The future according to Google’s Larry Page

An in-depth profile of Larry Page, the man responsible for guiding the Google ship. A good look also at some of the inner workings of Google.

“Areas where the Google+ and Android teams work suddenly began to require special badges. Page’s own suite is on the top floor of the Google+ building. Security is so tight that even Laszlo Bock, the senior vice president in charge of people operations, received an e-mail reprimand after he held the door open for someone. “I got busted once,” Bock says. “They reminded me that even if you are going in with someone, you should badge in.” Bock says the access restrictions made Googlers “very grumpy.” … His obsession with speed can take peculiar forms. He once asked Sundar Pichai, the senior vice president in charge of the Chrome web browser and other apps, to be mindful of the seconds it took executives to transition onstage at companywide meetings. “You should come closer to the stage and stand, so you don’t make the company wait,” Pichai remembers being told.”
