Submission + - Google To Cut Back 'Dark Matter' Projects, Staff

syousef writes: The Sydney Morning herald reports that Google plans to cut back on "experimental projects" that "aren't really that exciting." Mentioned projects that have already been axed recently include Lively which shuts down at the end of the year and SearchMash. There is further speculation that a lot of the other perks like the free cafeteria are going to be axed as "part of the belt-tightening". Not quite the same financial impact as doubling child care costs, but I guess despite the "do no evil" mantra, this once again shows if you're taking a job based largely on the perks "get it in writing". Staff quitting may not be such a burden to Google as "Google co-founder Sergey Brin announced plans to significantly reduce its workforce of some 10,000 contract workers."
