Dodgeball Founders Quit Google

Google acquired mobile location-based friend-finder Dodgeball in May 2005. Roughly 2 years later, the two Dodgeball founders quit Google, and it looks like they’re pi**ed:

So.... Alex and I quit Google on Friday.

It’s no real secret that Google wasn’t supporting dodgeball the way we expected. The whole experience was incredibly frustrating for us – especially as we couldn’t convince them that dodgeball was worth engineering resources, leaving us to watch as other startups got to innovate in the mobile + social space. And while it was a tough decision (and really disappointing) to walk away from dodgeball, I’m actually looking forward to getting to work on other projects again.
