then real quick-like, implemented the feature and shipped it in response?

The fact is, both we and Google were working on the feature for a while.  I commend Google for shipping a day or two earlier than us.  It’s hard to say who started first, but I would be interested in Don’s best guess about the probability that Google knows which products we’re “secretly” developing versus us knowing what they’re secretly developing.  At least he notes that we shipped; next is to give some credit to Yahoo for leading both of us in some respects.
