A Fascinating Article on Google



Thursday’s Guardian carries a fascinating article on Google—how it began, how its search engine works, how it makes so much money, and what the future may hold. John Lanchester’s article is an edited version of an essay published in the London Review of Books here.

I enjoy the LRB as well as the NYRB, the latter for 4 decades now. On Google, you might want to check out the short piece in the Fin. Times by the economist, thomas Hazlett.

Like many "book reviews" in the London Review of Books, this "book review" provides the occasion for a thoughtful and informative essay about Google. And, as I mentioned in my original post, the article in today's Guardian is an edited version of the essay in the London Review of Books. I encourage people to read the longer version in the LRB as well as the shorter version in the Guardian.
