I always love hearing about great people coming to work with us. It turns out that Paul Stamatiou arrived in the bay area over the weekend and started on Monday. He's doing an internship at sitting at the desk right next to me.


In addition, the newly married Les Orchard is moving out here too. Somehow I missed the announcement a few days ago.

I've had Les on my subscription list for years. His was probably one of the first 20 blogs I read and I've never stopped. Les is quite the skilled hacker and an accomplished author, having written Hacking del.icio.us and Hacking RSS and Atom.

I welcome his coolness to the Yahoo! family.

I just realized something. You have a delicious bookmark link but not one for myweb2 (http://myweb2.search.yahoo.com). Why is that? (Sorry, I know this is off topic but it just struck me.)

Because I don't use it, I guess. Or maybe because I haven't really seen it get traction. I'm really not sure.

Thanks for the compliments and warm welcome! I'm looking forward to meeting a few of the people whose blogs have hung out on my list for years, as well. And, I've noticed that an alarming number of them are working at Yahoo! these days. Now, we just have to make sure all our stuff makes it out there and that we have a place to which it can go. :)

A ValleyWag story?

You're kidding, right? That's like referring to the National Enquirer.

Congrats on getting Les to work at Yahoo! He's a great guy with a brilliant mind for all sorts of interesting applications and hacks, and I've had the pleasure communicating with him through the net on some projects. I live in the Bay Area myself, so am excited to get to finally meet him in person.
