I'm going back to the Search Team[1] but in a very different role this time. Instead of hacking away on software bits, I'm going to be working to:
make sure our products kick the necessary amount of ...
better communicate what we're thinking about and building
incorporate outside feedback and ideas into what we're doing
recruit more smart people

Note, you can also see Jeremy at the WebmasterWorld of Search Conference [webmasterworld.com] next month in fabulous Las Vegas:

Hopefully he'll add teaching the engineering staff how to program a bot to follow a 301 to his projects.

Only if the blog is about himself or the work he does. His comments are in regards to promoting Yahoo's products and services. If he'd said "I kick ass" while discussing an algorithm break-through he personally made then fine. If he is going to sit there and promote Yahoo's products and services saying that THEY will "kick ass" then it is a promotional piece, not a personal blog as such.

That's just my opinion, but I'm Scottish so we don't use the word "ass" as frequently as Americans ...

I'm with WG. I hope Jeremy's the guy at Yahoo who has their inhouse copy of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1 Status Code Definitions documentation...

10.3.2 301 Moved Permanently
The requested resource has been assigned a new permanent URI and any future references to this resource SHOULD use one of the returned URIs.

10.3.3 302 Found
The requested resource resides temporarily under a different URI. Since the redirection might be altered on occasion, the client SHOULD continue to use the Request-URI for future requests


I also hope that Jeremy understands what 'should' means....

3. SHOULD This word, or the adjective "RECOMMENDED", mean that there may exist valid reasons in particular circumstances to ignore a particular item, but the full implications must be understood and carefully weighed before choosing a different course.


Because its pretty clear no one else at Yahoo! actually has a copy.....
