How to build Google.

I've been wondering a little bit about what it takes to build a company like Google - is it just about making the search engine algorithms a little better, is it hiring the smartest engineers going, or is it cleaning out your rivals of talented people?

I think this probably captures a bit about what makes Google seemingly different to other dotcoms.

First, I accept that Larry and Sergey really are brilliant. I'm sure that on IQ tests, they're off the charts, but that's not the kind of brilliance I mean. I mean brilliant in the sense that they have a vision that burns so brightly within them it scorches everything that stands in its way. The truth is so obvious to them that they have no patience for the niceties of polite society when bringing that vision to life.
