Journey to the (revolutionary, evil-hating, cash-crazy, and possibly self-destructive) center of Google

Highlight — John Heilemann wrote a fairly long article on Google’s adolescence.

He concludes:

When crisis eventually comes to Google — and it will — the company’s fate will depend on whether they have absorbed a handful of lessons that apply as much to life as they do to business: Adulthood happens. You can’t make all your own rules. And everyone fucks up.

This conclusion inspired me because I recalled this adulthood definition I once bumped into: You are adult the day you no longer take your dreams for reality, but take the reality for your dreams instead. And this is what the Google adolescence article is all about.
