Confessions of a Google Employee

Friday, August 12, 2011


Before Google was Google, it was a research project by Stanford University graduate students Larry Page and Sergey Brin.  And before there was a Googleplex, its headquarters was a friend's garage in Menlo Park, California.  Fifteen years later, Google now has more than 28,000 employees and offices all over the world, and the search engine has become so much more than just search.  Doug Edwards is the former director of consumer marketing and brand management at Google and author of I'm Feeling Lucky: Confessions of Google Employee Number 59.  Brooke spoke with Edwards about witnessing Google's growth from the inside.

The term "black hats" has an unfortunate association to the ultra orthodox Jews who wear black hats and who are sometimes accused of disceptive practices. This term should be changed.
