Adam Lashinsky, Where does Google go next?

Fact is, Google’s torrid growth is finally slowing, as the company’s sheer size dictates it must. And size necessitates changes. Gone are the days when Google could take full advantage of its quirkiness. It’s the market leader now, which presents a classic conundrum: Which is more important, process or innovation? For all Google’s success, it still has just one meaningful way of making money: its powerful search-advertising system.

 This article ties in with CNN Money ‘s Top 50 employers list.  I had the pleasure of working for their #3 pick during college — Wegman’s.  The Google article has me wondering — is it always more fun when you’re young and struggling? Or is it just that looking back, it SEEMS like it was more fun.
