The secret of Google: MapReduce

Gooooogle The continuing success of Google can be put down to their increasing use of the MapReduce algorithm, it seems, allowing for huge parallelism of all sorts of computing tasks.

Also, the Sawzall language for processing chunked data, and a resulting map of hits to Google.com

Time to learn LISP, perhaps.
