In the plex : how Google thinks, works, and shapes our lives by Steven Levy( Book )
15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 2,014 libraries worldwide
Written with full cooperation from top management at Google, this is the story behind the most successful and admired technology company of our time. Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? The author, a technology reporter was granted access to the company, and in this book he takes readers inside Google headquarters, the Googleplex to show how Google works. While they were still students at Stanford, Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin revolutionized Internet search. They followed this brilliant innovation with another, as two of Google's earliest employees found a way to do what no one else had: make billions of dollars from Internet advertising. With this cash cow (until Google's IPO nobody other than Google management had any idea how lucrative the company's ad business was), Google was able to expand dramatically and take on other transformative projects: more efficient data centers, open source cell phones, free Internet video (YouTube), cloud computing, digitizing books, and much more. The key to Google's success in all these businesses, the author reveals, is its engineering mind set and adoption of such Internet values as speed, openness, experimentation, and risk taking. After its unapologetically elitist approach to hiring, Google pampers its engineers, free food and dry cleaning, on site doctors and masseuses, and gives them all the resources they need to succeed. Even today, with a workforce of more than 23,000, Larry Page signs off on every hire. But has Google lost its innovative edge? It stumbled badly in China, and the author discloses what went wrong and how Brin disagreed with his peers on the China strategy. And now with its newest initiative, social networking, Google is chasing a successful competitor for the first time. Some employees are leaving the company for smaller, nimbler start ups. Can the company that famously decided not to be evil still compete?
Hackers : heroes of the computer revolution by Steven Levy( Book )
75 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,672 libraries worldwide
"This 25th anniversary edition of Steven Levy's classic book traces the exploits of the computer revolution's original hackers---those brilliant and eccentric nerds from the late 1950s through the early ̀80s who took risks, bent the rules, and pushed the world in a radical new direction. With updated material from noteworthy hackers such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Stallman, and Steve Wozniak, Hackers is a fascinating story that begins in early computer research labs and leads to the first home computers." "Levy profiles the imaginative brainiacs who found clever and unorthodox solutions to computer engineering problems. They had a shared sense of values, known as "the Hacker Ethic," that still thrives today. Hackers captures a seminal period in recent history when underground activities blazed a trail for today's digital world, from MIT students finagling access to clunky computer-card machines to the DIY culture that spawned the Altair and the Apple II." "If you want to change the world in some big way, that's where you should start---biological molecules. Those are all pretty deep problems that need the same type of crazy fanaticism of youthful genius and naiveté that drove the PC industry, and can have the same impact on the human condition."--Bill Gates, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation"--Jacket

Googlenomics : Wie Google denkt, arbeitet und unser Leben verändert by Steven Levy( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Nur wenige Unternehmen waren im Laufe der Geschichte so erfolgreich und gleichzeitig umstritten wie Google. Dem Autor Steven Levy wurde in bisher noch nie dagewesenem Umfang Zugang zum Unternehmen gestattet. In diesem aufschlussreichen Buch nimmt er die Leser mit in die Google-Zentrale, das Googleplex, um zu zeigen, wie Google arbeitet. Wie Levy enthüllt, liegt der Schlüssel zum Google-Erfolg einerseits in der technischen Denkweise sowie in der Ausübung typischer "Internet-Werte" wie Geschwindigkeit, Offenheit, Experimentier- und Risikofreude. Hat Google aber vielleicht seinen innovativen Biss verloren? In China ist es schwer gestolpert und Levy deckt auf, was dort schiefgelaufen ist und wie sich Brin und seine Kollegen bei der China-Strategie nicht einig waren. Und nun jagt Google bei seiner jüngsten Initiative, den sozialen Netzwerken, erstmals einem erfolgreichen Konkurrenten hinterher. Einige Mitarbeiter verlassen mittlerweile das Unternehmen in Richtung kleinerer, wendigerer Startups. Kann Google, das den berühmten Entschluss gefasst hat, nicht böse sein zu wollen, weiter wettbewerbsfähig bleiben? Kein anderes Buch konnte bisher die Google-Interna derart offenlegen, wie dieses Buch
