Google Gets It!

I’d love to work for a company that “gets it” as much as google seems to.

10 things Google has found to be true

  1. Focus on the user and all else will follow.
  2. It’s best to do one thing really, really well.
  3. Fast is better than slow.
  4. Democracy on the web works.
  5. You don’t need to be at your desk to need an answer.
  6. You can make money without doing evil.
  7. There’s always more information out there.
  8. The need for information crosses all borders.
  9. You can be serious without a suit.
  10. Great just isn’t good enough.

Amen. Amen. Google has defined the user search engine on the Web. And everyday.... and I mean everyday... I use them to perform my daily tasks.

hmm...what's the new login feature all about? (and yes, i realize i'm putting this under the "google" post... hehe).

the login is just for me right now... but, i'm thinking of doing a metafilter style community blog. i need to code up the registration page and a few other misc. things. it may or may not happen, i've been pretty lazy with my home programming tasks.

i'm in total agreement as well. google gets "it". and they run it on linux, which is another plus in my book!
