Google just filed to sell shares in an IPO. So far, response from commentators has been interesting. Some think the IPO is a search for meaning. Others wonder whether the offering will hurt other Net stocks, while a few stocks have already been buoyed.
Beyond the usual market concerns, it'll be interesting to see how this affects the company as a company. Will its culture change? Will its product and service offerings? Or will Google continue to search itself and help its smart, motivated team members do the right thing?
