AlwaysWoW! For a Great Great WoW in Life

Thoughts from me about things that are cool, that are WoW, that blow me away. Observations about businesses and people from a wide variety of life. Daily encounters - and thoughts outside the box, inside the box and without any box. New thinking, and challenging old thinking. Passionate about life, about respect, and about integrity.

What we like

Google is going public - which is a long awaited move but apparently was hotly discussed in the company.

Why do I love this rocking company? Read some of the quotes that I took from the Asian Wall Street Journal (AWSJ) of Monday 3, 2004 which were submitted to the SEC for IPO filing purposes.

"Do no evil" - their internal mandra that they want to transport to the external world;

"No to quarterly guidance" - they write : "we are not able to predict our business within a narrow range for each quarter. A management team that is distracted by a series of short-term targets is as pointless as a dieter stepping on the scale every half an hour."

Share auction - which allows smaller investors to get into the market. And Google actually states that those "small guys" might sell quickly to gain from early rises in the market - and that this might lead to a drop in the shareprice initially.

First name basis - well, they didn't call themselves Mr. and Mrs. in the filing, but by their first names.

There are probably 10 other things that I could mention here, but this is just a short entry, without intention to get too much into detail.
