Ok you should really read the entire book. But if you want a cheat sheet, here it is... :-) thanks +Jonathan Rosenberg 
Across industries and around the world, technology is shaking up the old rules of business at what seems like a faster rate every day. Thanks to the internet, mobile devices and cloud computing, consumers are more empowered than ever, and individuals and small teams have the tools to make a huge impact.

To keep up, every business will have to adapt. This represents an incredible challenge, and an enormous opportunity. Over the course of the decade we spent leading Google, +Jonathan Rosenberg   and I had to relearn everything we thought we knew about running a successful business. To help you build from what we discovered, we’ve put together this brief guide with our rules for success in the Internet Century.

We hope it serves to encourage and inspire you. If you find it useful, there’s much more in our book at HowGoogleWorks.net.

Very cool. Coming from a pharma family, I find the movement around owning your own health data (and understanding them) to be extremely interesting.
love this story about Elizabeth Holmes, her focus and tenacity to solve such a critical problem in our medical system.

I read about Casper mattresses on +TechCrunch and thought it was pretty cool. They seem to be just as affordable as IKEA mattresses but much better in quality... BUT:

Sadly, I chatted with their customer service and they use synthetic latex, which isn't biodegradable. Room & Board on the other hand sells natural latex mattresses but at twice the cost.

I have conflicting emotions about this - on the one hand, making high quality mattresses affordable for people is pretty critical. But should it be done at the expense of our environment?

Way to go +Jonathan Rosenberg for finishing his incredible book with +Eric Schmidt!! I've been lucky enough to get a few sneak peeks of the manuscript as it was being developed. It's a funny and insightful read-just what you'd expect from JR. :)
One of these is a companion that will stand by your side through good times and bad. The other is a puppy.

I’m happy to announce How Google Works, my new book with  +Jonathan Rosenberg  and +Alan Eagle. It’s your guide to business management in the Internet Century, due out on 9/23. Follow #howgoogleworks for interesting insights and fun nuggets from the book over the next few weeks!

Well, this is scary. An Airbnb host isn't able to kick out a squatter - and because she rented to him for 30 days, he's claiming rights as a month-to-month tenant and won't leave unless she formally evicts him. Which could take 6 months and thousands of dollars. What a nightmare.

This totally freaks me out... yet I think it's absolutely amazing. It would make me really happy if Jibo could be combined with Roomba - robot housekeeper!! #robots   #jibo
