In this article, the writer discusses that one of the most successful online entities created since the rise of the Internet is the online search engine Google, a company that has a unique style of corporate governance, just as it has developed a strikingly different and varying business model for its search engine, its core business, and also for the many spin-offs it has instituted around that business. The writer studies the Google company and examines its corporate governance. The writer notes that Google was never the only search engine offered on the Internet, but it soon became the most popular and the most effective, so much so that the name of the company itself has become a noun used by millions of people for the very act of looking something up on the Internet. The writer points out that like many computer technology companies, Google from the first had a certain iconoclastic sense of its mission, of its relationship to its users, of its offerings, and of its form of governance.
