  Microsoft Live Search DeathWatch™

You how Calacanis singlehandedly created the FatBloggin' meme? Well, he did.

My meme is the Live Search DeathWatch™ That's shorthand for when Microsoft kills it's search engine branding, and replaces it with something else (like, Yahoo, for example).

The patron saint of all Microsoft watches is Mary Jo Foley, and she reports on yet another executive departure: Dane Glasgow, general manager for Live Search, is leaving Microsoft. Ho hum.

I'll just use this opportunity to re-iterate my take on Live's recent re-org:

Summary: a red-shirted* VP named Satya Nadella is now in charge of Live search engineering. Good luck buddy.

My initial cynical reaction: "GREAT - let's give the guy who produced that incredible Microsoft CRM product that everyone uses the SEARCH AND AD PLATFORM"

*Red-shirted in the Star Trek sense

Glasgow was to report to Nadella, but apparently he didn't care much for his new red-shirted boss.

Crazy idea to get a ton of digg links: Come up with a "Deck of Cards" for Microsoft execs, like they had for Iraq back in 2003. Ballmer would be Saddam (Ace of Spades). Berkowitz would probably be the Jack of Spades... hmmm...
