Welcome to The Research Guide for Google

To organize the world's information-that appears to be Google's aim. What does such a goal involve, exactly? What are the implications for academia and creative people? For business, the media, and society at large? This program seeks answers to those questions by going behind the scenes at the Google headquarters in Mountain View, California, as well as the company's London offices. A conversation with Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer and Google's "Chief Internet Evangelist," sheds light on search engine innovations and Google's role in advancing them. Interviews with company vice president Marissa Meyer and other key players explore the inner workings of the Information Age giant.
