Google engineer Steve Yegge posted a long, impassioned, and blunt rant to Google+ about what he felt were problems with Google+. One of those problems, it seems, manifested in the fact that Yegge accidentally made that post public, instead of an internal share for fellow Googlers. You may as well go read it now. It's here, too. Apart from the Google and Amazon specifics, it is a great read for insight about architecture, IT management, and factors that cause otherwise talented engineers to get totally bummed out.
