The Google Story is the definitive account of one of the most remarkable organizations of our time. Every day over sixty-four million people use Google in more than one hundred languages, running billions of searches for information on everything and anything. Through the creative use of cutting-edge technology and a series of groundbreaking business ideas, Google's thirty-five year old founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, have in ten years taken Google from being just another internet start-up to a company with a market value of over US$80 billion. Based on scrupulous research and extraordinary access to the inner workings of Google, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, David A. Vise's extraordinary book takes you inside the creation and growth of a company that has become so familiar its name is used as a verb around the world. But even as it rides high, Google wrestles with difficult challenges in a business that changes at lightning speed. In this updated edition to celebrate Google’s 10th birthday, David A. Vise has written a new preface and new final chapter which look at further developments since 2005 and how Google will continue to expand and innovate while trying to follow its founders' mantra: DO NO EVIL

Soon they began working together on a project to download the entire World Wide Web and figure out a way to search it using links, as a possible doctoral thesis. Many budget and design issues later, Google became an officially incorporated company. We bring you the story about the origins, leaders, growth and products of Google, the Internet company that was founded in 1998 and is today the world’s favorite online search engine.

"Die Zahl1t zu erforschen bedeutet, das Universum zu erforschen ... » David Chudnovsky " ... oder eher die Tiefen des Meeres auszuloten, denn wir befinden uns unter Wasser, und alles scheint ohne Form zu sein. Wir brauchen eine Lampe, und unser Computer ist diese Lampe.» Gregory Chudnovsky 11: = 3,14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 ... Die Zahl 1t steht im Mittelpunkt eines außergewöhnlich großen Bereiches der Mathematik. Dieser Bereich ist so groß, daß niemand ihn jemals vollständig erforschen wird. Dieses Buch streift im Zeitraffer durch die Geschichte der Zahl 1t und zeigt Ihnen auf unterhaltsame Weise, daß die Mathematiker - nach 4000 Jahren Arbeit und vielen wunderbaren Entdeckungen - immer noch neue Eigenschaften von 1t finden. Ungeachtet des bisher angehäuften Wissens bleibt diese funken sprühende Zahl geheimnisvoll, und manche der elementaren Fragen über rr scheinen sogar jenseits der Reichweite der heutigen Mathematik zu sein. Um die Zahl 1t gruppieren sich viele Teilgebiete der Mathematik, denen Sie hier begegnen. Hierzu gehören: - die Geometrie, denn wir dürfen niemals vergessen, daß 1t seinen Ursprung in den Überlegungen der antiken Geometer hatte. Auch heute noch haben wir unsere Freude an den scharfsinnigen Konstruktionen mit Zirkel und Lineal, die Generationen von Mathematikern mit Besessenheit erfüllt haben.

What is the essence of story? How does the storyteller convey meaning? Leading scholar Harold Scheub tackles these questions and more, demonstrating that the power of story lies in emotion. While others have focused on the importance of structure in the art of story, Scheub emphasizes emotion. He shows how an expert storyteller uses structural elements—image, rhythm, and narrative—to shape a story's fundamental emotional content. The storyteller uses traditional images, repetition, and linear narrative to move the audience past the story’s surface of morals and ideas, and make connections to their past, present, and future. To guide the audience on this emotional journey is the storyteller’s art. The traditional stories from South African, Xhosa, and San cultures included in the book lend persuasive support to Scheub’s. These stories speak for themselves, demonstrating that a skilled performer can stir emotions despite the obstacles of space, time, and culture.

Now a New York Times bestseller The 2017 American Book Award Winner from the Before Columbus Foundation A Washington Post notable nonfiction book for 2016 A Goodreads Best of 2016 Nonfiction Finalist A Kobo Best Book of 2016 Includes an update from Rabia on Adnan's vacated murder conviction in summer 2016 Serial only told part of the story... In early 2000, Adnan Syed was convicted and sentenced to life plus thirty years for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee, a high school senior in Baltimore, Maryland. Syed has maintained his innocence, and Rabia Chaudry, a family friend, has always believed him. By 2013, after almost all appeals had been exhausted, Rabia contacted Sarah Koenig, a producer at This American Life, in hopes of finding a journalist who could shed light on Adnan’s story. In 2014, Koenig's investigation turned into Serial, a Peabody Award-winning podcast with more than 500 million international listeners But Serial did not tell the whole story. In this compelling narrative, Rabia Chaudry presents new key evidence that she maintains dismantles the State's case: a potential new suspect, forensics indicating Hae was killed and kept somewhere for almost half a day, and documentation withheld by the State that destroys the cell phone evidence -- among many other points -- and she shows how fans of Serial joined a crowd-sourced investigation into a case riddled with errors and strange twists. Adnan's Story also shares Adnan’s life in prison, and weaves in his personal reflections, including never-before-seen letters. Chaudry, who is committed to exonerating Adnan, makes it clear that justice is yet to be achieved in this much examined case.
