Controversy. The world of news seems to thrive on it, including the world of tech news.
Ever wonder what goes on inside a premier tech company like Google?
I just finished listening to “In The Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives” written by Steven Levy and narrated by L.J. Ganser.
“In The Plex” is all about Google – it’s employees, it’s business culture, and even it’s cafeterias. Additionally it includes behind-the-scenes accounts of major Google controversies most people will remember.
Google is one of those remarkable “Great American Company” stories that happened right under our noses within the past decade.
The unabridged “In The Plex” Audible audiobook version is 19 hours long. The narration is top-notch and the content quite entertaining. It ends with a discussion of Google’s sometimes-tumultuous, sometimes ho-hum social networking forays, along with a brief discussion of the development of “Google+” which has recently gone into a controlled roll-out to the general public.
If you were ever curious about the company behind the search engine, I recommend “In The Plex” as a means of sating that inquisitive urge.
