After the year that Google has had with their IPO and the success of their stock, I would have thought that Google's first annual shareholder meeting would be one big one event that every shareholder would want to attend. A chance to hear from the Google Guys, a chance to visit the Googleplex, and free food. Well, it appears I was wrong.
Perhaps the biggest news coming from the meeting is not what was said but that very few shareholders decided to attended the meeting.
Google Inc. shareholders got a free lunch Thursday at the online search engine leader's first annual meeting as a public company. There were plenty of leftovers. Fewer than 200 people attended the meeting at the company's Mountain View headquarters ? a high-tech mecca known as the "Googleplex."
Note: A webcast of the shareholder meeting is still available online.
