Went over to Google to hang out with Larry Page. Larry is one of the smartest people I've met and I wanted to get his opinion on some theories I had about where personal communication devices were going. We had started the discussion in Davos and were following up. Larry is a World Economic Forum "Global Leader for Tomorrow" and was also at Paul Saffo's Annual Geeks Dinner in Davos. I had met Larry a few times in the past, but it wasn't until we started talking about technology that we started to communicate in earnest. Sergey dropped in for awhile and we hung out in an office that looked more like a living room with lots of gadgets and toys. Definitely a great environment to work.

Larry & Sergey are both worth $7 Billion a piece yet it surprises me that they live such modest lives.

Both are my icons along with Bill Gates & Michael Dell.

Perhaps Larry and/or Sergey can boost my websites PR ;) Actually, recently I've been thinking about how Google needs another innovation followed by another IPO.

Currently, they have the customer loyalty and MSN's attempt for a better search engine is slow but quite a possible threat. Yahoo is out of the question as far as search but they have google beat on the portal.

What google needs is 22nd century thinking. Your search engine still needs refining and Microsoft (MS) is working on their own, very spectacular, algorithm.

Many other tools & services on Google are just fun freebies and few are very useful however it's not enough to keep Google alive for the next X years.

AdSense is being overused and overclicked. For my experience, it worked extremely well but was very expensive; this was a year ago. Now I see Google turining into Kanoodle where it's structured so users just click and it isn't quite as targeted.

Google needs further innovation and it needs to act now. GoogleZone is possible. The Epic can happen.

Google needs to become the next Microsoft!

I've done some research in optimization and believe I have a way that google might be able to order search results based on an individual's use. The idea needs to be flushed out, but in principle I believe it will go a long way in making searches more relevant to an individual...

my belief is we are all unique and search result relevency, while might be somewhat dependent upon the crowd, ultimately it is solely dependent on the individual's uniqueness...

can anyone put me in touch with someone at google that would be willing to review a white paper on the concept?

thanks in advance...

Thanks

Dear Mr. Larry Page,
I hope this blog maybe a way to reach out to you regarding your article in Forbes and your thesis that "Silicon Valley is the premier place in the world to generate ideas and achieve goals". I am originally from Russia and work for a private operating foundation (SAGA) in Redwood City. We would like Google as a company and a great team of social entrepreneurs to look into the issue of nuclear nonproliferation, security of nuclear materials and nuclear terrorism. Saga Foundation is a nonpartisan organization, founded by the first developer of the Sand Hill Road, Bill Laughlin. Google is the most innovative and open-minded organization, and we at Saga Foundation believe that Google can help promote nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation and come up with a creative idea how to deliver the message to the general public.

Looking forward to hearing from you or your team.
Saga Foundation

Mr. Page and Mr. Brin,
I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that you both are truly inspiring, not only to me, but especially to all your employees, and also to the rest of the world by your willingness to reject the salaries that you actually deserve, for the betterment of the Google Enterprise. I read the article at Ecnmag.com – March 25, 2009. My hat is off to you both! You have shown tremendous leadership by your actions. I wish I could say the same for the management of all those we are bailing out! I have been a Google fan since the beginning when my IT manager recommended it. Just wish I had been smart enough to invest in you then!!!

Again, I just wanted to say thanks for setting a great example and raising the bar for others to follow in these tough times! I believe Google has a bright future – Keep up the good work!

P.S. Mr. Page - Wow, I just found out when I Googled your name that today is your birthday also – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Best Regards,
Gary Wormington
