On Google

We'll take a look at one of the most successful post-bubble internet companies: Google. It's a major success as a brand and a business, as a director of traffic and as a nearly ubiquitous middle-man. How does Google create so much wealth? Why does it continue to grow and reap massive profits? And what of its editorial and political policies? From the Un-Distinguished Lecture Series (http://ws.cs.ubc.ca/~udls/). The talk was given Jul. 13, 2007.
