Google Is Betraying ItselfFrom a 2004 Playboy interview with Larry Page, in which the Google co-founder describes a very different company from the one we use now:

PLAYBOY: Portals attempt to create what they call sticky content to keep a user as long as possible.

PAGE: That's the problem. 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 conscientiously tries to stay away from that. We want to get you out of Google and to the right place as fast as possible. It's a very different model.

A lot changes in eight years. [PandoDaily via Gruber]
