Does anyone know why Android isn't developed in the open?
The word that best describes Google's approach to corporate governance is "hubris" and the word that least describes it is "humility".
According to the Google spin on reality, only those smart people who were able to pass through Google's incredibly finely tuned smart person filter (three months of phone screens and 6 hours of on site attack interviews) are properly qualified to know what is right and what is wrong in computer software development. There are flaws in this reasoning. For one thing, Google's smart person filter is imperfect. It sometimes rejects smart people and sometimes accepts stupid people. (By way of example, I was able to pass through it undetected.) The result is, Google does not in fact employ every smart person, and some of those they do employ are lazy and stupid just like those of us not employed by Google. However, Google coders do all share one common attribute: they do what they feel is best to advance their career. And that does not necessarily including putting a lot of energy into improving the Android code in areas that Google does not monetize.
