They also spend a lot of time doing trolling each other's code reviews, waiting for slow batch processing (the old mainframe model of design), circling through bureaucracy, and looking for accurate documentation. They're hiring like crazy to maintain productivity, which is drinking a lot more poison than cure. Half the employees don't know there's a problem because they haven't worked anywhere better while the other half are waiting for stock grants to vest. My bet is that Google will lead the next cycle of dot-com crash. It will be devastating but, like forrest fire, it promote rapid new growth.
