With David’s book as well. It’s a combo deal. Ugh. I knew that was going to happen. But I’m pleased with it, regardless. From it:
“The Google Story” and “The Search” cast those accomplishments in opposite lights. While they overlap considerably – and while both books flatter Google with covers that mimic its brilliantly modest logo – they interpret Google’s ethics and future prospects differently. The sky’s the limit in “The Google Story,” a glowing, sometimes credulous testament to “that Googley sense of magic.” Mr. Battelle takes a more knowing, technical approach and is more inclined to look for trouble.
I’ll take that.
OK, on to the FT awards. A fun day in London today. What a swell city….

This one was less kind to Vise and Malseed:
Finished The Search a couple of weeks ago, and just starting The Google Story. The Search is infinitely more sophisticated and insightful – to the point that I find the The Google Story significantly less credible (and interesting).
Nice piece. I enjoyed it.
Ive never seen such an overly biased blog. Why dont you call it the google blog?
I’ve always seen Yahoo (through Goto/Overture) as *the* true innovator in the business of search.
Without Goto pioneering the way with CPC in the 90’s would Google be public?
Moreover, would it even exist?
Personally, i doubt it.
