Danny Sullivan is joining Google. “When I retired from search journalism in June, I had no idea what I would be doing next. I just knew I was ready for a break and something different from what I had been doing for so long. That something different has arrived: I’m joining Google as of Monday.” I feel uneasy about this. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Danny; my unease does not come from him. My concern is the search problems Google has will not be resolved by having a liaison come out and soothe everybody. I hope Google will ask Danny to help explain the changes they are making to get their search working better, and not to try to downplay issues.
