Almost everyone who has had an idea that's somewhat revolutionary or wildly successful was first told they're insane.

LARRY PAGE, CNNMoney interview, May 1, 2008

Most portals show their own content above content elsewhere on the web. We feel that's a conflict of interest, analogous to taking money for search results. Their search engine doesn't necessarily provide the best results; it provides the portal's results. Google conscientously tries to stay away from that.

The Star Trek computer doesn't seem that interesting. They ask it random questions, it thinks for a while. I think we can do better than that.

Artificial intelligence would be the ultimate version of Google. So we have the ultimate search engine that would understand everything on the Web.

I have a simple algorithm, which is, wherever you see paid researchers instead of grad students, that's not where you want to be doing research.

LARRY PAGE, AAAS Annual Conference, Feb. 2007

As a society, on the larger questions we have, we're not making reasonable progress.

LARRY PAGE, CNNMoney interview, May 1, 2008

I didn’t start out building a search engine. I just said, “Oh, the links on the Web are probably interesting. Why don’t we try doing something with that?” I was pretty lucky that it was a useful thing to do.
