Nick Carr and Philipp Lenssen are two of my favorite bloggers. Nick quotes Philipp in his latest article : roughtype.com/archives/2006/05 ...

I covered the wonderful Synapse in my blogosphere on my blog :

Here's everything he wrote if you're looking to save time:

"But what you see on the surface is just what they choose to show you," says [Google Blogoscope's Philipp] Lenssen. "It's like they are holding a magnet beneath a table. All you see is a metal ball moving around on top. Because you can't see the magnet, you assume the ball is moving randomly." Less colorfully put, because Google's strength lies not in the applications it shows the world but in the architecture it doesn't, the company's business strategy is not readily apparent. But according to Lenssen, people who look at Google and see nothing more than random growth are making a big mistake. Most of the high-tech industry is just starting to realize this.
