Google Gives Back - Shares The Code

Jun 22, 2004 • 2:33 pm | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google News & Finances

In an article by the The Age, an Australian paper, titled "Google reveals its caring, sharing side", they write "Search engine giant Google is preparing to publicly release some of its underlying software code."

They quote Wayne Rosen, Google's VP of engineering, as saying the time has come for Google "give something back." Well I doubt they will be giving too much of their secret recipe out to the public. Coca Cola would never give up its secret recipe, so I doubt Google will.

But what was possibly more interesting, and I quote from the article, "He [Rosing] said Google will triple its workforce from, 700 to 2100, during the next 12 months." I guess the IPO is expected to bring in lots of cash, they need to burn it on something. Will "giving back something" and growing this fast be the right move?
