Long before Google Maps (long before Google for that matter), there was Esri. There still is Esri. 
As Esri is being recognized for its contributions to environmental conservation four decades into its life, the digital mapping pioneer serves as an object lesson in corporate reinvention.

Some great comments from +Sundar Pichai about future product direction for Google+, Photos, Hangouts.  We've been working hard on these changes and I'm really excited about what these will mean for our users.  As +Radiohead says, "Everything in its right place..."
