A few days ago, the entire online world (heck the offline one too) was abuzz with the news of Google’s impending restructuring. The last time the word ‘Alphabet’ was this popular was way back when I was in diapers and those squeaky shoes with lights on them were all the rage.

Let’s just say, well done.
