Brian Smith notes that the senior product manager of Yahoo Shopping Search, David Beach, has decided to leave Yahoo after five years. Beach confirmed his departure from Yahoo on his blog, stating that Yahoo could not provide "the kind of opportunity that Wink is providing." Wink, a social search engine, "analyzes tags and submissions from Digg, Furl, Slashdot, Yahoo MyWeb, and other services, plus user-imported tags from del.icio.us, and favorites marked at Wink, and figure out which pages are most relevant through our TagRank (tm) algorithms." Should be a fun move for Beach.
