Google Chestnuts: Page as Shakespeare

February 3, 2016

I read “20 Inspirational Larry Page Quotes.” I need to be inspired. A company based on GoTo/Overture “inspiration” is equipped to offer guidance and maybe hope.

Alphabet, the new name for Google which still exists, embraces Loon balloons, the challenge of “solving death,” and the UK tax dust up. Each of these is, in its own way, inspirational.

Here are three quotes which soon may appear on motivational posters store front.

On Alphabet Google’s work (which includes selling ads): “I do think there is an important artistic component in what we do. As a technology company I’ve tried to really stress that.”

On anti trust and collusion among competitors regulations: ““Big companies have always needed and cooperated in areas where it made sense.”

On corporate governance and management oversight: “We don’t have as many managers as we should, but we would rather have too few than too many.”

Words to live by.
