"Google has given a rare glimpse inside the vast data centres around the globe that power its services. They reveal an intricate maze of computers that process Internet search requests, show YouTube video clips and distribute email for millions of people.

With hundreds of thousands of servers, colourful cables and even bicycles so engineers can get around quickly, they range from a converted paper mill in Finland to custom made server farms in Iowa."

A truly unique corporation on this planet.

One question though... how is all this financed by ads?

Originally it wasn't. Investment, investment and more investment, coupled with in-genius ideas, and remarkably clever purchases (Youtube to name but one) has led to Google becoming one of the biggest brands on the planet.

The amount they make from advertising income would blow your mind!

A great look inside the internet...thanks for posting this.

For some reason the pictures reminded me of this:

Yeah! I think it's more of an eccentricity for Google to use the bikes than anything else. That's an older style bike! I know the G Bikes here in the US are being updated.

On October 9, 2006 Google bought YouTube, a leading video site, for $1.65 billion in stock.


I wonder how Google buys companies that don't make any money, and incorporates them into part of their corporation. Truly a giant.

Think about the part you quoted.

"Buying"... with "1.65 billion in stock".

1.65 billion in stock is a magic trick. Shuffling of paper. That's how the modern economic system works on the large scale... it's an ever inflating pyramid scheme of "confidence" with virtually nothing of *actual value* being exchanged.

A little news story here, a little news story there, and suddenly a corporation has an additional billion to "spend" by "buying with stock".

It's all a scam. Some people play this scam to then turn around and generate something of real value. Others use the scam to acquire things of real value without having to have generated genuine value themselves. At least no value besides inflating the "confidence". Most of us exchange our genuine value for a tiny always losing share of the scam.

Con-game naturally is short for Confidence Game... and it's no longer a mystery that fiat currency + stock is all about "confidence" and absolutely nothing more. If the confidence is lost, the value vanishes. Because it was never there.

Your thinking along the right lines. If anything, Google will be what resembles HAL sooner or later. I wouldn't be surprised if the creators decide to make Google self-aware especially with all the information running through Google alone so there honestly isn't likely a better candidate then Google to become HAL.

If you are interested in a pretty far out Augmented Reality Story about Google becoming self aware, send me a U2U. I had a thread going on a forum where the forum people didn't realize at first it was a story playing out in real time where their responses were fed into the story and the story was modified based on their responses. So there was a period of "wait... what's really going on here?"

It was a small scale thing overall compared to ARGs like I Love Bees, etc... but it seemed to blow a few minds which was fun.

Reminds me of them toys I take off the kids & amuse my self with when I take my daughter to the doctor's, the ones where you have to get the beads from one side to the other.

I bet working at Google is all fun & games

'Very few people have stepped inside Google’s data centers, and for good reason: our first priority is the privacy and security of your data, and we go to great lengths to protect it, keeping our sites under close guard,' the firm said.

- that's why you (google) keeps constantly asking for my cell phone no. so you can protect it in your databases.

and not to sell it, like all the private information google collects to advertisers and other retailers.

Since this is a conspiracy forum anyways, I'm just going to post this image here: i.imgur.com...

This image was taken from the link listed above (the actual google page). What's interesting about it is that it appears to be mirrored horizontally. (I haven't verified it myself as I haven't got PhotoShop or anything installed, but looking at certain details, it definitely looks mirrored)

That on it's own is already pretty strange, but what's stranger is that there is no mention of this whatsoever. Anyone have any idea why they would mirror an image?
