Here and Now Local News

Steven Levy chronicles the past and future of Google in his book, In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives.  While in Louisville for an evening talk at the library, he dropped by the WFPL studios to speak with Todd Mundt today during Here and Now. The two discussed Larry Page, who is back in the big chair as CEO. Levy talked about Google’s low-achievement with attempts to get social, but he says there’s development afoot that looks promising on that front. And how can a company growing so quickly avoid “evil?”
