If I give you two names, which one would you instinctly think of as an open friendly startup and which one would you deem more like a big corporation?
I'm amazed at reading the Gmail Tips and Wants and Yahoo! Mail Tips and Wants that Jeremy Zawodny from Yahoo! posts on his blog. That's product management out in the open with frank comparison with the competition, and I'd like to know if anyone from Google is doing the same (I don't see them doing it but I can be wrong).
I also wonder how the Yahoo! Mail product manager feels about that ;-).
