Re: mental models of the world

A few days ago Robert Spector asked:
> PS.  Does anybody know what language Google is implemented in?

Google has thousands of computers with lots of small programs
communicating with each other.  They're mostly in C++ and Python --
C++ for the performance-critical portions and Python for monitoring,
reports, and lots of other things.  Java is used too.

See http://www7.scu.edu.au/programme/fullpapers/1921/com1921.htm
and http://www.google.com/jobs/openings.html#systems for details. :)
