As Russell announced on his blog, he's going to be coming to help Yahoo out. His post details some of the twists and turns that led him to where things are today--give it a read.

I couldn't be more happy about this. If you don't already know, Russell is one of those folks who really, really, really seems to get this mobile stuff. He's so far ahead of almost everyone else (especially me) that I just take most of what says on my faith in his vision.

Me? I just signed up for web access on my phone 3 days ago. And I think it really sucks. But that's a topic for a later discussion.

Welcome aboard, Russell!

This is further proof that blogging can help smart people get jobs. :-)

Thanks again Jeremy! It wouldn't have happened without you! I just wrote in the comments on my weblog - I owe you some seriously nice lunches. :-)

Looking at Russel's career history, I bet he will last 6 to 12 months in Yahoo...

Carl - Jeremy said "he's going to be coming to help Yahoo out". Leave it at that. Remember this is a guy who knows what he's doing , and wasnt even bowled over by the prospect of a Google interview. Sounds like a rock solid guy - knows what he's doing - take it or leave it kind of character. Damn good choice for Yahoo in my view. He's EXACTLY what they need.
