This is an episode of REVOLUTIONARIES, a co-production of the Computer History Museum and KQED television, with major sponsorship by Intel. Recorded: January 27, 2011, originally broadcast on April 8, 2012
Few companies in history have ever been as successful and admired as Google, the startup that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes readers inside Google headquarters -- the Googleplex -- to show how Google works.
The Computer History Museum is pleased to be the first stop on Levy's book tour, and to have Stephen Levy and interviewer Laura Sydell -- who have both been reporting on Google for over a decade -- on our stage to examine Google from the inside out. Their conversation is wide ranging -- including a look at Google's many successful businesses -- due in large part according to Levy to its engineering mindset, and adoption of Internet values like speed, openness, experimentation and risk-taking. They also discuss whether Google has lost its innovative edge, its stumble in China, its newest initiative in social networking where it's chasing a successful competitor for the first time...and much more.
This event was sponsored by Intel and is part of the Computer History Museum's 2011 Revolutionaries lecture series sponsored by Intel, featuring conversations with and about some of the most distinguished thinkers in the computing field.
