What Will Happen to Your Company in 10 Years?

by | Sep 10, 2008 | Observations

Google turns 10 this week and in those short 10 years this company has grown from a small search engine to a full blown multimedia platform. How many companies can say they’ve become a verb in 10 years? How many times have you “Googled” something in the last week? I can’t remember the last time I “searched” the internet for an answer. Google has been very influential in our collective zeitgeist for the last 10 years.

Last week, they released their browser, Chrome, to mixed fanfare.

I haven’t yet talked to anyone who has downloaded and started using it yet. If you have, do you like it better than Internet Explorer or Firefox? What is the best feature? What is the worst feature?

I find the concept of Chrome intriguing. Will this usher in a new era of browsers? Will the current crop of browsers morph into something completely different, like when Netscape evolved into Mozilla Firefox?

Google does a lot of interesting things and I can’t wait to see where they go in the next 10 years.
