Dodgeball, a Google owned mobile social networking site, has just received a jolt as its founder quit out of frustration. Dennis Crowley and Alex Rainert left Google out of frustration since they were unable to convince Google that Dodgeball was worth engineering resource.

Dennis writes on his blog: The whole experience was incredibly frustrating for us – especially as we couldn’t convince them that dodgeball was worth engineering resources, leaving us to watch as other startups got to innovate in the mobile + social space.

Google acquired Dodgeball in May 2005. It is actually quite well known that Google never promoted Dodgeball. How much more could the creators have endured. The only time when Dodgeball was in talk was at the time when it was acquired, otherwise there was no news that even existed.
