Sergey Brin As Seen On Google

How is Sergey Brin presented on Google.com? The descriptions vary, but one word is repeated more often than the others: morality.

Sergey Brin

... is co-founder and President, Technology at Google.

... is under tremendous internal pressure to abandon his principles.

... is finding that purity just doesn't scale.

... is Google's moral compass.

... is well known for saying that the rule the company operates by is "Don't be evil."

... is jet-lagged; he has the vaguely disoriented look of a young man still finding his bearings after a very long, strange trip.

... realized search is number two online activity and checking e-mail is number one.

... is still cryptic about a possible Google browser.

... is taking Cambodian children as an example of how democratic and wide-spread their search engine is.

... is a perfect example of a young entrepreneur: young, good looking, and fabulously rich.

... is a technologist. He is woefully under-equipped to handle the subtle difficulties of human communication.

... is passionate about the intersection of biology, technology and genetics and envisions a day when computer users will be able to Google their Genes.

... is considering coming back to Stanford to finish his doctoral degree.

... was quite cocky about his intellect, often trying to prove teachers of various subjects (read: Math) just how wrong they were.

... is known to spend some lunch hours on the beach volleyball court [from] the Google campus.

... is not considering to buy Microsoft.

... is notoriously skeptical about the semantic web.

... has even compared the Google search engine to the computer HAL in the film "2001: A Space Odyssey".

... has said that the perfect search engine would be like "the mind of God".

... is a Russian success story.

... his birth date is August 21, 1973.

Happy birthday, Sergey Brin!

  3. I believe that Sergei Brin is an example of how an ordinary person can succeed by doing good. Google has definitely come a long way from where it started but the people behind its success remain ordinary, down-to-earth people.

  4. Dear Mr. Brin,

    my name is Alexander Cherkasky, I am inventor and biologist.
    Please consider and support my following proposal:

    I propose the joint creation of The Google Institute for Realization of Inventions, preferably of Biomedical Inventions, independently from status of inventors.
    My proposed Inventions Implementation System can allow dynamic and very efficient solving of problems of people, especially can allow very efficient and very dynamic implementation of inventions for regeneration as well as inventions for combating viruses, autoimmune diseases and cancer.
    The proposed Institute can be considered as a complementary system to companies and academic research organizations and can cooperate with them.
    This structure will be the new system, the third column of economy, in addition to academic research institutes and companies, because researchers at institutes and companies are generally staff members who are focused on their own projects. There is a paradox, because for example people need to combat viruses, such as HIV, and on the one side billions are donated to combat viruses, on the other side, inventions, especially my inventions, exist in order to combat viruses both in and outside of cells and these my antiviral inventions are published as patent documents, but people do not get these inventions, although people need these inventions.
    In the first stage the Institute will be the organization offering an internet site for presentation and open evaluation of grouped inventions, especially concepts or key inventions for combating diseases, as well as for regeneration and rejuvenation. Thus people will get a new based hope, because they will see transparently, openly the possibilities of healing. These are possibilities for patients to know and realize therapeutical inventions and these inventions could be applied for Compassionate Use.
    Thus it will be possible to bring together entrepreneurs and investors, inventors, other experts, patients and biotech service companies, who will be interested to get orders for open transparent realization of selected inventions.
    Donations can be used also for ordering biotech service companies to realize the selected inventions.
    The second stage can be establishing the Institute's own labs.
    The proposed Institute can work also as a company.

    On my person:

    I was born 1981 in Zaporozhye, Ukraine, living since 1996 in Dusseldorf, Germany, have finished Goethe-Gymnasium and Heinrich-Heine-University in Dusseldorf, my inventions include causal therapeutic solutions for combating cancer, viruses (both in and outside of cells), autoimmune and immune complex diseases, inventions for rejuvenation and tissue regeneration, inventions of novel multi-parallel diagnostic and gene sequencing systems, new materials and high-quality synthetic diamonds, and I have German patents and published American, international and German patent applications claiming priority and novelty worldwide.
    Known media including Stern (The Star) wrote about me and I got bronze medal “For Outstanding Achievements” and the Honorary Certificate at the (largest in Germany) inventors competition IENA (Ideas-Inventions-New Products) 2003 in Nuremberg. In addition, I offer innovative solving of scientific and technological problems in biomedicine, biotechnology and material science, and for creating and improvement of intellectual property in these fields.
    My patent documents were referenced in more than 25 patents of companies, universities and research institutes in 10 countries, in The USA, Canada, Spain, France, UK, Japan, China, Switzerland, Belgium and Germany.

    I will be glad and grateful to get your positive and soon response.

    Sincerely,
    Alexander Cherkasky
