Kate Vale and Lars Rasmussen Leave Google

Google, slow and clunky? Yes, but not the search engine. It’s the Google bureaucracy people are complaining about, including two recent high profile departures from its Australian office – Kate Vale and Lars Rasmussen. Vale started Google’s Australian office in her lounge room; Rasmussen is a co-founder of what became Google Maps.
“I think Google has become more corporate over the years,” Vale told the Sydney Morning Herald. “When I started and when Lars started it was a much smaller company and it was a lot easier to get things done but companies change as they grow.” Rasmussen is heading to facebook and there’s speculation Vale will do the same.
