Tune In, Sunday! (60 Minutes)



This Sunday evening (7 p.m., CBS), 60 Minutes will feature an in-depth profile on Google. It was a great pleasure to work closely with Lesley Stahl and her wonderful producer, Rome Hartman, to put this piece together. Hope you or your TiVo are able to catch it!

GOOGLE: The company that began as a school project six years ago is now worth about as much as Ford and General Motors combined. Lesley Stahl and 60 MINUTES cameras take viewers inside the campus of this Silicon Valley gem to reveal a laid-back environment that belies the super-competitive drive that has made it so successful.

3 Comments:

  • Google is bigger than Ford and General Motors combined, but someday will be bigger than Ford, General Motors, and even the Beanie Babies! Now, that would be more like it.

    Beanie = Google
    Google = Babies

    60 + Minutes = Google + Blogger

    60 + Minutes = Google + Keyhole

    Powered + by + Google = Keyhole + by + Google

    Powered + by + Google = Blogger + by + Google

    Powered + by + Google = Googlebot + Google

    Powered + by + Google = Googlebot + Picasa

  • David,

    Hope all is well at Google!

    Very well orchestrated documentary on 60 Minutes. You did fabulous work. It was very nice to see a few of your employees on television (Alan, Eric, Lair, Sir G., and Marissa...sorry if anyone was left out) and the pictures of the Googleplex, as well as the dog in the office :) That's great that you allow animals to join in the programming fun.

    Also, your menu is amazing, almost "as good as it gets" or like the food in the movie "Spanglish."

    Ping pong, T.Hanks, now don't get me started, but that's one of my favorite games next to juggling. Actually, juggling is like ping pong, as they're both great to play to improve your hand eye and eye hand coordination.

    The most intriguing part was the plasma screen which showed the points where everybody was searching from at any given moment. You must love working at the Googleplex.

    Sir G. has a mommy, too! Almost like my mom, she keeps requesting that I go back to college for my masters. It's nice to see Sir G is following his Google Dream, and someday we will do "THE GOOGLE DREAM" = "I'M FEELING LUCKY"

    If you haven't seen it, the movie "Spanglish" which is a Googlebot in my book, is produced by "AS GOOD AS IT GETS" = "I'M FEELING LUCKY" one to see.

    Keep up the greatness!
