The Google-to-Facebook talent shift has taken a new step: Matthew Papakipos, an engineering director involved with many of Google's high-profile efforts to reshape browsers and the Web into a more powerful foundation for applications.
"Now that Chrome OS & WebGL are in good shape, it's time for something new. I'm going to work @ Facebook! Love the product and team. Woot!" Papakipos tweeted Monday.
Among projects Papakipos has been involved in: the Chrome browser, the Chrome OS browser-based operating system, and the WebGL project for building 3D graphics into the Web.
