Google story

Book Review   by:ramleela     Original Author: David A.Vise
ª
 
The google story is remarkable for several reasons.The author has taken pains to chronicle the rise of this corporate giant in various phases.the language is subtle and the treatment of the theme individual-centred as well as corporate focused.The phenomenon is viewed against the backdrop of the land of opportunity that is called America. The irreverent tone suits the subject as well as the theme.one fact mentioned in the book needs updating.one of the founders has since gone to Harvard to complete his education.And his mom must be happier for that. A few paragraphs would provide us the drift of the great enterprise. “ no enterprise has more computing power than google with its network of garden variety PCs on steroids. The company’s name has become a verb in English and several other languages. “Having a healthy disregard for the impossible,you should try to do things that most people would not.” Founders Brin and Page wanted no one to come between them or interfere in any way.The combination of dependence on each other and independence from everyone else had cont5ibuted immeasurably to their astounding success. At google it is a combination of scientific skills,and mathematical skills and computer skills and also very strong skills about how to get people excited about their work.
The key to google success was breaking down complex tasks into smaller chunks that could be handled simultaneously. Burning Man is an excursion into the unknown. The founders and their pals have made it to this ritual every year. It is “fleeing the ordinary limits of society to return to this temporarily autonomous zone in Nevada desert. Google has something special for employees. A rule that software engineers spend at least 20 per cent of their time working on whatever projects interested them And if something is worth doing, it gets funded. They are onto googling the knowledge banks in libraries, tracing the genetic breakthrough in labs and absorbed in ways to increase brainpower. Google is a shining chapter in human enterprise. Shows ho far we could triumph if we have fire in our bellies.
