Digg Founder Kevin Rose Joins Google

The founder of Digg has been hired by the search giant Google. He announced this on his Google+ page where he mentioned that he has finally joined the Google and is bringing its entire staff of his startup Milk to the Google.

Rose pointed out that ““I’m beyond excited to announce that the Milk crew (Kevin Rose, Daniel Burka, Chris Hutchins and Joshua Lane) is joining Google! It’s been a privilege to use Google products over the years (I still remember begging for a Gmail invite) and I can’t wait to be a part of the amazing team that is shaping the future of the web.”

Just a few weeks after leaving Digg (which he founded), Rose formed a startup Milk back in April 2011. Milk was established with an aim to work as development lab for mobile web ideas, which was situated in Mission District in San Francisco.

The news of Digg founder Rose and his team coming to Google was originally surfaced last week. The news comes just a few days after Milk pushed the plug on its very first app, Olink that enabled users to rate the insides of places. Rose further mentioned that ““Oink was our first test and, in preparing to move onto the next project, we’ve decided to shut it down to help focus our efforts” – the efforts that will now take place at Google’s camp.

Perhaps, a good initiative taken by the search giant, Kevin Rose will certainly help bring something valuable to the company.
