Google’s Story

[via John Battelle] has a fascianting story about Google: “The rise of Google is a tale often told as a Silicon Valley classic. Two precocious Stanford grad-student nerds swept up in the fever of the Internet boom invent technology that profoundly changes the experience of the Web; they drop out and start a company (in a garage) that achieves iconic status; they stage a historic public offering, achieving vast wealth and fame…But beneath these familiar surface details, the Google story is more nuanced and compelling. Its a story about the clash between youth and experience, more a messy ensemble drama than a simple buddy flickone whose main characters have persistently deviated from any script, resulting in unexpected twists and turns that havent come to light until now.”
