A leaked memo from Microsoft SVP Satya Nadella says Microsoft's Erik Jorgensen will now lead MSN's content programming and engineering team. Greg Nelson, Nadella writes, will report to Jorgensen. Why the reshuffle? Nadella explains, in something close to English:
It's imperative that we set up for blurring of the lines between Portal and Search to drive experiences that enable more seamless exploration of content across the search-browse continuum.Meanwhile, Microsoft higher-ups continue to hold talks with Yahoo in an effort to make all of the reshuffled executives redundant. The memo is embedded below.
