Vinton Cerf Joins Google

Google has hired Internet pioneer Vinton Cerf to float more ideas and develop new products, adding another weapon to the online search engine leader's rapidly growing arsenal of intellect. Cerf's defection from MCI Inc., represents the latest coup for Google, which has been amassing more brainpower as its payroll nearly quadrupled to 4,200 workers during the past two years. Along the way, Google has been raiding other companies, a tactic that has sparked a legal battle with one of its major rivals, software maker Microsoft Corp. Vint shall start work at Google on Oct. 3, Cerf's official title will be ''chief Internet evangelist,'' but he is determined to be more than a figurehead or detached visionary. He sees ''What's important at Google is what you are doing today and what you going to do tomorrow. That's the metric that he would be measured by.''

Cerf will remain chairman of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the oversight agency for Internet domain names. He also will continue as a visiting scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he has been focusing on a very Google-like project - trying to figure out a way to connect the Internet to outer space. Cerf has spent the past 11 years at MCI, where he worked on advanced networking technologies including services that combine data, voice and video and helped design MCI Mail, one of the Net's first commercial applications. 'What Google has really been doing is building an entirely new (computing) infrastructure and whenever you do that, it creates opportunities for new applications,'' Cerf said
