Inside The Mind Of Google 2 years 2 months ago #21013

When you all have free time, this video is about inside of Google in how they run there company. Tell me your opinion. Behavior and Artifacts, Values, and Core Assumptions. I've been writing a paper on it and completed it and I thought it would be great to see how other people see Google as.

My homepage is Google and the reason for that is it's incredibly uncluttered and therefore loads quickly.
I don't search stuff for things like porn terrorism etc. but if I was a student studying these things I would be doubly sure I was not a signed in member and definitely would not use google chrome.
Google Chrome seems to be a little more sus as the address bar is also the search bar.
People tend to become paranoid about the internet but where would we be without search engines? How many questions have been answered by words in a search engine? How many lonely.. handicapped..housebound (now my commas' not working lol) people have had their lives changed and made better by the internet and the ease of looking something up quickly (far better than a funk & Wagnalls). :soapbox:
I think it's like the bloke in the story (CEO) said...if it's something you would not like others to know you are looking up then don't!

Well worth the watch. Everyone should watch. Will really wake you up and make you view all the devices laying all around you in whole new way. I would like to trust them but I don't think we can. As I look around me I have PC's, laptops, phones, GPS devices and TV''s all embeded with Google search. I've sat and watched my 80 year old father search Google and neighbors. Friends in cars and while dining & shopping using Google. It's part of our lives. They already have collected enough information about us. It's already to late because they have our most private thoughts right off our own fingertips to research forever and I bet you some group is poring over everything in some hidden vault owned by the government as we speak. I don't believe it when they say after 18 months your info can't be traced back to you. Note how nervous he gets in the video when she pushes him about her own personal info. He knows that info will never be lost and is well hidden. It's written all over his face.

All we can do is hope they use the info collected from us to help future generations and use it wisely, that it never falls into bad hands. This is a very large report because she try's to cover all the aspects of Google and how it effects our lives. Google owns our private thoughts now not our local church or family as it was in the past. Just think how often you use Google. We ask it everything we privately think and then it responds to us with the finest details. What more could the human mind desire.

Scenario: Imagine if I could get hold of my fathers list of every Google term he ever searched in his adult life at the time of his death or any family member for that matter. This is likely to come soon as people will want to know what loved ones were searching and thinking after they're gone. Maybe in the future you could demand this info be turned over if only for the purpose of research. Do we own the private thoughts and Google search file of those who have left us could be the big fight. Look around the room where you are where you work where you shop and just imagine being able to buy the Google search information of anyone around you. Scary part is if someday it becomes public record. Not likely to happen but the possibility is there.

Good luck with your paper Coolnet.

Five years from now... thats an interesting thought. In five years they could be where AOL is right now. They could ahve taken over the world by then! Moo ha ha!

Then again I recall seeing a story many years about the 'juggernaut' that was AOL!

The 'free food' thing sounds good to me! Heck, I want to be a cog in the Google machine too!

You also have to consider the source of this new report as well. What was left in, what was left out to meed the needs of thier netowrk.

Travel Channel report:


Discovery Channel (quite a few years old now)


Google Culture


And now introducing the new Google Toilet (may be a bit tacky!)



of course... I used Google to find these videos... so who knows what is being filtered out.

The Google knows! Moo ha ha!

First I'll acknowledge that since I work in the tech industry, there is a non-zero chance that I end up at Google, HOWEVER.

I think they are an awful company. Even if they could have kept there 'Do No Evil' mantra, that's a back asswards slippery slope. And in my mind, whatever good they do is obliterated by the bad.

"Do no wrong' is NOT the same thing as "Do the right thing". In fact there is a HUGE area to maneuver between those two phrases.

I've seen many friends and colleagues drink the google kool-aid, and while I am happy that they have such exciting opportunities, I HATE being a product. and I HATE depending on their software services (anyone who thinks Google is to big to fail is wishing upon a star). They made a partial start with the Data Liberation Team...not that you could do much with the data once you have it.

Yes, I use google services, I also use Amazon cloud (equally awful company), Facebook (one of the WORST) and lots of other services and products (Apple) I have huge issues with. Because there are not suitable options for replacements.... Yet.
I get it that they are a company and I don't fault them their opportunity to profit, but greed and success push them to do things that just seem evil.

The next few years could be a pretty amazing ride with strong chances for major change-ups in the technology sector. I wish Google all the success they can muster, as soon as they stop throwing us under the bus.

That's true. In the begining they are okay, but once they recieve soo much money all they want is more money. I am worried that our government wont be able to control the major corps.
