FeedBurner CEO Leaving Google

Dick Costolo, the cofounder and CEO of FeedBurner, may be adding the day he left Google to his stand up comedy routine soon, as he is supposed to depart the corporation sometime this week.

Costolo who joined Google when they bought his company seems to have timed his exit strategy with the usual 2 year overseeing that goes with such buy outs. Maybe he can join a reality show - Google Helped Make Me A Millionaire But I Want Another Job.

Dick how about doing some stand up at SES San Jose. I know people throwing parties that could be interested. Or maybe just late night at the Marriott bar - you would have an enthusiastic audience.
