Corporate Culture: Tech Giants

Hey Futurists! We're going to try to tackle this "corporate culture" topic that's been tentative forever. But we're going to break the topic of "corporate culture" into 3 parts to keep it manageable: "tech giants", "mavericks" (companies with weird cultures), and "startups", and we'll do the 2nd two at some unspecified time in the future. For this one we'll focus on tech giants, which means: Google, Apple, and Amazon.

What makes these companies so successful? How did they go from garage operations to domination of the tech landscape in only 1-2 decades? How do they manage technology of mindboggling complexity? How do such large companies movie at internet speed in the Internet Century?

    No it won't be at the Hackerspace. I don't know the location yet.

    Hi Annie, sorry for the slow reply -- I was travelling Tuesday and getting caught up with work today. I wouldn't want to pick a location outside of Boulder for regular meetings, but we might do it this once since you're "very passionate" about this topic, and the other place we're using lately for meetings, the Boulder HackerSpace, isn't (they're a good fit for "technical" topics but not otherwise). Also we should probably do it in October as there is only about 1 week left for people to plan their schedules if we did it in September.

    Also want to say thanks to Sheila as I haven't followed-up up on her message either (and Dru).

      No problem--We're flexible! Just let me know and we'll make it happen.

    My corporate office has offered to host. We are located at Denver West in Golden. There's no fee, and I'm sure they'd be willing to provide some refreshments. We have plenty of beautiful meeting spaces on our campus. This is a topic we are very passionate about.

    There's a room @ Alfalfa's (so they say). It may only be the large room (where folks eat). SEE:

    Too bad Meadows was n/a. Easier for me to get to. Cannot get to any location outside city of Boulder (on Sats). Hope a place can be found, tho. Enjoy!

  • Dru W.

    I guess we need to figure out the meeting location situation. I wonder how many folks would be willing to drive to Lafayette (Library) for a meeting? Or if Loren might be willing to "technically" sponsor us to meeting in the Louisville Lib. Or Broomfield? Or .... ???
