Microsoft Loses Windows Live Search GM

Dane Glasgow, General Manager of Windows Live Search, left the company this week for more philanthropic/personal pursuits, marking another major Windows Live executive to leave recently. The note sent out by Live Search chief Satya Nadella might give a clue as to the timing:

With the Search team’s exit from planning complete, Dane Glasgow has decided to leave Microsoft

Apparently, the Windows Live Search team completed a major phase in their development of the search engine recently. With that work done, I guess it made sense for Dane to leave and bring in someone new more suited to the next stage of Live Search’s growth. Live Search has gotten a lot better in the last six months – year, and I guess it was good enough for them to move in with something else.

As LiveSide notes, Satya also referenced a Fall release, meaning it is possible this next stage runs through then, and that Live Search may see a major update this fall.
