Google Tech Talks: Sharing Knowledge

Google Tech Talks is a series of conferences that Google organizes for its employees. These talks are later published on YouTube Google Tech Talks, and at the moment of writting this post, there are about 850 videos uploaded. All kind of technical topics are discussed and the speakers are usually SME (Subject Matter Experts) so it’s worth watching … For instance, you can check out this interesting conference by Tim Lister talking about the fundamentals of Peopleware:


Just as a matter of interest, a simple Most Viewed seek reveals that the most popular Google TechTalk ever was about (guess what?)…Sex. It’s got 1,275,000 more views than the second one 🙂

In addition, you can find some Google Tech Talks videos within YouTube Google Channel. A case in point is the one in which David Allen talks about GTD.

Sincerely speaking, I’m not one of those people who look at Google as the great benefactor of Humanity. It’s just a corporation with a worldly mission: making money. However, I must admit Google knows how to play the game. They’ve managed to join these two concepts: Internet and Google, up to the point of we can hardly imagine one without the other. We all know that sharing information is the main pillar of the Internet. Hence Tech Talks are Internet at its purest form because it means hours and hours of shared knowledge.

Other big corporations might take a lesson from this.

UPDATE

Via Parrulo (In Spanish) I find out Google Developers Channel with lots of stuff aimed at developers. Who wants to sleep?
