    >Raghavan — a manager, hired by Sundar Pichai, a former McKinsey man and a manager by trade — is an example of everything wrong with the tech industry. Despite his history as a true computer scientist with actual academic credentials, Raghavan chose to bulldoze actual workers and replace them with toadies that would make Google more profitable and less useful to the world at large.

    >Since Prabhakar took the reins in 2020, Google Search has dramatically declined, with the numerous “core” search updates allegedly made to improve the quality of results having an adverse effect, increasing the prevalence of spammy, search engine optimized content.

      >McKinsey man
      daily remainder that these people run the EU and ((advise)) many European countries. Von der Leyen even got lectures from Nuland's hand picked Indian team. Its crazy if you read the "powerful" articles/interview about them. No wonder the west failed to contain Russia and let Ukraine die they have no stake in Europe beyond looking good before their superior and if some whites die so what probably helps the climate agenda.

      Not sure if it's directly his fault, but at least the latter part checks out, Google has completely gone to shit in recent years.
      It used to be that Google was so much better than the competition that it was practically impossible to boycott them. Now I use other search engines simply because I actually want good results.

    Terrible article based entirely on the opening line of
    >The story begins on February 5th 2019
    This assumes that Google Search was good until 2019, which it wasn't. Google Search hasn't been good or even barely passable since the early 2010's.
    Sure it might've gotten worse because they pushed out the guy who made search great in the first place and replaced him with some incompetent asshat for ideological reasons, but by the time that happened Search was already shit compared to what it was a decade prior.

    They're intentionally ruining the company on purpose. Here's a small niggle I've noticed with Chrome lately. If you're fullscreen and ctrl+H, you can immediately start typing to search your history with no further clicks. Make your browser window smaller, for example by snapping it to the side of your screen so it's only half sized, and suddenly when you press ctrl+H you can't just start typing. Now you have to click the eyeglass in the top right, at which point it moves to the top left and you have to click it again. Until a week ago you only had to click it once, but an update made it worse. Why you even have to click at all when your window is smaller is beyond me.

      >Probably the bigger change, from what I've heard, was losing Amit Singhal who led Search until 2016. Amit fought against creeping complexity. There is a semi-famous internal document he wrote where he argued against the other search leads that Google should use less machine-learning, or at least contain it as much as possible, so that ranking stays debuggable and understandable by human search engineers.

    Prabhakar Raghavan was my skip-level manager at Yahoo! and I'd known of him well before that, from my days at IBM Research.
    The author says very few people knew who Raghavan was. Clearly he isn't a computer scientist. It is more an indication of the ignorance of the writer than anything else.
    Raghavan's contributions to Computer Science and, Search in particular, which were made long before he joined Yahoo!, were word-class. That is the reason he was so sought after by search engine companies. His text book on Randomised Algorithms is a classic.
    Calling Raghavan a 'McKinsey' consultant is just a pure ad-hominem attack. The purpose seems to be to vilify him by association. Which is utterly ironic considering that he never worked for them or was ever a 'consultant'
    As for his contributions at Yahoo!, I don't think he had any significant influence on the management direction that company took. In my opinion, absolutely no one at Yahoo!, CEO downwards, had much control over their destiny.
    Yahoo! was a clusterfck all around, with the primary problem being its utterly dysfunctional board, and unfortunate share ownership structure that made it beholden to the demands of Wall St, resulting in a parade of CEOs. Personnel churn was at such a high volume, that I, an individual contributor usually seven levels below the board, calculated that the average tenure of my leadership chain to the board changed once every fifteen days.
    So blaming Raghavan for what happened at Yahoo! is just stupid.
    I don't disagree with the assessment, that Google Search was 'getting too close to money.' But to assign blame in this manner smells like a hit piece.
    Managers, take their marching order from their bosses, ultimately this is the board of the company. If the board feels the need for revenue growth, no manager, CEO included has the power to resist too much. They advise against it, but in the end they will either need to to their biding or be fired.

      Yeah Google search sucks bc the Internet’s infested with millions of bad actors who SEO, make clickbait, scam websites, and other crap. The incentives are largely aligned for people to shit up the internet with their garbage and what one nerd does in a glass tower somewhere to tweak the results from 95% shit to 94% shit ain’t going to matter. Also lmao at McKinsey being the bugbear of today’s Zeitgeist, as if people of the pathetic caliber of Pete Buttigieg are something to fear…oooooh nooo are they going to powerpoint me to death?

      The British Empire was the great cancer of humanity, it's the reason these people bred like rabbits instead of staying tribal peoples like they should have. Africa should have been a natural preserve with only a few dozen thousand tribesmen living there. India should've remained a shithole with regular famines culling the population...
