"director of business optimization"

Google keeps sending out signals like a drunk girl at a party in december with a bikini on. Maybe they won't go public, but it seems like they will have all their ducks in a row to do what they want when they want.

I sure hope that if / when Google go Public that the Media report the occasion with cool, calm professionalism.

That won't happen.

If I was Google, my biggest fear about going public right now would be the potentially devastating effect on the company as a Tech. Media, still hung over from the "dotcom" boom bust, treat it as a hair-of-the-dog.

"director of business optimization"

-- I'm telling you, Google is out to rid the world of their knowledge and understanding of the term "search engine optimization". They started it at PubCon by handing out those little booklets for AdWords containing the word optimization, and then Overture jumped in and talked about optimizing their ads, etc... This is just one more stepping stone. (Yes, PubCon Paranoia still exists!)

Hiring a good analyst to check things over isn't always a sign of an IPO ready to bust. Granted, we can all expect it and believe it (which I do) -- but look at the false Google update threads. Sometimes I swear they do things like this to point and laugh at the people reacting to it all.

I haven't a clue what that means but I can't stop thinking about it.

mmmmmmm drunk girl at a party in december with a bikini on :P in anycase it does look like they have hired some good heads over the last few months which could be key for IPO situations. However, if they dont go IPO I wont have anything fun to invest in this year :P

A little more on that subject:

[business2.com...]

Until a Google search for "Google IPO" generates links to stories about an actual filing instead of more speculation, the tech IPO market will remain as dead as Disco Duck.

Guess what turns up for a "Google IPO" search...
