Google Minus 10 Years

Here’s what it looked like then. The stats are fun, too. But here is the best page.

Hat tip to James Altucher’s Daily Blog Watch. Between DBW and Stockpickr, it looks like my friend James has kinda taken over TheStreet.com. As I’ve said before, James is an amazing guy. He was going to be one of the main characters in a book I was writing about the psychology of money, a book I wound up abandoning when Freakonomics came along. I wrote only one chapter, which was primarily about James. Maybe, with his permission, I will post it here or elsewhere some day, but I have to look it over first to see if it’s terrible.

I can't get over how much the internet - and hence the world - has changed in the last decade. Truly incredible.

10 years? I remember when Google only took punch cards.

Every fan of Google needs to read The Google Story. It pretty much kicks ass.

There is a great article about Google's latest project - Google Books - in the New Yorker (last week I think?). It also ties loosely to your post about how books are never pirated... check it out. (Sorry, I don't have a link)

Using the "Way Back Machine" at: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.google.com you can view Google as it has grown from it's BETA search engine stage to the current one.

The most read research paper in history of search engines is the "Anatomy of Search Engines" by Sergey Brin and Lawrence Page.

James Altucher is an intransigent genius.
