Google "Invented" the Internet (?)

Great article from Wired:
"If Xerox PARC Invented the PC, Google Invented the Internet" by Cade Metz
http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2012/08/google-as-xerox-parc/all/

They are just touching the tip of the iceberg with respect to what people say about Jeff Dean.  Absolutely hilarious stuff (better than what they shared in the article) ... that I probably can't share.

The article went on to talk a little bit about Google's data centers.  Fascinating to see how Google's data centers are viewed from outside.  The article had some interesting errors, but one thing they got right was this: "We don’t know much about what the company’s now uses inside these top secret facilities, but you can bet its a step ahead of what it did in the past."   :)
