Another story of 2 - employee company success: Microsoft buys search company Lookout.
"Lookout is a small software add-on to Microsoft's Outlook e-mail, contacts and scheduling program that allows users to bypass the search tools provided by Microsoft and sift through e-mail, contacts and other information with keywords. Results are returned nearly instantaneously."
"Lookout is essentially a two-man operation, led by Mike Belshe and Eric Hahn. Belshe, the software developer who founded Lookout, will join Microsoft as a full-time employee."
On the other hand Rob Howard - the man who leaved Microsoft to found Telligent announces that Scott Watermasysk joins his company today as a senior software architect. Scott is the man behind the popular .Text blogging engine.
