Googler jumps ship for Faceb... erm, Friendster Richard Kimber, managing director of Southeast Asian operations at Google, won't be moving into the search giant's new Sydney offices . Instead, he'll serve as the new CEO of Friendster — probably enticed by a healthy share of the early social network's latest $20 million in venture capital. While it remains to be seen if Kimber can help the company's investors limp to liquidity (read: trolling for cash with Friendster's social network patents ), he can probably introduce Friendster founder Jonathan Abrams to all sorts of Vietnamese hotties.
