an interesting book that throws a different spin on google: it is the 'networking computing' compay.
eric schmidt was head of network computing at sun some time ago. if google can re-create the 'network is the computer' mantra from sun's glory days, that would be sweet vindication for schmidt. google is now becoming a web services company, and all the recent VC money is going into a) open source b) web services c) voip/video
no wonder google has just raised $4 billion through an IPO. this is a big war-chest for offering google-branded wifi access all over the us, after buying up dark fiber.
one chapter of this book is free to download. worth reading. the whole book (interestingly the book is only available in pdf for download) costs too much money to buy, some $180.
btw, i am planning to start a new technology blog and separate it from the shadow warrior stuff.
