Larry Page On Google’s Many Arms

I like Larry Page in his role as CEO of Google. He still says weird stuff, but nothing as creepy as Eric Schmidt used to. smile

Mr. Page argued that people’s instinctive reactions to new technologies were often negative. Once we see the utility in the new stuff, we often realize that it isn’t as scary as we once thought آ— and soon may realize we can’t live without it. "In the early days of Street View, this was a huge issue, but it’s not really a huge issue now," Mr. Page said of the company’s project to send a fleet of cars across the globe to snap photographs of public roadways. "People understand it now and it’s very useful," he said. "And it doesn’t really change your privacy that much. A lot of these things are like that."
