Growing pains

Man, I hate medical metaphors. So I apologize for my pseudo-medical blog post title. And I ask Daniel Pink to stop using "sclerosis" unless he decides to get an MD (though I should say that I otherwise find him a very interesting writer).

This article details the maturation of Googleand the resultant move of many of its employees to start-ups.

Ahh, the growing up process; it comes with  more responsibility and complication. But what you give up in making out when your boyfriend drops you off, you make up in...OK, I have to stop this.
