Woohoo! Simon is now officially a Yahoo. This has been in the works for a while and I found out it was a done deal when I ran into him on campus yesterday.

That reminds me of a picture I snapped on the day of his interview...

Stewart and Simon

He's gonna be playing with the Flickr team for a while. How could he turn down a job like that? :-)

Since he's going to be working mostly in London, I guess I'll have to head across the pond again to visit. That wouldn't take much arm twisting. I had a good time when I was there for OpenTech.

So Yahoo! has development staff working in Europe? I didn't know that. Good to know!

Yahoo has had an engineering office in London since at least early 1997. Paris, too. There were a half dozen other engineering offices scattered around Western Europe over the years, but some may have been consolidated in the big bubble burst...

Flickr is having a massage.
