I've been gone too long

Summer Dave and Mr. Zmom have dominated this space of late, but thought I should jump in here with this doozy. It's as Gheorghe as it gets:

Kudos to Shlara, who I believe sent me this yesterday. It can also be found here.

and speaking of ghoogle machine - another book review request to dave ((the first was the situation's book (jersey shore) which he has cowardly avoided)) would be the google book - "In The Plex"

Danimal said...

i'm sorry for your problems z. it isn't your fault. hang in there little buddy.

Dave said...

just read "in the plex" moments ago:

Thoroughly versed in technology reporting, Wired senior writer Levy deliberates at great length about online behemoth Google and creatively documents the company’s genesis from a 'feisty start-up to a market-dominating giant.' The author capably describes Google’s founders, Stanford grads Larry Page and Sergey Brin, as sharp, user-focused and steadfastly intent on 'organizing all the world’s information.' Levy traces how Google’s intricately developed, intrepid beginnings and gradual ascent over a competitive marketplace birthed an advertising-fueled 'money machine' (especially following its IPO in 2004), and he follows the expansion and operation of the company’s liberal work campus ('Googleplex') and its distinctively selective hiring process (Page still signs off on every new hire). The author was afforded an opportunity to observe the company’s operations, development, culture and advertising model from within the infrastructure for two years with full managerial cooperation. From there, he performed hundreds of interviews with past and current employees and discovered the type of 'creative disorganization' that can either make or break a business. Though clearly in awe of Google’s crowning significance, Levy evenhandedly notes the company’s more glaring deficiencies, like the 2004 cyber-attack that forced the removal of the search engine from mainland China, a decision vehemently unsupported by co-founder Brin. Though the author offers plenty of well-known information, it’s his catbird-seat vantage point that really gets to the good stuff.

Dave said...

t.j. i started that article thinking it was insane, but now i actually agree-- we need to embrace the mushroom death suit.

Danimal said...

thanks.

Shlara said...

Love this video
And I used to think that Rory was a nice unaffected young man until I saw this scoop about Carol over the weekend.
Now I realize he's just a regular dude.
I hope he has more sense than Tiger

Mark said...

So wanting to upgrade your significant other situation early in your 20s when your fame/wealth make that relatively easy excludes you "nice young man" status? Good to know. Not many "nice young men" out there, I'd imagine.

i'm staying in the same hotel as the national baptist deacon conference. this is a world with which i'm unfamiliar.

in unrelated news, i made the greatest birdie of my undistinguished golf career today. fanned a tee shot on the 11th hole so badly that the ball came to rest in the fringe on the 12th green, leaving me 200 yards from the pin with trees in the way. hit a low punch hybrid through a gap in the trees to about 30 feet and drained the putt. yeah, that's right.
