Google Triumvirate on Time Cover

Sergey Brin, Eric Schmidt and Larry Page are on the cover of Time, that has an interesting title: "Can we trust Google with our secrets?".

Some excerpts from the interview:

"IS THERE A GRAND STRATEGY FOR GOOGLE? IT SEEMS AS IF YOU'RE DIVING INTO ALMOST EVERYTHING.

SCHMIDT: We try very hard to look like we're out of control. But in fact the company is very measured. And that's part of our secret.

PAGE: We don't generally talk about our strategy ... because it's strategic. I would rather have people think we're confused than let our competitors know what we're going to do. That's an easy trade-off.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO SUDDENLY BE SO WEALTHY?

BRIN: It takes a lot of getting used to. You always hear the phrase, money doesn't buy you happiness. But I always in the back of my mind figured a lot of money will buy you a little bit of happiness.

PAGE: If we were motivated by money, we would have sold the company a long time ago and ended up on a beach."
