Yahoo Is Wooing I.B.M. Technical
from the New York Times looks at how Yahoo just picked up Prabhakar Raghavan, formerly of the much cited
Clever project (and part of the
for Teoma), as head of research. He’s not directly from IBM but comes to Yahoo via Verity. But another direct IBM hire has happened and Yahoo says more are in

lose their former Yahoo Labs head to Microsoft in April. Google, meanwhile, prefers to raid Bell Labs. See
