I don't think all of that is true. Google are very good at attracting the innovative thinkers to their company. Had they been at others at least some of those things might have been developed at other companies or startups.

Splasho, with a wide dispersion of those innovative thinkers, the chances are little. At the very least, the products would have come into the market a lot later than they did. Don't forget, these innovative thinkers were also given the necessary platform and the time. Not to mention the money-power and the might of Google standing behind them.

If google didn't exist, someone else might have stepped up and created at least parts of it. The problem is would the other have forced its competition to improve their offerings so quickly?

If Google didn't exist, we'd be happily using AltaVista, not knowing what we're missing.

I think Google was meant to Exist and to Survive.

If it doesn't exist at all, I think at least some other people and same investors will run a similar project but it will have slower entrance to the market.

I would have still called my son Oliver Google Kai.

I guess, that is only too true.

I would'nt say "we'd be happily using AltaVista"; more like grudenly searching through pages and pages of meta feeds :(

There's a brilliant guy at Guardian who has some strong opinions:

blogs.guardian.co.uk/technolog ...

While entertaining and thought-provoking, it is also funamentally misguided, and most of the claims seem to me obviously wrong.

* we would find a mail by manually reviewing each subject and sender.

This is patent rubbish. There have been mail clients with search facilities going back to the 1980s, and today, Google isn't even the best way to search email.

* we would pay for software like Picasa, Keyhole (now Google Earth), Sketchup.

Also rubbish. It's nice of Google to buy these companies and give their products away, but Google didn't invent free software.

From what I remember Yahoo and Hotmail had lousy search before Gmail (Windows Live Mail still tries to do it well).

Who said Google invented free software?

I don't know who found this post (Garett Rogers I think), but it would've been better if no one read it. So many stupid comments.
