Larry Page and Sergey Brin with Vinod Khosla

I don't think anyone would argue that Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the co-founders of Google, were not incredibly smart - not even the people who read here and hate Google. They are widely smart people, the co-founders. So when you get them together, doing a 45 minute interview, with Vinod Khosla a venture capitalist who is worth $1.5 billion but was unable to convince his management team back in the early days to acquire Google for $1.5 million or so, you want to listen to the conversation.

Very little of this conversation talks about search but it does make you think about the direction Google is going both in search and connected devices and technologies.

Here is the video:

Listening to Larry & Sergey talking about Google, and where it's headed is always fascinating to me. The mix of Larry's deep philosophical ideas, and Sergey's humor on top makes for interesting conversations -- well worth watching for anyone curious about Google, in my opinion.

Sergey looks like he just rolled out of bed and forgot to comb his wig, slipped on his CROCS and showed up at the interview. This is just another case of nobodies hiding behind the name of a university to springboard their own business. Anyone wanting to do the same? Just go to university, convince the professors that its in their best interest, use their equipment and name, continue to do so until you 'have something', leave the university and sell out. And they did sell out to investors, one being AMAZON's founder for $250k and some others. The simplicity and perfection in the G$$gle search is what made it interesting, but because they offered SEO tools, like ways to 'read' the competition, is what really made a difference. Most of the world was happy with AOL and others. Now that G$$gle search is terrible and sold out to big businesses, there is no reason to keep using them and no reason for SEO's to take interest in them because of the war they wage on their small clients. G$$gle has money, no unique cool ideas, just money, so will continue to whack-a-mole by buying new businesses in the hope one takes off. But they won't and G$$gle will continue to fail. These 2 guys are not special or brilliant or have any great insight. They used a university to get rich, now that they are rich, they are just rich, thats it, end of story
