Why Google has done so well?

In Geeking with Greg: Yahoo blew it, Greg Linden provides a non-technical precis of an interesting but rather technical article in Wired magazine about why Yahoo isn’t doing so well (comparatively speaking). Lots of insights about who tried to buy who when, that kind of thing.

I was struck by the conclusion of the Wired article: "At Yahoo, the marketers rule, and at Google the engineers rule. And for that, Yahoo is finally paying the price."
