With Larry Page now running Google, it also gives a preview of things to come. That it, expect things at Google to change more rapidly than they have before, because he isn't very concerned with investors or hitting profit targets, he wants to change the world. That means he is into doing risky things.
You won't be disappointed by the book. The last part drags a bit - gets bogged down by the issues around Google wanting to scan every book in the world - but the rest of the book is great.
mkelly, was this in the book? I might buy it after all. I am trying to understand the Google earnings increase under Larry, perfectly coupled with the decrease of traffic to all of non-Google sites [webmasterworld.com...] --28% increase in a year and 16% in 3 months. Could they have some sort of self-learning algorithm test to see how the world changes as they take more and more money via Google ads at our expense?
