Trilogy, Google, Netflix, Zynga - most entrepreneurial alumni networks?

What do these companies have in common? Well FounderDating just released a list of the companies that have the most entrepreneurial company alumni networks and they are all in the top 10 -http://members.founderdating.com/company/index(Jessica does alonger explanationand methodology) here. I'm curious to hear which ones are surprising to see on the list and which companies you expected to see that you don't?

Personally, I was surprised to see Yahoo above Google and not to see Amazon on the list.

I was surprised to see Google at all. All the googlers I've ever met (or ever heard of, except for Marissa Mayer, of course) seemed exceedingly happy with their work and never dreamed of leaving Google to become entrepreneurs. At least that's what they said. Makes you wonder...

I'm surprised Microsoft isn't on the list. As a former softie (1900's) I've seen a bunch of others develop success in the ecosystem -- besides Expedia which was more of a spinout.

Trilogy has had a huge impact on the Austin scene. Much of the tech leadership in successful Austin-founded companies (Bazaarvoice, HomeAway, RetailMeNot, etc) are ex-Trilogy. And out of Bazaarvoice has come Mass Relevance, Compare Metrics, Together Mobile, and more.
