Yahoo!/PHP media wrapup

After the buzz on slashdot several more reputable news websites published stories about Yahoo! and PHP. Here’s a summary so far of the press coverage:

I doubt this sort of thing ever makes it into the New York Times, but it’s really novel for me nonetheless. All sorts of people I know from years back have emailed me over the past couple of days to say “Dude, you’re famous!”

The PHP-Yahoo! story got picked up today by CNET News.com. My favorite excerpt:

“(Yahoo) is a cheap company. (It) can’t afford to waste engineering resources.”

–Michael Radwin, Yahoo engineer

I hope I don’t get fired for pointing out that my employer is stingy. 🙂
