"It's no real secret that Google wasn't supporting dodgeball the way we expected," Crowley wrote in the entry, which CNET News.com was alerted to via a link from Robert Scoble's blog. "We couldn't convince them that dodgeball was worth engineering resources, leaving us to watch as other startups got to innovate in the mobile + social space." Crowley could potentially have been referring to Twitter, a Dodgeball rival that's been getting quite a lot of buzz over the past few months.
Google had purchased Dodgeball almost two years ago.
He continued: "While it was a tough decision (and really disappointing) to walk away from dodgeball, I'm actually looking forward to getting to work on other projects again."
