Quick thoughts on Google culture – playful, serious, and mysterious

By January 1, 2007current affairs

This New York Times article talks about the playful culture at Google’s Manhattan office, a place infused with brainiacs who create new things like Google Finance, which seeks to rival Yahoo’s model.  Check out Google Finance’s ‘What’s new?’ video (a YouTube video, of course).  Financial investment is pretty serious stuff, but the playful video is not off-putting (at least not for young cyberjock investors). 

Say, speaking of cyberjock investors, what if you could figure out what stock the key financial players in Manhattan were interested in simply by having access to the search patterns in New York’s financial district?  Nah, that’d never happen.
