๐Ÿ“‘ โ€œGoogle Was Not a Normal Placeโ€: Brin, Page, and Mayer on the Accidental Birth of the Company that Changed Everything

Bookmarked โ€œGoogle Was Not a Normal Placeโ€: Brin, Page, and Mayer on the Accidental Birth of the Company that Changed Everything by Adam Fisher (The Hive)
A behind-the-scenes account of the most important company on the Internet, from grad-school all-nighters, space tethers, and Burning Man to the โ€œeigenvector of a matrix,โ€ humongous wealth, and extraordinary power.
I really didn’t know how to read this attempt at some sort of truth from those who were there.

This oral history, gathered from a mix of original reporting and previously published and unpublished reflections, is an excerpt from Valley of Genius: The Uncensored History of Silicon Valley (as Told by the Hackers, Founders, and Freaks Who Made It Boom), published by Twelve.

Is it meant to discredit Google as just another misogynistic Silicon Valley startup? Why now? Are there any biases at play as there was with Quinn Norton’s doppelganger. I am reminded of Faulkner’s quote:

The past is never dead. It’s not even past.
