Friendfeed founder created “Don’t Be Evil”

News to me, but apparently Paul Buchheit created the slogan “Don’t Be Evil”. Wikipedia confirms, but also erroneously credits Paul with creating Ajax (the underlying Ajax technologies were introduced by Microsoft). Frankly, it is hard to take anyone seriously who created a company motto reminding an organization not to be “evil” to their customers. Friendfeed now seems a little lamer to me than it did before.

    “Don’t be Evil” was created for Google. In Italian Wikipedia they attribute the slogan to Sergey Brin, but I’ve already read that is Paul Buchheit’s. I don’t think you should be worried more about FF now :)
