Google has altered the world we live in with a profound impact on just about everything we do. In addition to the search engine, Google has given us many other products including YouTube, Google Earth, GMail, Chrome and the Android operating system for cell phones. It is now difficult to remember a time when we didnt have Google, an essential tool in todays world of commerce, education, government and social interaction. The search engine they created delves through trillions of documents in a fraction of a second. According to Jonathan Zittrain of Harvard Law School it places Sergey Brin and Larry Page as “the traffic cop at the main intersection of the information society . . . . They have an awesome responsibility.” Award-winning author Daniel Alef tells the remarkable story of Sergey, Larry and Google in this CoreView biographical profile and discusses their responsibility as gatekeepers to the Internet.
