The Fall and Rise of Larry Page

schnell (163007) writes | about 4 months ago


schnell (163007) writes "Slate's has a long, detailed story about how Larry Page founded Google, how he struggled with its growth, and ultimately how he came back to reinvigorate it. The story recounts fascinating details about Page's relationship to Sergey Brin, the combative culture Page fostered in the company's early years, his resistance to having engineers managed by non-engineers, the company's struggle through its rapid growth, and how Page once even wanted to hire Steve Jobs as Google's CEO."

Not a Slate piece (1)

This story originally appeared on Business Insider: [] Slate is merely republishing it by agreement with BI. The URL and text should reflect that.

Also, the piece itself isn't particularly noteworthy. It mostly collects a bunch of anecdotes from published books about Google by Steven Levy and others, and there's not much new about it.
