Re: Fascinating
Greene certainly has had an interesting and varies career. It will be fascinating to watch Google's Cloud business as it progresses over the decade. While it's the "fastest growing part of Google's business," it will be interesting to see if it becomes a major profit maker as well.

Google's Cloud vs..
I think Google has done a great job with its long-term cloud strategy, but MSFT and AWS simply have more of the "Rolodex"-factor for gaining customers. Google's one weakness (but it's a huge one) is that it isn't well-known for great customer service. Amazon has built a decent reputation for efficient customer service, and MSFT generally has a "devil you know" rep. Google is probably more of an "unknown unknown" when it comes to how it treats its customers.

Leadership and looking into the future
"Also, I don't really like to tell everybody what to do. I like for people to figure out what to do. ... ” This is how a good leader leads. This has been a very enjoyable read. Although the question at the end asking for Greene’s predictions for the next 10 to 20 years should have focus in the next five years, instead. Considering the speed in technological developments today, it’s impossible for anyone to see that far into the future. But well, being asked that question was not her fault.

Fascinating
Fascinating story. ”Tucci didn’t believe it could happen, so he agreed to do it.” Sometimes all what it takes to push an idea and be successful is to believe you can do it. It takes great confidence in yourself and in your abilities.
