Last week in This Week in Startups, Jason Calcanis had a great interview with Lior Ron (who like hotpot has his name backwards ),the product manager for Google Hotpot. The interview is interesting, gives insight to the technology and Google’s thinking about its role going forward and its relationship to personalized search.
The interview is longish but well worth watching and chock full of gems. It is refreshing to hear candid remarks from the Maps team.
The actual interview with Lior starts just around minute 4:58 and trust me you will want to start there…Interview with Lior Ron, Hotpot Product Manager by Mike Blumenthal
