Stories, Google’s chief executive officer Sundar Pichai says, are best told with pictures. During the company’s annual developer conference in San Francisco in May, the Indian-American presented clutter-free slides, dissecting Big Data in pictures and simple words. His first slide, for instance, had only the logos for Google’s primary products—Gmail, Android, Chrome, Maps, Search, YouTube and the Google Play Store—along with the text “1 Billion+ Users". His message: Each of the seven products has over a billion monthly-users.
