A Peek 'In the Plex,' By Steven Levy

on 05 Sep  Posted by Admin  Category: Internet Related

As promised, this week I’ll be doing a quick review of Steven Levy’s book, In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works and Shapes Our Lives.

As a tech jour­nal­ist, Levy had a per­spec­tive on Google that few have enjoyed. John Bat­telle, who pre­vi­ous tack­led Google in his book The Search, said, “I had lim­ited access to folks at Google, and *really* lim­ited access to Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Levy had the oppo­site, spend­ing more than two years inside the com­pany and see­ing any num­ber of things that jour­nal­ists would have killed to see in years past.”
