With thousands of employees at Google spending 20% of their time working on a pet project, we will continue to see new services rolling out of Google like a flood.
It’s not part of a big top-down world domination strategy on the part of Google’s founders. I heard Larry Page say at his CES Keynote that his ability to predict what Google is going to do next is zero. It’s just part of a massively well funded and empowering and innovative world changing business culture.
I think Google will be the world’s leading innovation machine for many years.
Google’s unprecedented empowerment of thousands of smart engineers, and its ability to fund hundreds of promising projects and then to roll the best ones out with virtually no marketing expense to hundreds of millions of users worldwide will enable Google to get into scores of information, advertising and software businesses, all under one umbrella.
The recent Google sell-off is likely just a temporary blip, since long term this company will be wildly successful as the world’s leading information company.
