Articles on Google by Steven Levy

With In the Plex, Steven Levy [@StevenLevy] has arguably written one of the most insightful books on the history of Google, its corporate culture and its successful and not so successful projects. But since the publication of the book in 2011 a lot has happened and Levy has steadily kept reporting on the developments at Google–first at Wired and now at Medium.
