/200810OctCovBrin108w.jpg1. Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google
----Along with Larry Page, Sergey Brin, brought Google to life in September 1998. By April 2001, Brin moved into his role as technology president, heading 200 employees.
----As of November 2, 2007. the company stock was selling for $711.25 per share, up from over $500 last November, 2006.
---- It was on August 19, 2004 that Google raised $1.67 billion in their IPO efforts, making Google worth more than $23 billion. In June 2004, Google had 2,292 workers.
----Sergey continues to share responsibility for Google's day-to-day operations with both Eric Schmidt and Larry Page. CLICK FOR TIMELINE
AT A GLANCE: Name origin: A play on "googol," the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros.
IPO: Aug. 19, 2004; raised $1.67 billion, making Google worth more than $23 billion
Current market value: $177 billion
2006 revenue: $10.6 billion
Employees: 15,916 full-time employees as of October 2007. In June 2004, Google had 2,292 workers. Employees are "Googlers"; new workers, "Nooglers"; and former employees, "Xooglers."
The hiring binge continued throughout October, when Google added 2,130 employees, bringing its staff to 15,916. The additions included 1,000 hires out of college and 300 employees Google picked up in its $625-million acquisition of e-mail company Postini Inc.
In an interview, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said Google would scale back on hiring, stating,"You cannot turn on a dime."
The Google co-founders give credit to their experiments and their affiliated profit sharing program. With those project, they have discovered the new ways to distribute ads, including in videos from Google's YouTube subsidiary, in interactive widgets and on television through its partner EchoStar Communications Corp. Brin highlights their big success in the way Google sells ads on mobile phones, particularly in Asia -- a possible prelude to an announcement of a mobile operating system or even the often-rumored "Gphone."
Brin at this date, remains confident that regulators would approve Google's $3.1-billion acquisition of DoubleClick Inc., an online ad placement service that would further bolster efforts to dominate online advertising.
On October 19, 2007 -- Google's stock had a market value just shy of $200 billion, Google edged past Cisco Systems Inc. as Silicon Valley's most valuable company. The day ended at $639.62 per share, then gained $3.28 more in after-hours trading.
As Brin sees it, Google's profit jumped 46% to $1.07 billion because of the 57% rise in revenue to $4.23 billion, "propelled by simple text ads on Web pages."
••• Brad Adgate, director of research for Horizon Media, which helps advertisers buy TV ads, confirmed Brin's predictions about Google trend setting events in selling more ads in the mainstream media. In striking a deal for Nielsen Co., Google will be enabled to obtain detailed information about the kinds of people who watch specific TV shows.
••• The breakdown, drawn from Nielsen's rating service, typically provides viewers' ages, gender, marital status and other personal data that help advertisers choose the audience most likely to be interested in their product or service.
••• The set-top "bunny boxes" used by EchoStar and Astound have enabled Google to track when commercials were watched and for how long. By drawing on Nielsen's data, Google will now have information on what kinds of viewers watch a particular commercial. "This was a missing piece of the puzzle for us."
••• The Google Nielsen deal is an experiment to extend Google's reach into such digital media such as iPods and cellphones. SEE MORE "Bunny Box" STORY - FREE ANALOG TV ENDS

2006/ImagesPersonOfTheWeek/72SergeyBrinpow0405p46w.jpg3. Editor's Note / Google - Pasadena
---"The first time I heard the names Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and Google, was around Pasadena, California, in 1996," says Entertainer, tviNews ePublisher Troy Cory. "Google -- was just a small search engine ready to stream itself out of old town".
----The unique name was just a dream come true when in 1998, the two founders put their college studies on hold to evolute Google into one of the world's most important billion dollar organization.
----Of course, that meant, "a timeout" to raise capital, based on their theory that their Web Zeitgeist was brewing the juices needed to stimulate the busy Go-To "tech minds" working in "old town" -- on Pasadena Avenue. Go-To at the time, literally was the guiding spirit and pulse of the browser business.
----The Pasadena browser development team at Go-To guided me to a story about my China adventures. The Google story was about the rock 'n roll group that was my back-up and featured band in China. "In fact", continued Troy, "at that time, the Google site still looked like a browser catering to kids."
---- The chat room Bonhomie Baby storyline read read somethng like this:
"In 1990 the band toured the People's Republic of China along with the Troy Cory Show playing in front of over 64,000 people in five shows. The climax of the tour came when Bonhomie Baby played two sold-out shows at the Peking Coliseum in front of 22,000 per night." http://smart90.com/bonhomiebaby/ ABOUT BUSH BABIES Bonhomie Baby was founded in July of 1988. The Band was originally called "Bushbaby" but that name was sold to Warner Bros. in 1994. The band's members are: Sam Stavros (guitar, vocals, songwriting), Shawn Nourse (drums), and Jeff Mayer (bass) CLICK FOR MORE STORY.
